Electric car 1969 found In a Swiss garageNovember 4, 2018
An electric car was found in one of the garages in Sweden, which was produced back in 1969.
Perhaps everyone now knows that Ilon Musk is far from the first person who came up with the idea of creating a fully electric car. No, of course, the founder of the American automobile company Tesla is well done, but …
Back in 1969, the management of the company Electric Fuel Propulsion Corporation decided to begin mass production of its own electric vehicle.
The 4-door model of the Renault brand was taken as the basis for its novelty. It turns out that in the last century, the guys from the Electric Fuel Propulsion Corporation were actively promoting cars using electric motors to move. As part of this popularization, many charging stations were built, which were located between Chicago and Detroit (USA).
As our colleagues managed to find out, this particular instance of the electric sedan, which was named the Mars II, was parked in a garage in Sweden in 1975. That is, he stood there for 43 years. As local experts say, who have already managed to investigate the discovery, the electric car is very well preserved.
According to official data, the fully electric Mars II sedan could cover a distance of 190 km on fully charged batteries, and its maximum speed was 100 km / h. In just 45 minutes, it was possible to fully charge these same batteries.
Well, to say, the creators of Mars II can only be commended – now not all electrical analogues can boast such capabilities.
Meanwhile, the founder of the American automobile company Tesla, Elon Musk, plans to launch an electric blade in the style of “Blade Runner”.
