Lemaitre by Kimura. Making electric cars interesting.



LCe trim shown in Niagara Aqua Metallic.


Unveiled at the 89th International Auto Show at Geneva, the Lemaitre is Kimura’s first-ever mass production electric car. Utilizing the CM-T platform that underpins almost all modern Kimura vehicles, the Lemaitre proves that electrification is viable on the new platform. 4-wheel independent suspension is standard on all models and provides a supple ride with sporty driving dynamics. Almost 75% of the car’s major components are made from aluminum, shaving weight down to under 1600 KG. Under greatest scrutiny, of course, are the motor and battery specifications; with a flat 65.5 kWh lithium-ion battery that remains under the floor and a 185-horsepower Permanent-magnet, synchronous AC motor, the Lemaitre is efficient yet exciting. Don’t worry about range anxiety, either; the Lemaitre gets an EPA estimated 280 miles of range. The suspension can be adjusted from comfort to sport as well as the regenerative braking using the infotainment. Overall, the Lemaitre is a concise package that should feel like any other car - underneath, however, it breaks grounds for the company.

Inside, the Lemaitre takes on a retro-modern take on an electric car interior. A massive 14" display is standard on all models and controls most of the vehicle’s functions such as radio, navigation, and interior lighting. ClearSense³™ debuts in the Lemaitre along with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. A whole suite of active safety features in KimuraGuard™ are available. With a digital display that harks back to the original display of the first Kimura Auburn, the overall interior aesthetic is chic yet completely contemporary. In terms of the exterior design, simplicity is key. An elegant front end flows nicely into the geometric rear, both of which are complemented by gloss black “masks” that help to accentuate the car’s wide stance. An illuminated plug-in socket provides a nice touch to the car’s design. Overall, the Lemaitre is elegant inside and out, providing the perfect start to Kimura’s electric car production.

Helruna by Kimura. An unforgettably flawless sports car.



SCt trim shown in San Francisco Blue Metallic.


All-new for 2015, the 4th generation Kimura Helruna stunned crowds around the world at the Los Angeles Auto Show with its striking style and improved performance. 2 engine options are available, both being turbocharged inline-4’s with power outputs ranging from 186 to 258 hp. A 6-speed manual is standard on all trims whilst an 8-speed automatic is optional on SXt and SCt trims. Thanks to copious use of high-strength steel and aluminum in the body and chassis, weight is kept down to under 1300 kg on every trim - even with 2+2 seating. Helruna’s classic FR layout guarantees that your driving experience is as zesty as any high-performance sports car. Honed at Tokachi International Speedway, the home of Kimura Racing-Ralliart, the fine-tuned double wishbone and multi-link suspension provides the perfect balance of control, athleticism, and comfort at all speeds. Most of all, the Helruna rewards the driver for learning the nuances in the joys of driving - no matter what your skill level is, you will be able to enjoy the Helruna as an every day sports car.

Great care was taken when designing the 2015 Helruna. With global consultation and styles considered from every walk of life, we have created this finished design that equalizes elegance with true sporty intent. Inside, the interior prioritizes its driver; a perfect, low driving position that is creates an open, airy space that remains high-quality and bright with colored accenting. Within its simple, flowing body and balanced proportions lies great detail from every angle. The side vents and body line hark back to the original Hokkaido Motors K-1000C of the 1950s, and has since been a design tradition for all Kimura sports machines. No matter what angle you look from, the Helruna is sure to leave an impression on its audience; this is just a small taste of what lies beneath the skin.

This is the car whose design and engineering was decided in CSC1 if I’m not mistaken. My ideal spec for this generation of Helruna would be a top-shelf, manual-only, KR-R with every option box ticked, including the Active Safety and Track Packages, and ordered in San Francisco Blue Metallic with a Victoria Beige interior.

Hana by Kimura. The future of smart, stylish, go-anywhere travelling.



LCt 1.6t AWD trim shown in Monaco Aqua Metallic.


