EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Sep 1, 2015) - SUNVAULT ENERGY INC. ("Sunvault") ("the Company") (SVLT) and the EDISON POWER COMPANY a Delaware Corporation, announced today that the two corporations are combining their knowledge, experience and technology to create a revolutionary Electric Supercar that will be powered by a Graphene Energy Storage device created by the companies. The car will also have a simple to use Graphene integrated hydrogen fuel cell to provide an extra level of confidence to offset any potential range anxiety. "The fuel cell will be powered by an on demand Hydrogen generation unit built into the car and will only require water" commented Dr. Robert Murray-Smith, Director of Sunvault Energy. "With our Energy Storage Device, reliability and peace of mind are wrapped in one design" added Gary Monaghan, CEO of Sunvault Energy.
Edison Power and SunVault Energy have agreed to build an Electric Supercar to showcase the Graphene Energy Storage System. The car will be named the "Edison Electron One" and will be built by the newly incorporated Edison Motor Cars. The companies will be collaborating with MK Technologies Ltd. (http://www.mktechnologies.com/) in the design and creation of this spectacular automobile.
The car's speed and economy will come from a uniquely designed power system of a electric drive unit for each wheel, this will give the Edison Electron One unequalled traction control of close to 1000 foot pounds of torque (1355 Newton meters), which is almost double the 560 foot pounds of a Ferrari 488 GTB, and a third more than that of the Tesla P85D which is rated at 713 foot pounds and slightly more than the Porsche 918 Spyder hybrid which is at 980 foot pounds (1328 Newton meter). The car is expected to be ready by the first quarter of 2016 and is expected to do zero to sixty in 2.0 to 2.2 seconds and be rechargeable in 5 minutes, subject to power availability at charging stations. The Company believes a whole industry will be created specifically for the charging of electric vehicles and that its storage system can facilitate this new industry. As far as distance, the "Edison Electron One" will perform to the same level of other competitive electric cars with the exception of being able to get much more of a charge in 5 minutes. The most important safety feature is that there will be no risk of fire or explosion associated to Lithium Ion batteries.
Edison Motor Cars will be making these Electric Supercar automobiles available to customers on a special order basis only. The Company will be gathering pre-order information to prioritize shipments to those interested auto enthusiasts. Pre-order information should include contact names, addresses, emails etc can be mailed to Edison Motor Cars c/o - Sunvault Energy Inc. - Suite 200 - 10703 - 181 Street N.W. Edmonton, Alta T5S 1N3 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"We are excited to be producing this truly revolutionary automobile that will put our Graphene Energy Storage Device front and centre on the world stage at the simple turn of a key", stated Sunvault Energy Chief Executive Officer Gary Monaghan. "The Electron One will not only be able to challenge any vehicle in performance, but will also be fully flexible, functional and convenient just as a fuel filled vehicle is today", he continued.
Sunvault Energy and Edison Power will be showcasing the Graphene Energy Storage Device together at The Battery Show 2015, at Novi, Detroit, Michigan; Taking place this September 15-17. This show is the premier showcase of the latest advanced battery technology.
