EVA - The Electric Taxi
April 28, 2015
My employer TUM CREATE is a research organization centered around electric vehicles. In this context, it was decided to also build an actual electric vehicle. As taxis in Singapore account for 15% of all driven kilometers, though they only make up 3% of all vehicles. Thus, the leverage effect for environmental impact is especially high in this category of vehicles. Following this, TUM CREATE decided to build an electric taxi, designed for tropical megacities, such as Singapore. The outcome of this project is EVA.
