German coachbuilder Karmann will introduce an all-new electric car
, codeveloped with utility company Oldenburg Energy Group (EWE) at the next Hannover auto fair. The model is called the E3 Limousine, but the vehicle is really a crossover
with classic lines and full interior versatility. According to EWE CEO Werner Brinker, "Electric cars are the future. This is the reason why we're teaming with Karmann, a company with more than one hundred years of car building experience, to develop and implement electric mobility solutions." The E3 promises a range of 150 km (90 miles) at a maximum speed of 140 km/h (85mph). Next October, both companies will have six running models, which will be used to test the energy management software.
