Naijauto feels so proud to announce that we have just got recent updates indicating that the research team of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has set out to soon unveil a locally manufactured Zero-Emission car.
ZEVs (Zero-Emission vehicles) are the type of vehicles that produces absolutely no harmful exhaust gas from their onboard power source.
The exhaust gases produced by internal combustion petrol or diesel engine usually contains some very harmful air pollutants to human health and to the environment as well. Examples of such pollutants include; Oxides of Nitrogen, Lead, Ozone, Carbon Monoxide, Hydrocarbons, and particulates (soot).
The proposed unveiling of this Zero-Emission car was revealed by Chairman of Sub Committee (Abstract) – Prof. Dixon Akinleye at a Lagos news conference as he announces the 14th Research Conference & Fair of UNILAG.
