Urban Electric Vehicle for Public Transportation 931795

The design of a small electric bus powered by batteries is underway at the Instituto de Ingeniería of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (IIUNAM). It is intended that this vehicle, which will be capable of transporting 30 persons, eventually replace many of the gasoline powered “microbuses”, presently operating in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA), where very high atmospheric pollution levels are present. The first prototype will be field tested in a 5 km loop of the University Campus.
The bus will have a specially designed body featuring an aluminum structure and honeycomb sandwich paneling.
