The ACM consortium created in the framework of the project "IKT-EM III" funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and energy of Germany introduced June 2 in Munich, the final version of the electric car has received the name CITY eTaxi.
This is a simple electric vehicle with four wheels that has been designed for the urban environment. The scope of its application will not only work in a taxi, but a number of other related areas, such as Carsharing, for small transport or tourism.
The goal of the ACM was to create a competitive, resource-efficient and environmentally friendly car. In the summer of 2015, the project was named the flagship project of the Federal government. And, two years later, in 2017, the consortium will begin practical tests of their offspring in the Bavarian capital Munich. CITY eTaxi plays in lightweight category (L7e) and is aimed at growing niche of urban, electro-mechanical, light, filling the gap between cars and two-wheeled vehicles.
The basic idea of machine — bystrosbornye battery, which can be taken at special charging stations
Ideally, the charging terminals should be powered by solar panels located on the roofs of nearby houses and other environmentally friendly sources of energy.A version with replaceable batteries, but for scooters already in use for example in Taiwan, where there is a project GOGORO, in China, the company Kandi uses on their machines replacement batteries, but they are replaced by special machines. Project change batteries on a large electric cars has already failed in France, where for some time it was produced under Renault Fluence Z. UOM now a new variant from the German developers, but this time on very small electromobility.
