Samsung & Seeo, Electrovaya, Predator´s.

Samsung leads a 17 million dollars investment in the Californian start-up Seeo that claims to have developed a lithium-ion battery that’s less flammable and more efficient than traditional batteries as it uses a solid polymer as the electrolyte. Seeo batteries are currently said to reach an energy density of 350 Wh/kg and might be able to reach 400 Wh/kg next year.

Electric ferry running strong: Electrovaya said that its KF Hisarøy electric cable ferry has been sailing in Norway for over one year and completed more than 4,000 trips, with flawless operation. It serves on up to ten round-trips daily between the mainland and the Hisarøy Island, carrying up to 49 passengers and 6 cars. It runs on a 100 KWh battery system based on Electrovaya’s SuperPolymer 2.0 technology.

Crowdfunded e-racer: Predator´s has started a campaign on Indiegogo asking for money to build a street-legal racing car. The F1-style PC010 ST will come with either hybrid or electric drive and is supposed to have a price of 20,000 dollars – if you are ready to put it together yourself.
