Mooresville, N.C.-based Hybrid Technologies is planning to build two versions of the AXP supercar.
The first will be a gas-electric hybrid version in a bid to capture the Automotive X Prize. The second will be an all-electric car for sale to the public—and the company is promising a drivable prototype by September of 2008.
Hybrid Technologies is aiming for a 150- to 180-mi. range per charge from the all-electric model, while the lithium-ion-meets-gas hybrid needs to hit 220 mpg—minimum.
“We’re looking for this car basically to end up mainstream—not just built for a one-and-done,” says project development engineer Ron Cerven. “The X Prize car is going to be the purchasable—obviously a higher-end car, but there might be something else from us in the X Prize.”
