North Carolina-based Hybrid Technologies Ltd., in partnership with Korean battery manufacturer Kokam Ltd., announced Monday a sale to an undisclosed U.S. Fortune 500 corporation.
Hybrid said that the sale included both the company's Lithium Mini Cooper and a lithium version of the DaimlerChrysler Smart.

The electric Mini was previously delivered to the British Embassy in Mexico City (see picture at right). That version of the car was driven by about 350 lbs. of Lithium battery packs and a 146 volt/30 kw powerplant. The car has a top speed of over 90 mph, and a 100+ mile range.

The company also produces electric versions of the Chyrsler Crossfire and PT Cruiser. More info at the company's website.
