Abstract : The EVA Current Fare Station Wagon, an electric vehicle, was tested at MERADCOM as part of a Department of Energy project to characterize the state-of-the-art of electric vehicles. The current Fare Wagon was manufactured in Cleveland, Ohio by Electric Vehicle Associates' Incorporated. It is powered by 22 6-V lead-acid batteries driving a 30-hp d.c. series motor through an SCR controller. The motor drives the rear wheels through a manually operated 4-speed transmission. Regenerative braking was provided. (Author)
