TUM CREATE showcases future EV technologies with e-taxi launch at Tokyo

TUM CREATE has unveiled its electric taxi prototype, codenamed EVA, at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.  It will be on display at Booth 8 in West hall 4 of the Tokyo Big Sight from 22 November to  1 December 2013.  EVA serves as a platform to showcase the results of the innovations and developments at TUM CREATE, a joint research programme by Technische Universität München (TUM) and Nanyang Technological University (NTU).

The car's highlight is the super-fast charging system which is designed to be recharged in just 15 minutes to cover a realistic range of 200 km( based on Singapore driving patterns).  This will be an industry benchmark as other features found on EVA include the use of lightweight materials and energy-saving solutions such as individualized air-conditioning.

EVA was designed from the ground-up as an e-taxi and is a result of interdisciplinary research in the areas of energy storage, battery charging, thermal management, and lightweight materials and design.

TUM CREATE is funded by the Campus for Research Excellence And Technological Enterprise (CREATE) programme under the National Research Foundation (NRF), an agency of Singapore’s Prime Minister’s Office.

Besides the cabin cooling system, EVA’s innovative seats provide a maximum comfort for both the driver and passengers driving in humid tropical climate. The ergonomically designed seats are equipped with a purpose-built system where suction draws away moisture and heat from the surfaces of the seat. In addition, the front passenger seat folds forward to reveal an integrated child seat for children aged 9 months to 3 years old, which fills the void in the area of safety for young taxi passengers.

The climate controls, in-car entertainment, booking and digital payment systems are also linked via the infotainment system that allows passengers to control air-conditioning and audio settings wirelessly from their personal mobile devices. Similarly, the central control panel and driver’s instrument cluster are also connected seamlessly to the on-board systems, and are able to provide driving statistics and power-saving tips to the driver.
