Only last month did we talk about Sanyo issuing a press release proclaiming that one of its lithium-ion battery systems helped Mira EV run a distance of 555.6 km on a single recharge. The trial run conducted from Tokyo to Osaka used 8320 cylindrical lithium-ion batteries, normally used in the laptops.
The journey was registered as the longest ever made in Guinness World records. Competing against its own self in pursuit of energy efficient travelling using electric vehicles the Mira EV broke its own record this weekend by travelling a distance of 1,000 kilometers without any recharging during a trial run held by Japan Electric Vehicle Club (Japan EV Club), and implemented at a training school for auto racers in Ibaraki, Japan. This time as well the car was equipped with lithium ion batteries normally used in laptops etc, and similar to the configuration used in setting the April record. We hope this newest record does help in realizing a low carbon society.
