Safe to say, this ain’t your grandfather’s battery-powered vehicle…..
The folks at gizmag recently featured an electric vehicle that’s looking to push the boundaries on what’s possible for battery-powered cars. With the unveiling of it’s “e-2” EV prototype, the German based company e-Wolf is looking to combine high performance and eco-consciousness like few others in the auto industry.
“Boasting an expected acceleration of 0-60mph in under four seconds, e-Wolf is set to deliver an Italian-inspired electric “supercar” that puts the mean in green. Using Li-Tec flat battery cell technology, each of the 84 cells would weigh 1kg and measure 23cm x 18cm. Distance on a single charge is expected to be around 186 miles, with a top-up recharge taking approximately thirty minutes. The two seater e-2 will have a top speed limited electronically to 155mph.”
It’s no secret that hybrid and all-electric vehicles are expected to continue their growth in popularity in the years ahead. With governments and private enterprises dumping millions of dollars into the development of cleaner, more efficient and higher performing automobiles; it’s likely that improvements will continue to be made in all aspects of the vehicles.
The e-Wolf is slated to be launched in 2011.
