According to foreign media reports, the British company electric assisted vehicles (EAV) has attracted many people’s attention in the past year because it provides an interesting electric assisted four-wheel vehicle for urban environment. Although up to now, the company’s business is mainly focused on freight transportation, it is now expanding its business to passenger cars. The company launched the EAV taxi, which is designed to carry passengers in the crowded city center. < / P > < p > EAV’s urban freight car series uses pedal assisted electric drive platform to achieve zero emission travel. Recently, the series has also been involved in refrigerated warehouses and flat-panel devices like the back of pickup trucks. < / P > < p > the newly released EAV taxi also uses pedal assist technology, which is installed on the same chassis, but is designed to accommodate two passengers. It is equipped with full suspension and side doors, with memory foam seats inside and a video display to track the journey information. < / P > < p > the luggage compartment is under the seat, and passengers can put it in from the back or side. At the same time, the cabin has heating and cooling functions to keep the internal temperature at a comfortable level. < / P > < p > the whole vehicle is 2.7m long, 2m high and 1m wide, and the maximum speed provided by the pedal assist system is 25km / h. EAV thinks this kind of transportation is very suitable for short distance travel in cities like London. The company points out that in London, about 200000 taxis are used every day, usually less than five miles (eight kilometers), and 65% of them can carry one passenger. < / P > < p > EAV believes that the taxis they build can not only alleviate congestion, but also have a great positive impact on air quality and energy use, even compared with larger and heavier electric vehicles and trucks. “We are 90% lighter than any hybrid or electric vehicle,” said Nigel Gordon Stewart, executive chairman of EAV. “If we replace an Uber hybrid with an EAV taxi, we can reduce CO2 emissions by about 9.2 tons a year. Our energy use is only a fraction of that of an electric taxi. We don’t need the infrastructure to charge the battery, we just need a common plug and socket. ” Didi Qingju bicycle has entered 150 cities
