The Chevy Volt
plug-in electric goes 40 miles on battery alone, yet can go up to 350 miles. Top speed 100mph. How can you top that?
How about an 80 miles on battery, 500 miles total, and a top speed of 150mph and 0-60 in 3.9 seconds? The gasoline engine is a turbine (also used in jet engines). The Capstone CMT380
Built as a demonstration vehicle
to show off its turbine engine, it got so much interest that Capstone has begun plans for limited production
of the vehicle.
