The car, named Noah by the TU/ecomotive student team, was designed as a city car and features two seats and a spacious trunk.

Noah was revealed recently and is currently undertaking a European tour of car manufacturers, suppliers and universities to inspire others.

In addition to its biobased composition, it is also ultra-light and electrically-powered. Noah reaches a top speed of 110 km p/h and the battery range lasts up to 240 km. At 360kg, the weight of the car excluding batteries is less than half the weight of comparable production cars.

In addition to being biobased, the parts are also recyclable, resulting in a 100% circular car, sustainable in all life phases.

The PLA supplied by Total Corbion PLA for use in the car is biobased and recyclable and made from renewable resources, offering a reduced carbon footprint versus many traditional plastics.

High heat Luminy PLA grades were used to construct the car, in order to ensure durability and sufficient heat resistance.

“The result of this fantastic project shows just how far biobased materials have come, to produce such a complex product as a car. Noah is the proof that PLA is suitable for so much more than packaging. This is the first ever car to feature a fully biobased chassis and body panels,” says François de Bie, Senior Marketing Director at Total Corbion PLA, who is pleased with the achievement.
