"Mega Joins Anti-Terror War"
PRESS INFORMATION FROM AIXAM LTD. Aixam A.751 Facts The Aixam A.751 is a low environmental-impact passenger vehicle designed specifically for city and short-hop travel-to-work commuting. Offering 2 +2 seating in a vehicle whose overall length is less than 3 metres, the A.1751 uses a constantly-variable single-lever control transmission coupled to a 479 cc Kubota diesel. This combination delivers low exhaust emissions with a 50 MPH maximum that is in tune with recent moves towards implementing lower speed limits taken by many UK metropolitan authorities. Thanks to a low overall kerb weight of only 380 Kg, the A.751 can deliver fuel economy figures of 80 MPG. Pricing remains to be finalised, but is expected to start at £7,500 on the road, including a 2 year warranty. Specification still remains comprehensive, with a digital dashboard, electric windows and an anti-theft system. Rack and pinion steering is fitted, and McPherson strut front, and fully-independent trailing arm rear suspension. Benefiting from Aixam’s long European experience in designing cars of this type, the A.751 employs an aluminium chassis and occupant safety cell, clad in impact-resistant polycarbonate panels. (The Aixam is the only quadricycle to have passed European crash testing). Aluminium is a readily-recyclable metal, with the ABS acrylic materials used for the vehicle’s body available for granulation and ultimate re-use at end-of-life. Aixam Ltd. is the UK distributor for the Aixam A.751, manufactured by Aixam Mega in a purpose-built plant at Aix-les-Bains, France.
