uWind is a lightweight and small suspended electric vehicle with 2 seats. The EV is electric traction driven being powered from the live rail or by onboard energy storage unit, and moves on super light uSky rail overpasses.
Due to its utmost functional design, simplicity and low manufacture cost along with minimum energy consumption, uWind is one of the most affordable solutions to arrange the traffic in sparsely populated and remote areas, as well as in areas with harsh terrain.
The modular make of uWind allows not only to easily personalize the vehicle in a wide range of configurations, but to offer it with several functional modules, too – freight, freight-and-passenger, passenger. That said, the EV has only one traction module thus considerably increasing the cost-effectiveness of the system for small, but regular and strategically important cargo and passenger traffic.
