Electric Car Covers Over 1,000 Km on a Single Charge, Probably Takes a Year to Charge

by Lambert Varias

The civic group Japan EV Club is probably the only group of its kind, because it has taken to shattering its own records. Last month, the electric vehicle enthusiasts drove an electric version of the Daihatsu Mira for 345 mi on a single charge. One month later, the group nearly doubles their record, driving 623 miles using the same car model (I’m not sure if it’s the exact same car though).

The record-breaking car and the one before it were both powered by a Sanyo Lithium-ion battery, which is said to be made up of 8,320 cylindrical lithium-ion batteries.

17 members of the Japan EV Club took turns in driving the modified Mira, for a total of 27 and a half environmentally-friendly hours, going at an average of 40 km/h (approx. 25 mi/h). Seriously though: how long does it take to fully charge that car?!

    I want that battery pack for my iPhone 3GS, especially when I’m on a 3G network.

      No, you don’t want that type of battery pack for your phone, its primary usage would probably be for high amp applications like Cars.

      It would also make your iPhone about the size of the 90’s cell phone bricks.

      What you want is something that will be able to boost your iPhone’s battery without vastly increasing the size and weight. I’d start looking for a battery booster.

    Why only 25mph? Would going faster drain the battery quicker? That is a pretty important distinction…
