Energhia / Electric car


Energhia is a redesign of the VW Karmann Ghia. It operates with lithium nano-titanate batteries. They can be loaded by a high voltage cable within ten minutes. Alternatively the battery can be replaced in the rear. The surface area is coated with photovoltaics foil. It feeds solar power back into the batteries of the two seater. Two LED lamellas provide light. Emergency backup generators assure the energy supply for the four wheel hub engines until the arrival at the next loading station. The range is about 450km.
