The battery pack is connected to a 110 kW (148 hp) electric motor, which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds.
e-Wolf has unveiled the revolutionary e-1 electric sports car.
Looking like shark on wheels, the e-1 rides on an ultra-light carbon fiber and aluminum chassis. Covered with carbon fiber body panels, the e-1 has total weight of just 450 kg (922 lbs).
Power comes from an advanced Li-Tec battery, which features 84 CERIO flat cells that measure 23 x 18 cm and weigh 1 kg (2.2 lbs) each. While that doesn't sound too impressive, the cells have a higher temperature tolerance and a greater energy storage capacity than traditional EV batteries.
The battery pack is connected to a 110 kW (148 hp) electric motor which enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in under 5 seconds, before topping out at an electronically limited 250 km/h (155 mph). The overall range is 300 km (186 miles) and the batteries are designed to last at least 10 years.
While e-Wolf plans to start selling the e-1 in early 2010, the 2011 e-2 appears much more interesting. Looking like a futuristic Lamborghini, the e-2 will be a four-wheel drive vehicle powered by four high-performance electric motors with direct couplings.
