|Mitsubishi FTO-EV Electronic Vehicle Prototype|
Lithium ion electric battery development for electric automobile, and Electric Vehicle (EV) for use within the 24 hour 2000km (worldwide beginning) challenge.
NEWS FLASH: Mitsubishi FTO-EV Sets New World Record
December 14, 1999:
Collectively, in order to prove the efficiency of the same electric battery of new development, December 19th (day) from 20 days (month) applying coming, you challenge to the boosting charge of the electric automobile and the world record of 24 hour travel distance which repeatedly does high-speed travelling.
As for world record of 24 hour travel distance of former electric automobile 1700 km (1996 years: Saturn ECV prototype) it is unofficial, but commemorating 2000 years coming, new the Mitsubishi FTO which loads the electric battery which was developed - ECV (prototype) it depends, 24 hour 2000km travelling are designated as goal.
Until recently, as for the electric automobile because time bets on charge, operating time of 1 day, work distance the range of one charge travelling with use made aim (the 150km / day), shortening and one charge travel distance in charge time (battery capacity) improvement was required. The manganese lithium ion electric battery which this time was developed advanced largely 65% shortening and one charge travel distance 10% being something which succeeds in improving, destined for the availability improvement of the electric automobile vis-a-vis the nickel hydrogen electric battery, charge time.
* The electric battery for the electric automobile in the electric automobile of course thing, the hybrid electric automobile which improves the fuel economy quality where the GDI is superior furthermore (the GDI - the HEV) is the indispensable element, you use the technology of the manganese lithium ion electric battery which this time was developed, for the hybrid electric automobile which the output with acceleration and the charge with deceleration continue you keep assuring also the utilization of the electric battery.