The redesigned 2nd generation Hana combines chic styling with smart packaging that makes the most of the Hana’s urban size. Internationally there are 3 engine options are available with 2 more diesels plants available in European and Japanese markets. In North American markets, the Hana will receive a naturally aspirated 1.8 L Inline-4. European and Asian markets start with a 1.3 L turbocharged inline-3, with all markets having an optional turbocharged 1.6 L inline-4 that can be paired with all-wheel drive. An 8-speed automation is standard on 1.3 L and 1.6 L models, although a 6-speed manual is optional on 1.6 L trims. The next-generation CM-T platform underpins the Hana. Therefore, the platform is primarily made out of high-strength steel and fortified with aluminum, with a structure that is 75% stiffer than the previous vehicle. On the road, the Hana’s handling remains dynamic and precise, with easy maneuverability in tight spaces. Optional AWD gives the Hana all-weather capability so you can travel everywhere. A meticulously engineered SUV that can be enjoyed by all walks of life, the Hana proves to be a capable performer in all aspects.

Inside and out, the new Hana takes a bold stance on design and functionality. Inside, the combination of an upscale ambiance with playful details help to formulate a space that can be treated as a second home. Body-colored accents, ambient lighting, and a customizable interface help make the car feel like your own whilst high-quality interior materials let you know that you’re in something special. The Hana is the first Kimura to come standard with a digital instrument gauge which can project information from the infotainment to the eye sight of the driver in complete clarity. The front seats are deeply scalloped in order to provide more rear legroom, but thanks to new AirLoft technology they remain even more comfortable and supple than standard bucket seats. On the outside, the new Hana has a bold design that is sure to turn heads. Donning the company face in a way never before seen, the futuristic yet timeless styling employs sweeping curves and hard edges around the front and rear fascias. With cohesive angles working in harmony to create a burly yet refined look, the exterior design has the credentials to stand out of any crowd. Dual-tone body paint options help to emphasize the bold new look of the Hana. Well-crafted on the inside and distinctive outside, the new Hana has the ability to impress everyone who drives one.

H3X Concept by Kimura. Envisioning the next-generation sports car for the near future.


Revealed at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, the Kimura H3X Concept previews what is soon to come in the Kimura lineup. Under the hood of the H3X concept lies a turbocharged 1.2 Liter Inline-3 engine and an electric motor which combine to produce over 300 horsepower. Mated to a 7-speed sequential transmission and able to switch from pure electric to hybrid power at any time, the H3X is capable of achieving over 55 MPG and up to 80 miles on electric range alone. The lightweight carbon fiber/aluminum chassis means steadfast acceleration and improved economy, as well as a rigid chassis that is one of the stiffest produced by Kimura. Even with the batteries, the kerb weight of the H3X rings it at under 1100 kgs, making it a svelte sports machine. Active suspension components and shutters around the car provide technology that is soon to make their way to mainstream Kimura vehicles.


Outside, the H3X is a clear evolution of the classic Kimura style. The aggressive sculpting and suggestive vents maintain brand identity, but with dramatic proportions on a short wheelbase it’s clear that this 2-seater sports concept is making a statement. The active technology headlights are a fierce complement to the bold, dynamic front end treatment. Along the sides, there are more aerodynamic components that help to direct airflow over the rear wheels for maximum air efficiency. The rear echos the sculpted nature of the front, with a bold rear diffuser and exaggerated taillights. On the inside, the combination of new and old come into play - a “virtual cockpit” lies in the sight of the driver, with a camera mounted to the front that displays the road ahead in a faux-3d style. The center infotainment screen has an innovative AR technology that can speak to the driver and guide them to any destination in clear detail, along with motion controls. Overall, the H3X’s style and functionality meld into one beautifully designed, elegant sports car.

Pretty much the best looking compact car I have ever seen made on this game. Nice job.


#52

Presentations always on point :clap:


#53

I could not agree more with you. And the Avina definitely has the potential to support a true high-performance version - a small hot hatch to challenge the likes of the Fiesta ST.
