Baldos II originates as an entry for the 2009 Shell Eco-marathon competition. It is built in cooperation between students from different fields of study, such as Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Design Engineering and Computer Science from Luleå University of Technology, Sweden. The car has been designed to meet the requirements set by Swedish authorities for legal street use. This includes wind screen wiper, 3-point seat belt, proper lighting, reverse gear and twin electric engines. Baldos II is tested and found to be Sweden's most fuel efficient car approved for street use.The internal combustion engine in the serial hybrid drive train is modified from an ordinary gasoline engine to run on pure ethanol. The fuel consumption of the vehicle corresponds to 0.065 litres ordinary gasoline/10 km, which results in a CO2 emission of 12 g/km. The car is design for one person only, and has room for a luggage in the size of an ordinary cabin bag. With full tank the total weight is 220 kg, and the total length is 2650 mm. The light weight has been achieve thorough an advanced monocoque chassis manufactured of carbon fiber sandwich construction.According to safety regulations the car is equipped with dual circuit hydraulic disc brakes. Today, the Team Baldos aims for defining a higher standard for street vehicles in Sweden.
