Showed the draft electric vehicle collected from wasteJanuary 16, 2020
Eindhoven University of Technology students are preparing a sample of an electric vehicle made from recycled waste. The body is planned to be made of plastic, and the chassis made of polymers and recycled aluminum. All the necessary materials for the car are expected to be extracted from the waste that is extracted from the ocean.
The authors of the project under the name Luca believe that after the successful release of the electric vehicle from secondary polymers, it will be possible to attract industry attention to environmental issues and waste recycling.
Students will try to maximize the use of recyclables: Eindhoven University has already agreed with an Israeli startup UBQ to jointly develop the body using new materials and linen fiber.
According to the assumptions, the double city car will be equipped with two engines-wheels with a total capacity of 20 hp. The estimated autonomy of the new model has not yet been revealed: six small batteries will accumulate charge. The finished electric car is likely to be shown six months later, but for now, the Netherlands University has demonstrated computer renders.
It was also previously noted that the electric Roewe Ei6 sedan will debut at the April auto show in Beijing. The battery-powered version of the sedan will be an excellent illustration of the new concept of “smart design”.
