Quimera, Icon, ETH Zürich, Lithium-sulfur.
All-electric race cars: When Spanish Quimera presented their AEGT Evo2 electric racer last year, they created quite a stir in the world of motor sports. Quimera keeps moving and now published first renderings of its AEGF which is said to come with “Formula 1 specifications.”
Dream big and electric: Icon has come up with the Helios, a rather iconic looking road cruiser which the company seeks to commission. Founder Jon Ward is hoping for Elon Musk to share his Model X platform with him while designer Ralph Lauren would be Ward’s favoured first customer.
Swiss win: The Formula Student Electric team from ETH Zürich took the first place at the recent competition at Hockenheim. Second-best was the team of German Stuttgart Uni leaving the Dutch three-time winner Delft University of Technology behind.
More Li-sulfur: Researchers at the University of Texas say they increased the capacity of lithium-sulfur batteries by using titanium disulfide and sulfur for the cathode. Meanwhile, British OXIS Energy and Multi Source Power Technologies (MSP) will jointly develop Li-sulfur batteries for ships and boats and aim to launch by spring 2015.
