Lithium Ion Hyundai Elantra! - Thursday, November 1st, 2007
Like the Chevy Volt, Hyundai announced future plans build a hybrid version of the Elantra using lithium batteries. The vehicle should be available no earlier than 2010.
Lithium batteries have yet to be used in hybrid vehicles for safety and cost reasons, however Hyundai has partnered with LG Electronics to find a cost effective way to get the price of lithium ion batteries down for use in next-gen hybrids and also to find a way to make them safer. Should this happen there will be a definite increase in fuel efficiency in today’s hybrid vehicles.
This website will help you to see that there are
many other options available to us as consumers to satisfy our
transportation needs and desires. We do not have to think that the
options at our disposal are all going to be ugly, and/or box like.
Actually that is about as far from the truth as you can get.
Manufacturer's like General Motors, with their Chevrolet, and Saturn
branches. Also Toyota, and Honda, as well as BMW, Lexus, Ford,
Chrysler, SSC, Hyundai and many others have jumped into the eco car
reality. Some companies by choice to help make our world a better
and greener place to live. A place that has less emissions, or even
better no emissions from the vehicles that we choose to drive.
