wind powered eco lotus: ecotricity

Ecotricity, an electric company known for harnessing nature and developing systems that provide green and affordable electricity to all, will develop a wind-powered car-- a retrofitted version of the Lotus Exige. It will have a transparent trunk, so that its inner workings can be seen by all.

The company’s founder, Dale Vince, states that he and his team are currently working to transform a Lotus Exige couple with no aspect of the car going untouched. The car would contain 96 batteries and it is expected that the car would have a top speed of over 100 mph and would be able to accelerate from standstill to 62 mph in about four seconds. The first prototype of the car is expected to be unveiled within the next few months with mass production to follow.
