Successful demonstation of an electric Fiat Doblo in Norway

AeroVironment, Altair Nanotechnologies (Altairnano), Micro-Vett and Go Green have successfully demonstrated the All-Electric Fiat Doblo to government officials and potential commercial customers in Oslo, Norway.

On 02 October 2007, half-way through an ongoing 60-day demonstration, the Micro-Vett Fiat Doblo, a regular size 5-seat station wagon vehicle, powered by a custom 18 kWh Altairnano high performance NanoSafe® battery pack, traveled 300 kilometers in an urban delivery circuit. The custom battery pack was fully recharged in less than ten minutes a total of three times using AeroViroments’ high voltage, 125kW rated, rapid charging system. The vehicle will be driven an estimated total of 7,500 kilometers during the 60-day demonstration period, which translates to an annual equivalent use of 45,000 kilometers.

The Fiat Doblo is designed both as a commercial medium-duty transport vehicle, as well as a regular size family car. Micro-Vett has been converting standard vehicles to electric drive for the past 20 years, and today, they have a wide range of passenger and utility vehicles available for sale. Go Green expects to ship up to 20 Micro-Vett vehicles with Altairnano’s 18 kWh NanoSafe® battery packs to customers in the next several months, and an additional 250 vehicles are planned for shipment in 2008. Altairnano offers a range of NanoSafe® battery packs for all-electric vehicles requiring from 10 to 35 kWh of energy storage.
