IF WE develop simple, repairable and inexpensive vehicles, can we transform the automotive industry?
MIDIPILE tries to shift the paradigm from personal car ownership to access to a frugal and resilient mobility ecosystem. We develop and manufacture our minimalist, efficient and repairable vehicles in France. It is a capacitive, conscious and desirable means of transport to build a neutral carbon world.
The future of mobility isn’t simply electrifying vehicles and reducing emissions. This is only part of the solution; the other half is to revolutionize the system itself. Midipile is leading the move towards a resilient and sustainable mobility ecosystem by offering a new type of vehicle and ownership scheme. Combined with the establishment of Low Emission Areas in Europe, the company’s efforts promise to bring meaningful change.
MIDIPILE offers a solution combining ecological, economic and customer trends.
The company’s vehicles, which are a cross between a cargo bike and small light utility vehicle, are 4-wheeled electric assist bike with closed bodywork for more safety and comfort. They’re capable of carrying 300kg of payload and running at 45km/h, making them robust, versatile and attractive options for inner city usage.
The vehicle’s low weight (250kg), moderate speed and contained dimensions (l0.9xL3xH1,2) make it possible to markedly reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions, particularly when compare to traditional automotive solutions.
MIDIPILE vehicles are connected for a better mobility experience.
Midipile meets 6 of the UN Millennium Development Goals [3, 7, 8, 9, 11, 13]
Design2CO2: They develop vehicles and services compatible with carbon neutrality efforts.
Energy efficiency: The company’s vehicles use little energy by design, given that they are electric and use partly renewable energy
A committed and community-based project: Their vehicles promote and enable the development of local economic activity
Industrialization and resilience of our territories: Midipile produces their vehicles locally, as close as possible to their potential users
MIDIPILE has been using Dassault Systèmes applications since its creation in 2020 to imagine and develop their hybrid vehicle. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform gives them access to many tools to accelerate their development. They are now a car manufacturer equipped to offer a new category of vehicles. It is essential for Midipile to meet the many challenges presented in the production process, from design to mechanical engineering to electronic integration.
MIDIPILE will also use project management, modeling or simulation applications to keep their production rates on track with their ambitious schedule.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a powerful tool that allows the company to connect, share skills and share business.
MIDIPILE plans to use collaborative tools to build on integrated and industry-proven processes.
It is also an opportunity for them to create partnerships and facilitate exchanges, to go forward quickly and to go further.
If we can create a Pipeline in the Sky™ for transporting hydrogen from where it’s produced to where it’s most needed and transport freight 100% carbon-free for less than the cost of today’s air freight, can we ensure that we achieve CO2-reduction targets by 2050?
