The "wind car" will store its energy in 96 Kokam lithium polymer batteries in a pack tucked behind the seats. Because of their chemistry they will not need a lot of the monitoring wizardry the Tesla battery pack requires though it remains to be seen just how well the Kokams will perform in the enclosed and potentially hot space just ahead of the motors. If you're curious about what batteries and motors and such look like once installed in the car, you will be pleased to know that the rear deck lid is to be transparent. There were no estimates of range given so we'll just have to wait and see how far it can go, or for that matter, if it can go at all. We won't have to wait long though. The team hopes to have the car rolling some time in October. Though it is a one-off, Mr.Vince mentions that he would like to put out a limited edition of about 20 once the design proves itself worthy. In the mean time, he needs a name for this new contender and is seeking suggestions from the general public. Check out all the details and leave your naming ideas at Zerocarbonista (oh, and tell us in the comments, too). Thanks to Adam V. for the Tip!
