An electric super car powered by a graphene hydrogen fuel cell is under development. The high performance graphene car is supposed to be better performing than a Ferrari. The car is called the Edison Electron One.
The project is the result of the joint venture between Sunvault Energy (SVLT-OTC:BB) and the Edison Power Company a Delaware Corporation. The partnership spawns the Edison Motor Cars Corporation. They will be collaborating with MK Technologies Ltd. to facilitate the design and conception of this amazing super car.
Edison Motors reports that Edison Electron One will be unveiled in the first quarter of 2016. The vehicle will contain an electric drive unit functioning at each wheel. This is expected to enable the vehicle with 1,355 Newton meters of torque. This is just about double that of the Ferrari 488 GTB and a third more than Elon Musk’s Tesla P85D.
The company states that the purpose of the project is to showcase their graphene-integrated hydrogen fuel cell technology.
“The fuel cell will be powered by an on-demand hydrogen generation unit built into the car and will only require water,” said Robert Murray-Smith, Director of Sunvault Energy.
Edison Electron One accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just about two seconds. Amazingly the battery is reported to be rechargeable in five minutes. Sunvault Energy believes a new industry will be spawned for charging of electric vehicles. The company believes that its graphene based storage system can accommodate this new industry.
