Our vehicle of the season 2017


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 Car 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.
