Electrovaya to Exhibit Maya-100 Electric ZEV

November 16, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Electrovaya Inc. (Toronto, ON), a leader in portable power based on its lithium-ion Superpolymer® battery technology, announced that it will be exhibiting its prototype Maya-100 all-electric, zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) at the 20th International Electric Vehicle Symposium at Long Beach, CA, from November 15 to 19, 2003.

Electrovaya's Maya-100 prototype is powered by lithium-ion SuperPolymer® batteries, which feature an energy density of over 200Wh/kg, and is five times lighter than lead-acid battery chemistries, taking up less space.

"The demand for a clean urban vehicle has been growing rapidly and with the increasing uncertainty about the ability to commercialize fuel cell vehicles, we believe that the technology developed by Electrovaya provides the solution," said Electrovaya Chief Technology Officer James Jacobs.
