In addition, the engineers hope to gain information specifically about the Dodge Caravan Electric minivan, including: -- Active safety implications of electric vehicles on the nation's interstate highway system; -- Realistic performance numbers for the NiCad battery-equipped minivan; -- Durability of the unique electric components including the General Electric DC motor and controller, Goodyear electric vehicle tires and SAFT NiCad battery pack; -- Effects of heating/air conditioning on vehicle range and performance; -- Human factor issues with driving a virtually silent car; -- NiCad batteries (equipped on the test vehicle) compared to Nickel Iron batteries (equipped on about half the 1993 production models).
Electrosource CEO Benny Jay, who explained that the Horizon battery: -- can be recharged 50 percent in 8 minutes and 99 percent in half an hour and travel more than 100 miles between charges; -- can sustain more than 900 charge/discharge cycles, which according to independent tests, means the battery will last approximately 80,000 miles; -- has shown, in other testing, a significantly higher storage capacity to weight ratio than previous batteries and delivers more than 52 watt-hours per kilogram specific energy; -- can be manufactured for significantly less than other advanced batteries (such as nickel iron batteries).
