New Korean EV Mini-Car
30 May 2005
The EV1 is powered by a lithium-ion/polymer battery and 26-kW electric motor jointly developed by Korean battery companies EaglePitcher Kokam and VK, and the frame is produced by the French small car maker MC.
The large-format Kokam lithium-ion/polymer batteries offer an energy density of 364 Wh/l to 377 Wh/l, and a recharge lifetime of more than 500 cycles at 80% DOD.
GEO EV, which was set up in February, said the 600 kg mini-car can cover 250 kilometers (155 miles) at a speed of 120 km/h (75 mph) after the battery is fully charged. Charging takes three hours, according to the company.
The car will carry a price of 25 million won (US$25,000).
