NMSU students develop personal vehicle

NMSU personal vehicle

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (KRQE) – Some New Mexico State University students have built a machine that could be developed by General Motors.

The pace team was challenged to create a personal vehicle that could be used in urban settings.

Their design got them into the second round and earned them a trip to Turin, Italy where they’ll compete against other institutions.

The vehicle they designed is foldable, lightweight and can be charged at a station similar to those used for electric cars.

The students will now have to prove their product can be manufactured in a cost efficient way.

General Motors plans to manufacture the winning device beginning in 2016.
