Revenge of the Electric Car

During the past couple of years the American driving public has witnessed how dependent they are of gasoline, and vulnerable to rapidly increasing energy prices. The battery pack is comprised of 5,088 lithium-ion cells for a cummulative 35kWhrs of energy storage. second li-ion powered tzero. A perfect example is the licensing of AC Propulsion ’s core electric drive technology to Tesla Motors for use in their beautiful Tesla Roadster.
