“After the manufacture of bioethanol-fueled car is successful, we then developed to make your own electric car,” he said on Sunday (3/11/2012), on the sidelines of the exhibition of creative industries in the Campus UNS.

Electric cars are small and a capacity of about four people, because it is a city car. The car body using composite materials that are lighter, environmentally friendly and more powerful.
