PRLog - Dec. 30, 2010 - HOLLYWOOD -- The Lightning GT blend of technologies and proven engineering is intended for class leading performance.The powertrain provide Lightning with the world's most advanced level of electrical performance. It features two 150Kw motors (400BHP) and a reduction gearbox within a common housing for an automatic limited slip differential function. This is highly superior to the conventional mechanical units of most sports cars.
Lightning GT EV
Since 2006, US Company Altairnano Inc. became established as a provider of ultra safe, high power battery using cutting-edge Nanotechnology. Nanosafe lithium titanate battery is recognized by far as the best available in the world today. Here are the advantages listed by Altairnano and Lightning:
SAFER - Our batteries use nano titanate materials instead of graphite which make them far more thermally stable - there are no toxics or heavy metals used in the batteries.
LONGER-LASTING - They have a life expectancy of 15 years of daily recharges, as opposed to the 3-5 year usable life of most other batteries, and 80% charge capacity can be retained after 15,000 charges.
FASTER CHARGE – Nanosafe batteries can be recharged in as little as 10 minutes from an off board DC Charger.
MORE POWERFUL – Power density is far superior to most competitors and is unaffected at extreme temperatures (+55C to -40C). Lithium Titanate batteries deliver superior power per unit weight and unit volume which is a great advantage for quick accelaration and steep climbing.
Altairnano shares got a boost today after it was announced that Canon will be the beneficial owner of 51% of the Company's outstanding common shares on a fully diluted basis, and is to approve a one-time option exchange program for the Company's employees. In previous press release the company has hinted to a Chinese affiliation for manufacturing plants, a move that would greatly reduce fabrication cost that had hampered a more widespread adoption of the Nanosafe batteries.
Under a separate conditional supply and technology license agreement, Altair has agreed to sell mega-battery units to Canon affiliate Zhuhai Yintong Energy Co., Ltd. Altairnano also agreed to provide them with an exclusive license to its technology to manufacture battery cells using its advanced lithium-titanate materials for worldwide distribution. This new development brings a halt to the speculations as to Altairnano’s survivability as Lightning battery supplyier.
Electric Vehicle EV second coming seems assured on the luxury front as well, now that Nissan made good on mass producing an affordable full electric vehicle for the common driver. Even with better princing expected due to Altairnano deal with Canon, rest assured the Lightning GT and GTS remain out of reach but for the rich and famous.
