muc017 is our vehicle for the 2017 season

After designing and building of six successfull prototypes, in 2017 TUfast Eco Team developed for the first time an Urban Concept – muc017. It participated at the EducEco in Valenciennes (France) in Mai 2017 and – again in Mai 2017 – at the Shell Eco Marathon Europe in London (Great Britain).

TUfast Eco’s first Urban Concept is one step towards highly efficient, roadworthy electric vehicles. In addition to its efficiency, muc017 also features lighting, weather resistance, comfortable sitting position and a baggage compartment.
