To whom it may concern,
This is the secretariat of the Association for the Promotion of Electric Vehicles (APEV).
Thank you very much for your cooperation.
Since 2013, APEV has organized "EV Super Micro Mobility Design Contest for International Students" in conjunction with the Tokyo Motor Show.
From 2017 the target is not restricted to the super micro mobility but expanded to electric vehicles in general.
Furthermore, APEV would like to show the concept and scheme of the mobility society in the future and new approaches to the environment issues, with the creativity and planning ability for the designs.
This year's fourth event will be held as part of "Tokyo Motor Show Symposium" organized by Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (JAMA) .
Not only APEV members but also general people can participate, so we would like you to join this exciting event!
