Nano Powered Cars In the last five years 25 European research institutions have joint forces to develop a rechargeable battery which uses lithium nano-particles.
Tune Up Your Electric Car! The research team has redesigned the batteries which are now also able to store energy during braking and releasing it quickly during acceleration.
Hydrogen: The Green Fuel Of The Future Together the engineers worked on the fuel cell propulsion system by upgrading the air supply, integrating a humidification system, redesigning the hydrogen supply line and developing a hydrogen sensor concept.
The Super Light Car The cars today - even in their basic configuration - are equipped with many features: air conditioning, electric windows and airbags for example. The price for improved comfort and safety on board has been an increase in weight.
