TUM CREATE Unveils Electric Taxi in Tokyo – 15-Minute “Super-Fast Charging” is Hailed as “Solution to EV Range Challenge”
TUM CREATE unveiled its EVA electric taxi prototype at the recent Tokyo Motor Show.
What’s makes EVA most remarkable is its “15-minute super-fast charging as solution to EV range challenge.”
According to TUM CREATE, EVA serves as a “platform to showcase the results of the innovations and developments.”
TUM CEATE says EVA has a realistic range of up to 200 km. That’s not extraordinary, but its 15-minute charging system is. TUM CREATE doesn’t describe this system in detail, but does say it’s an industry benchmark, which we assume means that it charges even quicker than Tesla’s Supercharger.
EVA is a “new electric taxi for tropical mega cities, developed and constructed by two leading universities.”
EVA will eventually be introduced into the market in Singapore.
Some additional features specific to EVA are listed below:
- Super-fast charging
- Individualized air-conditioning
- Interactive infotainment system
- Integrated child-seats
