Miljøbil Grenland AS of Norway has launched a new electric car prototype powered by Electrovaya’s Lithium-ion SuperPolymer battery.
Earlier this year, Miljøbil Grenland signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Electrovaya to market the Electrovaya Maya 100 electric vehicle and for other EV development activities. (Earlier post.) The new prototype, however, is not the Maya. (More details to come.)
The adoption of clean electric vehicles has been hampered by the lack of advanced battery technology. Electrovaya’s battery technology triples the range of electric cars presently available in Europe, and we believe it is the breakthrough technology necessary to introduce zero-emission vehicles into Norway, Scandinavia and China.—Oddbjørn Solum, Managing Director of Miljøbil Grenland AS
The launch of the new prototype opened the “China, Environment and Energy Conference” in Langesund, Norway, attended by delegations from China, Scandinavia, World Bank and others.
Miljøbil Grenland is a professional fleet operator and marketer of Clean Zero Emission vehicles. Currently, Miljøbil Grenland offers three electric cars: the Renault Kangoo Electric, Peugeot 106 Electric and Peugeot Partner Electric.
The company is owned principally by Skagerak Energi, the regional utility company, Norsk Hydro, a $25 billion leading European oil, energy and light metal company with operations in 40 countries and Bellona, a major environmental foundation.
