ACar Electric Car For Rural Roads In Africa




Munich, Germany – The Technical University of Munich, Germany, recently unveiled an electric vehicle model called aCar , designed specifically for the conditions and uses of rural areas of Africa, designed to withstand rugged terrain, a four-wheel drive capable of handling dirt roads and off-road driving.

Most of the electric cars, with some exceptions, are sensitive and expensive vehicles designed for paved streets and are built from rich people, making them unsuitable for rural areas of Africa, where most of the roads far from the cities are not paved at all, making any electric vehicle out of reach Hand in that area.

The ACar uses an electric motor that ensures full torque, with some limitations of only 80 km. However, it is perfectly suitable for removing obstacles due to full torque, reliability, And goods.

ACar has completed the real tests in Ghana in July and is expected to start its actual production in Africa at a price of around $ 11950.

The price seems reasonable compared to the rest of the electric vehicles that will not be fully suited to the nature of Africa, but the ACar is specifically designed to meet the needs of the population and drive the economy in rural areas, which scientists have done at Munich Technical University and partners over four years.

The final model was unveiled to the public at IAA in Frankfurt, Germany, on September 12-15, 2017, with mobility becoming an essential part of our daily lives, such as moving from place to place and transporting goods.

The car has a 20KW battery that can be fully charged from a standard 220V home wall socket within 7 hours. The solar modules on the back of the ACar are also collecting energy throughout the day. Scientists have produced the first model in May 2016, They conducted initial tests in Germany.

“We have developed through ACar the concept of mobility that can solve these problems,” said Markus Lincamp, head of automotive technology for TUM. “ACar is a vehicle capable of driving off-road in rural Africa, Standard with other uses such as water treatment. ”
