SWINCAR e-Spider harnesses the natural forces of physics so that, like a pendulum, centrifugal force and gravity are combined in a natural equilibrium creating a very stable vehicle. Cornering or on slopes the driver remains horizontal whilst the wheels stay in contact with even the most uneven ground. There are four
driving and steering wheels and when combined with the vehicle’s low centre of gravity, delivers an exciting but safe driving experience.
Downhill the engine brake recharges the batteries; this regenerative braking is very safe, durable and helps increase the range.

Legislation and certification
SWINCAR e-Spider is registered in France under the MAGA (agricultural vehicle) legislation and will soon be approved under European law as a light quadricycle. These are four-wheeled microcars defined by limitations in terms of weight, power and speed.
In France SWINCAR MAGA (agriculture) can be driven without a license for persons from the age of 16 if he works on a farm and with a driving license from the age of 18 for others.
Check the laws in your home country before taking SWINCAR onto public roads. (registration and insurance)
SWINCAR obtained MAGA approval for driving on public roads in France in July 2017.
Two versions of SWINCAR are now available: the French road legal SWINCAR version MAGA and the SWINCAR Standard version.
European approval (European directive 168/2013 / EC) for SWINCAR registered as a light quadricycle (L6e) is in progress.
