Oxford-based Liberty Electric Cars have proudly announced that their Electric E-Range, world’s first pure electric 4×4 has finally made its debut and that production versions of its electric Range Rover will go on sale at the end of this year.
If we look at the technical data we can see that Electric E-Range has a top speed of 85mph and accelerates from 0-60mph in about seven seconds, with a range of up to 200 miles on one charge.
This electric vehicle will also introduce so called “wireless charging” which means that instead of using conventional leads and plugs, the car is parked over an induction plate and charges automatically.
Liberty has also announced that battery can be charged in one to three hours from a fast charger or using the optional induction system. They were also very proud that at 75kw, the LEC battery pack is the largest ever installed in an electric car yet, but thanks to its advanced technology, weighs less than many lower capacity packs used in other electric vehicles.
Lifespan of the battery is by many regarded as one of the major drawbacks of electric cars, but that shouldn’t be an issue with Electric E-Range because Liberty claims that this electric car has lifespan for the battery of more than 13 years and 300,000 miles, a significantly larger number than any other electric vehicle.
Of course such technologically advanced electric car comes with the hefty price tag of around £150,000 ($225,000). But on the other hand you get to have all the power, luxury and prestige that comes with the Range Rover without doing damage to environment.
