Mindset Six50 Electric Car Blends Gas, Li-Ion and Solar

New auto industry start-up Mindset, has announced plans to release a gasoline-electric hybrid next year. The hybrid 2+2-seater, called the Six50, contains a built-in Li-Ion battery, with a range of 100km (62 miles) between charges, rising to 800km (496 miles) when the two-cylinder gasoline motor also kicks in as a generator as required. Battery charging is further assisted by integrated roof-top solar panels.

The car’s name hints at the target weight of 650kg (1430 lbs). However, according to buy viagra canada recent reports, the prototype, made with a plastic body around an aluminum frame, tips the scales at a still fairly lightweight 800kg. According to Mindset, this helps the car to achieve fairly respectable levels of performance. The 70kw (95hp) motor should enable speeds of up to 140km/h (75mph) and acceleration from 0-100km/h in under six seconds.

The company was established by Marat Gunak, former head of design at Volkswagen (who is also gearing up with electric cars), with backing from Swiss billionaire Lorenzo Schmid. According to Gunak, most cars are currently “too big, too heavy, too expensive,” a trend that he hopes to help overturn with the female viagra pills Six50.

On first impressions, it seems that he might have succeeded in developing a small, lightweight car. However, many potential buyers will need to be persuaded that the price, currently estimated at €31,000 (about $47,900) - and likely to reach nearer €50,000 (about $77,200) by the time the Six50 hits the market - is not "too expensive." For an average buyer, that's pretty darn expensive.

I see this huckster made up for the small size by setting an exorbiotant price. Makes even the crappy EV-1 look relatively affordable.

In calculating the best way to use cialis $ price, I believe you've used the pound sterling equivalent, rather than the euro. 31,000 euros = 48,000 dollars

True, a $50,000 car isn't cheap, but if the car has a luxurious fit and finish, it might appeal to upper middle-class buyers, particularly empty-nesters downsizing from SUVs...

In any case, the more variety and choice on the market in terms of hybrid/battery/solar car technology, the better! If one of the technologies really proves practical and appealing, you can bet the we recommend cheepest cialis major car companies will quickly roll out versions of their own. (Just as the success and media praise of mexico cialis no prescription the Prius has led to a wave of hybrid gas-electric cars recently.)

Electric car developers need to realize they will recover investment costs and make tremendous profits much quicker by selling their vehicles at a price affordable by most people.

They might as well keep it because few if any can or will afford that. Get real developers. Under $20,000 US dollars is viagra soft gel where the market is. If you can't get there----stay out of the way.
