The secret behind theSRZero’s impressive performance lies in its brakes. With every tap ofthe brake pedal, the kinetic energy of stopping is harnessed andconverted into electricity, which is then transferred to the vehicle’slithium-ion batteries, in essence extending its range.
While theability of an electric vehicle (EV) to possess such capabilities isremarkable, the true beauty of this accomplishment is what it portendsfor the future. The meshing of an environmentally-friendly, efficient,emissions-free vehicle with the power and perseverance of agasoline-powered vehicle is almost certain to appeal to a much wideraudience than current EVs attract. And having more of such vehicles onthe road can only help in our global quest to reduce carbon emissions…in the Americas, Britain, and around the world.
