No. 780: An electric vehicle for less than 500,000 yen (September 26, 2013)

Electric Vehicle Development Technology Exhibition (EVEX) 2013 started yesterday in Tokyo for a three day period up to September 27. This is the fourth exhibition, and ultrasmall EVs and state-of-the-art quick chargers attract attention. Ultrasmall EVs are growing the presence as a means for short distance travel. Besides Nissan and Honda, venture companies exhibit their innovative products. Kyoden, a maker of printed circuit boards, exhibits its three-wheeler Rena X3.
