Put this one in the category of “I’ll believe it when I see it”, but Zenn Motor company claims it will launch an electric car powered by EEStor’s ultracapacitor in the fall of 2009.
The car called the cityZENN is claimed to have a top speed of 80 MPH and to be able to drive up to 250 miles on a single 5-minute charge.
EEStor is a secretive company claiming to have a breakthrough technology for energy storage in a specialized ultrcapacitor, rather than battery. They have not given interviews, but Lockheed-Martin has a contract with them (see post).
Thanks to Kent Beuchert for the tip.
