  • Description

    The latest prototype vehicle powered by storage batteries made its public debut in Munich yesterday (February 25). Made by Messerschmitt-Boelkow-Blohm. the vehicle has taken a year to develop. In all, seven of the truck-type vehicles will be made and extensively tested during this year.

    Life of the batteries is said to be in the region of between three and four years with up to 2.000 recharges possible. Top speed of the plastic-bodied vehicle is 50 m.p.h. (80 KPH).

    In recent years several of the large motor manufacture companies have experimented and explored the potential of battery powered vehicles. This appears to be the latest one and a serious contender for the commercial application of such machines.
