2008 Car Show..Cars this time not Models!!
The Denki Cube Concept from Nissan
It is a lithium-ion battery vehicle designed to showcase Nissan's green initiatives. The Cube's 1.3-liter electric motor is powered by laminated batteries that the Japanese automaker says provide twice the energy of traditional "cylindrical" batteries along with safer operation.
Dodge ZEO Concept
Dodge has designed its ZEO Concept as a sports wagon, featuring "2+2" seating that gives room for four passenger and is electric only and with a range of at least 250 miles. It also looks cool , proving that electric cars don't have to be boring.
The Subaru R1e
With fast-charge lithium ion battery technology, partial or quick charges do not reduce overall battery life as in standard lithium ion units. An AC permanent magnet synchronized motor is used and produces 40kW, allowing the R1e a top speed of 65 mph and a range of 50 miles. A "quick charge" takes just 15 minutes and gives an 80 percent charge, while a full charge can be completed in eight hours through a standard household electric outlet. This isn't brand new from Subaru but they are so confident in this car they are letting New York Power Authority use 2 of the vehicles for evaluation
