8th Generation Battery Electric Prototype
The Prototype Battery Electric Car was driven by a lithium battery and battery management system hooked up to an E-Bike electric motor kit. The car received the first place award in its category every year since being built. It was the first car featuring the teardrop design that was reproduced for the also successful gasoline prototype car. Performance is measured by how many joules are used throughout a run and converted to MPG. This car was retired in 2015.
