The things you find on the Internet. FFOG (ever heard of them?) reports that the Iran has an electric vehicle that goes 300 kilometers (186 miles), “with the recharging battery in only six minutes.“
It turns out to be an Opel Tigra conversion. That should make the U.S. government happy. And what’s with the lightning-fast recharge? Charged from a conventional 220v outlet will take the usual six hours to charge fully. For the six minute recharge, you need to take your car to what they call an “Intelligent Charging Station.”
It’s a shed where they swap near empty batteries with charged ones. Wait until Project Better Place gets wind of that. Then Iran will have problems with the U.S. and Israel. But wait: They already have problems.
