Altair Nanotechnologies CEO to Speak at FiRe Conference; Company to Demonstrate Three Electric Vehicles

RENO, NV | Posted on May 8th, 2007

During the conference, Altairnano will exhibit three full-size electric vehicles: a sport utility vehicle and two sport utility trucks, manufactured by its partner, Phoenix Motorcars, Inc. All three vehicles carry up to five adults, have a maximum speed of 100 miles per hour, can travel 130 miles on one charge, and can be fully recharged in 10 minutes with sufficient electric transmission capacity. Altairnano will provide opportunities for FiRe attendees to go for a test ride in a Phoenix electric vehicle.

On Thursday, May 24, Dr. Gotcher will speak on two FiRe panels: 1) FiReStarters I, at 8:30 a.m., a discussion of the nanotechnology industry and what it means for manufacturers, investors and lawmakers: and 2) starting at 3:30 p.m., Building The Cars of Tomorrow, a substantive discussion of the state of the electric vehicle market, on which Dr. Gotcher will be joined by Martin Eberhard, CEO of Tesla Motors, Vijay Vaitheeswaran, a journalist from The Economist, and Nate Lewis of Caltech.

The FiRe conference exposes senior executives, investors and policymakers to emerging trends in technology, science, medicine, finance and law. For more information:
