eBox Debuts at AltCar Expo in Santa Monica


The eBox from AC Propulsion makes its public debut today at the AltCar Expo in Santa Monica. The eBox is an all electric car - not a hybrid - that uses Li Ion batteries to achieve effortless performance and a range of up to 180 miles, without a drop of petroleum. With the first eBox deliveries scheduled in January, AC Propulsion will pry the lid off the EV coffin - the electric car is not dead after all.

The eBox is a full-function electric car. Whether cruising on a high-speed freeway or slogging through gridlock, the eBox transports its occupants for their daily business in serene comfort, with smooth acceleration, amazing regenerative braking, and informative instrumentation. Recharging is as close as the nearest electric outlet because the eBox can plug in anywhere.

The eBox is a full-function car. It seats five and has one of the roomiest back seats in the business. Fold the rear seat and the eBox takes a huge haul. With air conditioning, power steering, power windows, power mirrors and remote door locks, the eBox matches comfort and convenience with any car.

And it adds one convenience no conventional car can match - refueling at home. Plug it in and it charges while you sleep. In the morning, the tank - a 35 kWh Li Ion battery - is full, with more than enough juice for a typical day's driving. Say goodbye to your friendly neighborhood dealer of petroleum fuels, the eBox never touches the stuff.

The eBox benefits from 15 years of electric vehicle development at AC Propulsion. It represents the state of the electric car art, 2007. AC Propulsion has changed the perception, and the reality, of the electric car with innovations such as light and powerful electric motors, maximized regenerative brakes, integrated high-power chargers, bi-directional grid connections that let the car supply AC power, and high-performance Li Ion traction batteries assembled from commercial cells. This portfolio of innovation has inspired the electric vehicle creations of Venturi Automobile in Monaco, Courr
