LiV Rush – All Electric Sports Car
Posted by keelynet on April 3, 2009
This is a slick new number in the electric car arena, still a bit pricey and I think they need more utilitarian versions such as pickups and SUV models, but that will come in time.
“EV Innovations, a Las Vegas manufacturer of plug-in, battery powered vehicles, has developed the LiV Rush, an all-electric lithium battery powered sports car capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds. The LiV Rush is able to travel over 150 miles without recharging and is capable of reaching speeds up to 110 mph. With zero emissions, quick acceleration, and edgy design appeal, combined with the capability for 2500+ recharges of its battery, the LiV Rush is a high performance, green option. The LiV Electric “engine” is a 3-phase brushless A/C motor with a 78 kW peak. It is mounted mid-cabin with the controller placed for handling and safety. LiV’s batteries are 10 maintenance free lithium ion packs weighing a total of 640 pounds; they include Hybrid Technologies’ proprietary battery management system and heater.” – Source
