Fancy an electric vehicle that has a range which surpasses that of most petrol-based vehicles? Well, what was once the stuff of dreams is now a reality with TGMY turning the Mitsuhoka Himiko Mazda roadster into an electric vehicle that has a 550km range on a single charge. How did they manage to do so while pushing aside the Chevy Volt with impunity? That’s simple, just use 168 lithium polymer cells that quadruple the normal amount of cells which are normally found in such vehicles. Of course, the mileage greatly varies on the driving style employed, and it is safe to assume that real world driving would see a drastic drop in range, although anything that is more than 250km is still impressive.
