Bright Automotive - Electric Hybrid Car

Recommended Posts

Guest Don Marshall

Indiana-based Bright Automotive is building an economic 100-mpg, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. The company's goal is to reinvigorate the American transportation sector through innovative, high volume automotive solutions based on economics, fuel efficiency, superior design and lightweight

materials. Bright Automotive has assembled a team of seasoned automotive executives who pioneered hybrid and electric vehicles for over 15 years with major automakers.

 

"Michael is an automotive expert, an innovator, and an insightful business strategist," said Bright Automotive CEO and President John Waters. "We've built our company around people such as Michael who have tremendous industry insight and also have the vision to bring dramatic change to the transportation sector. With his skills and experience added to our team, Bright Automotive is even better positioned to meet our ambitious goals."

 

In January 2008, Bright Automotive launched from Colorado-based Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) with the goal of building on the work of a consortium of organizations, including Alcoa, Google.org, Johnson Controls and the Turner Foundation. Together we mapped an automotive solution to tackle the challenges of our economy, air pollution and diminishing oil supplies.

 

Our vehicle provides superior fuel-efficient performance by operating in all-electric mode for the first 30 miles before switching to hybrid mode for a full range of 400 miles. To achieve these groundbreaking results, our designers utilize platform efficiency, which incorporates lightweight materials, advanced aerodynamics and low-rolling resistance tires to use less energy. With a lower cost of ownership than the competition, our vehicles offer outstanding economic solutions for our customers.

 

Iconic Design

You will be able to spot a Bright Automotive vehicle on the road—its sleek aerodynamic lines not only maximize fuel efficiency but also make it attractive and unique. We feel that we are setting a design precedent in the automotive industry. The world can judge for itself when we reveal the vehicle in May.

The new car sounds very promising. The question is with today's economy how many people will be able to afford such a car? We all understand that there is a lot of time, and money put into research and development for such a car.

From my understanding of electric cars? Is that the electrochemical cell have to be changed every 3 years, and from my understanding the electrochemical cell aren't cheap either.
