October 8, 2021, 9:29 pmMANAGUA, Oct 8 (Prensa Latina) With the integration of the first two electric-only cars, Nicaragua has begun the path of this type of mobility, Energy Minister Salvador Mansell noted today.
As part of the Latin American Electric Mobility Program, Nicaragua has acquired the first two Volkswagen vehicles, powered by this energy, which will make up the Enatrel fleet, thus contributing to environmental protection and reducing carbon emissions.
The idea is to demonstrate all the advantages of this means of transport in order to fairly quickly prepare for its subsequent use on a larger scale, said the main director of the state-owned company.
The cars acquired by Enatrel range from 400 to 500 kilometers, have a capacity of five passengers, air conditioning, a control panel and digital management, a radio and a steering system that allows a choice of three variants: economy, medium and top speed.
They also have sensors that show if there are vehicles in front or behind and put them at a safe distance.
It can reach speeds of 180-200 kilometers per hour, has 204 horsepower and is 100 percent silent.
Enatrel is working with Spain’s Melfosur to develop a solar photovoltaic pilot project, where more than 1,400 solar panels have been installed in its headquarters building.
