Alta Claims Its Redshift MX Has Battery With Highest Energy Density, Better Than Tesla Model S & X

July 3rd, 2017 | by Steve Hanley

The Alta Redshift MX electric motorcycle is designed to compete successfully against the best off-road bikes in the world. To do that, it needs a great battery that is both powerful and light in weight. Even though it begins with the same 18650 lithium ion battery cells as Tesla uses in its Model S and Model X cars, it packages them in a way that is unique to Alta. The result is an electric motorcycle battery with higher energy density than virtually any other battery in a production vehicle

This article isn't about proving that Tesla's ahead, though. It's actually a genuine, open-minded search for how long it'll take Big Auto to catch up to Tesla ... if it ever can. One widely held assumption is that large automakers can turn on a dime and crush Tesla at its own game "once the time is right." That's not true

Those Wild Electric Cars That Influenced Modern EVs & PHEVs

June 17th, 2017 | by Nicolas Zart
