An electric car for Africa - Because Africa is not for Sissies!
Africa is a tough place and it's requirements differ vastly from 1st world urbanised countries. Not only must the vehicle be tough but it must be easily and cheaply serviced.
An electric car to “serve the needs of the African population” was unveiled at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt. The Technical University of Munich designed the car, aimed at rural transportation. Called the aCar, it was designed for passenger and cargo transportation.
“The aCar is an offroad-capable vehicle that is affordable for people there and is capable of transporting heavy loads.”
The aCar is powered by 2 x 8kW motors and has an electric range of 80km. It has a battery capacity of 20kWh, a top speed of 60km/h, seating for 2 people, and can carry a load of 1 ton.
