Munich to test new e-car for taxi, car-sharing and goods transport services

Süddeutsche Zeitung

The city of Munich, home to carmaker BMW, will test a new multi-purpose (taxi, car-sharing, and goods transport) electric car developed by Adaptive City Mobility (ACM) as of autumn 2018, Andreas Schubert writes in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. The ACM car will have a range of about 300 kms. Empty batteries can be replaced with freshly charged ones at designated changing stations. The idea behind the project is to free up space and reduce traffic by giving people a very convenient and flexible option for car-sharing.
