A new electric car has been developed which has a maximum speed of 60 mph, a driving range of 70-120 miles on a charge, and which can be recharged to 80% capacity in 46 minutes. The car's tri-polar, lead-cobalt battery and regenerative braking-system are described in detail. The average city or suburban resident could utilize such a vehicle for most of his driving requirements up to 70 miles a day, or under certain conditions, up to 230 miles a day.
