    100% Electric SUV Recharges In 10 Minutes



    This SUV by Phoenix Motorcars is an all-electric, zero-emissions vehicle. It can recharge in 10 minutes, and it has a range of a 100 miles (or more) per charge. It's fast too — it can achieve speeds of 95 MPH while carrying five passengers and a full payload. The vehicle uses the innovative NanoSafe batteries by Altairnano. NanoSafe batteries are made with a non-toxic compound, lithium titanate. This is similar to lithium-ion chemistry, but the use of titanium that prevents the fundamental cause of uncontrolled thermal runaway.

    As a teenager me and my pals got a one-up on these by making battery-powered gocarts. Some people in adjoining neighborhoods found their cars strangely reluctant to start, though. As I recall, my most ambitious project was a combination sail/battery cart.

    LOL, I wander if they suspected anything, seeing you driving around a go-kart with 15 batteries in the back.
