EEStor Ceramic Battery: Internal Combustion Replacement?
Seasoned scientists at EEStore say they've created a battery made of glass-
and aluminum-coated ceramics that could allow electric motors to completely
replace the internal combustion engine. The inventors, erstwhile Xerox PARC
and IBMmers, boast about the car's efficiency, saying it'll be so cheap
it'll be as if gas costs 45 cents per gallon, will drive 500 miles on nine
bucks' worth of electricity, and needs just five minutes to completely
recharge. Plus, the company's CEO says, "a four-passenger sedan will drive
like a Ferrari." Tall claims, EEStore.
Meanwhile, Feel Good Cars, those Canadian electric carmeisters whose ZENN
electric car is pictured above, vow to make this technology roadworthy by
2008. Oil companies, get out your checkbooks, but you'd better have some
phat cash 'cause these EEStore guys are well-financed. - Charlie White
