Malcolm Bricklin Talks To Business Week
Malcolm Bricklin, the man who has been talked about quite a bit on China Car Times, has done an interview with Business Week magazine regarding his plans to design, create, and manufacturer an electric car in China that can do 100-150mpg.
Personally, we just think hes talking with BYD who showed an electric prototype vehicle at the Beijing Auto show last year – BYD is also a top maker of batteries in China, which compliments their car work quite nicely. Check out what they were offering in 2004:
We [BYD] have made a breakthrough in the quality and functions of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries for electric cars; a maximum speed of 125 kilometre/hour could be realized and every recharge could support another 400-kilometre drive, Chairman Wang Chuanfu said at a recent forum.
So, as far as electric cars go in China, BYD are leading the way and pounding the other car makers into the floor.
