In the first of a new series checking out the funniest, coolest and, well electric vehicle YouTube we’re going back to 2004 and a quite amazing test.

Tochigi test in Japan is the venue, former F1 Ukyo Katayama the test The vehicle? The Eliica (Electric ion car), an extremely odd-looking but quite ingenious supercar eight-wheel-drive (yes, eight). out the video here and then on for more info…

The Eliica came from the of Professor Hiroshi Shimizu of University, Tokyo and was put together to that electric cars are of supercar power with reduced environmental impact. philosophy was bolted around the that, if we want electric to sell they need to not be spacious and comfortable but also than petrol and diesel We like the way he thinks.

Each of the eight wheels a 60 kW (80 hp) in-wheel electric motor, a whopping total output of 480 kW hp). The car’s platform four tracks of 80 batteries, take 10 hours of recharging empty to full charge.

At Katayama piloted the Eliica to (199mph) but it later reached a of 370kph (230 mph) on Nardò high speed

The test team also an acceleration test – Eliica Porsche 911. It seems given Dr. Ferdinand Porsche’s vehicles were electric.

the Lohner-Porsche had electric wheel hub which caused quite a at the 1900 World’s Fair in

The 911 gets away first, the Eliica somewhat hindered by its heft – 2,400kg is a lot of weight to get in But after 3.8 secs the Japanese matches the Porsche’s 92kph speed and then accelerates the distance.

Despite significant interest Mitsubishi quite late on in the the car was perhaps too impractical for production, many observers asking, happens to the motors if it drives water… do the short out?” EVs are not in the least bit troubled by water, but in the of the Eliica, which clearly has electric units, it may have a genuine problem. Then the cost of the vehicle and the buyer-repelling

Regardless of the cars commercial we have to salute Prof. Fresh thinking and a pioneering like his is truly inspiring. off.
