E-Range: World's First Fully Electric 4x4

The world's first pure electric 4x4 has completed extensive testing by Oxford-based Liberty Electric Cars. Liberty has been working on the electric E-Range project for the past two years.

Liberty says that the E-Range has a top speed of 85mph and accelerates from 0-60mph in about seven seconds, with a range of up to 200 miles on a single charge.

The E-Range is also first to market with wireless charging. Rather than use conventional leads and plugs to recharge the battery, the E-Range simply needs to park over an induction plate for one to three hours.

The E-Range's 75kw LEC battery pack is the largest ever installed in an electric car yet it employs industry leading lightweight technologies.

Liberty's patented high-density Lithium Polymer batteries are also expected to have a lifespan of 13 years or 300,000 miles, this is much longer than any EV battery currently being produced.
