Unmanned Electric Bus, EcoMobility Expo, a look at electric vehicles and what they mean for Taiwan

The dawn of electric powered transport couldn’t come soon enough especially for Taiwan and it’s over crowded cities that are dependent on oil for 100’s of thousands of smog producing engines. Taiwan and world’s future depends on the ability to adopt Electric Vehicle Industries to their respective economies and cultures. Not only will the EV industry bring more jobs and better opportunities for more people but it will also create safer roads and better environments for the people across the island and globally.

This year the hype is around the first ever driverless bus in the world to be unveiled at the 3rd EcoMobility World Festival in Kaohsiung, Taiwan this year. “The EcoMobility World Congress 2017″  (  生態交通全球盛典 )  will bring together local representatives and transportation experts from the public and private sectors to discuss how to make sustainable transport livable, shared and intelligent.


Local governments, non-governmental organizations, educational institutions, businesses, media and civil society are invited to join the Congress and connect, exchange, showcase, report and learn.”

All of humanity’s hopes and dreams now depend on a better economy created in The EV industry. For all the nations that join to create a more sustainable future there is a promise of future proof societies. An Economy that is more specialized and provides more jobs to people around the island can demonstrate to the world a future proofed society that is ready to finally end our dependence on oil for transportation.
Three key meetings have already taken place in Kaohsiung; the Young Professionals meeting explored career paths for youth and recent graduates, there were also Cultural and technical tours for business and industry insiders and finally a global congress met for the Transformative Urban Mobility Initiative (TUMI).

A great honor falls to the city of Kaohsiung to host the EcoMobility World Congress 2017 this year. The first congress met in Suwan, South Korea in 2013 and the second was held in Johannesburg in South Africa in 2015. The goal of each congress is to introduce the general public to a safer more reliable mode of transport that should reduce traffic and pollution for over crowded cities like the ones found in Taiwan and other places around the world.

There will be more than just meetings and seminars at this bi-yearly event, You will also learn what living in “Eco-Mode” is. At the EcoMobility World Expo visitors will have a chance to explore the future of transportation up close and personal. The first congress introduced the ‘One neighborhood, one month, no cars’ model that asks citizens to abandon all oil-burning engines and accept a new way of life and living. With each progressive EcoMobility Congress and EcoMobility World Expo entire communities of people have shown that EVs can be more cost effective, convenient, and even bring communities closer together.

“The Festival will enable the city to free valuable urban space from car traffic by opening the streets of the Hamasen neighbourhood in Kaohsiung exclusively for ecomobile modes of transport such as walking, cycling, public transport, shared vehicles and light electric vehicles.”

Once there you will be able to imagine life without foul pollution filling your lungs and other  senses, you’ll learn how life with EVs has a more manageable pace, and most of all you’ll get to experience a closer harmony with the natural world using modern technology. If you’re looking for a glimpse into the future of mankind, you’ll be able to see it on display in Kaohsiung until October 31st!
