Nanobattery Fiat driven 300km in one day

Abstract:
A Micro-Vett Fiat DoblÚ, a regular size 5-seat station wagon, powered by a custom 18kWh Altairnano lithium-ion NanoSafe battery pack, traveled 300 kilometers (186 miles) in one day in an urban delivery circuit. The custom battery pack was fully recharged in less than ten minutes a total of three times using AeroViroments' high voltage, 125kW rated, rapid charging system.

The demonstration came halfway through an ongoing 60-day demonstration of the 5-seat electric vehicle by AeroVironment; Altair Nanotechnologies; Micro-Vett, and Go Green Holding AS to government officials and potential commercial customers in Oslo, Norway.
