Nissan avoids the dreaded hybrid, the ZEOD RC operates on battery and fuel power. ZEOD features regenerative charging,” said Kulach. vehicle is lightweight and efficient, so a number of laps can be run in fuel and then the final lap range be extended under pure power.”

If it all sounds highly experimental, racetracks have historically breeding grounds for new automotive and some of the vehicles that are technically still in development. The holdup in EV racing now is simply the imposed by battery technology. In a race competition, such as racing, a battery collects on turns and when braking.

That energy advantage not exist on an oval-shaped track, the of track used by many such as NASCAR, according to EV John E. Waters.

“When you to an oval course, when you speeds up to 250 miles per hour, it a tremendous amount of force and drain on the minimal energy of batteries as they exist said Waters, who helped a battery pack system for Motors electric car, the EV1 in the and later founded Bright inventors of the 100-miles-per-gallon, plug-in electric commercial vehicle.
