Urban Concept: Battery Electric – DNF


With an overhaul of the electric system and a completely new drive train EVA started of well in the 2017 edition of the competition. The first test run ended after 9 laps leaving room for improvement but nevertheless a promising result. However, all official tries had something which wasn’t quite right about them leaving EVA empty handed.

Urban Concept: Battery Electric – DNF


This year EVA once again participated in the battery electric category for which -again- a new body was developed. Due to a lot of technical difficulties the new vehicle wasn’t able to set a score.
