Ugandan students produced electric buses

group of 25 Ugandan students from Makerere University’s College of Engineering, Art and Design have built Uganda’s first electric buses, the Kiira EV .

Initially designed in 2009, the fabricated car was taken for a public test drive last week.

 The core body and combustion system were designed and built locally.
The 12-meter-long bus is front-wheel drive and supported by an aluminum-alloy chassis that supports up to 200 kilograms of cargo weight. It is powered by lithium-ion batteries and the controls are run by a software system.



The bus can reach up to 200 kilometres per hour and runs for 80 kilometres before it needs to be recharged. Recharging requires a simple, 13 amp house current and takes about 4 hours to be fully charged. If a stronger power source is available, the battery can be fully recharged in about an hour.
