Energetique first 100% electric light commercial vehicle, maxEV, has been successfully launched together with RLE International at the 2010 Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle Show (LCVS) at Millbrook UK.
The Cenex LCVS has become a popular industry event since its inauguration three years ago in 2008, showcasing the innovative R&D of world leading automotive OEM’s, technology companies, supply chain, research organisations and universities.
The event gave attendees the opportunity to get behind the wheel of maxEV and experience first hand the latest and greatest in low carbon vehicle technology on a number of tracks within Millbrook Proving Ground.
This year’s event set out to prove that despite the economic turmoil of the past year, development and deployment of Low Carbon Vehicles is continuing to gather pace.
According to Energetique’s Chief Technical officer Norman Boessler who attended the event, maxEV was extremely well received, with the overall response being ‘I can’t believe it’s an electric vehicle!’
He also felt that the maxEV was well and truly up to the standard of the much larger car companies exhibiting at the event. “It’s fantastic to see Australian technology holding its own on an international stage like this,” he said.
