Singapore Testing Electric Taxis as Means Of Curbing Emissions, 5 Dec 2013
The research project is a joint venture between Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Recently at the Tokyo Motor Show they unveiled its electric taxi concept car simply called EVA.
In Singapore taxis account for less than 3% of the vehicle population, but contribute 15% of the total distance of miles traveled. In the city two-shift taxis commonly drive well over 300 miles a day. The new EVA can cover more than 120 miles on a single charge. Another bonus the battery in EVA can be totally charged in 15 minutes. This saves on both down time and lost cab fares. Full story
