Acciona to enter 2015 Dakar Rally in an Electric Car!
A Spanish team, Acciona is all set to enter the Dakar 2015 in their Electric Car.
This is a first electric car to enter the endurance event.
Dakar rally is the most grueling event in Motorsports and if Acciona could complete the event, this will be great for electric cars worldwide.
Acciona To Bring All-Electric Car To the Dakar Rally
All the best to Acciona and hope they complete the event without any issues.

Re: Acciona to enter 2015 Dakar Rally in an Electric Car!
Wow, definitely something to look out for!
Most people are scared to leave their neighborhood with an electric car, and these guys are doing the Dakar. 9,000 kms!
Quick look at the specs:
Motor: 300hp @ 6,000 rpm
Torque: 700 Nm
Batteries: 140kW/h lithium-ion batteries in 4 removable packs
Energy consumption: 20 - 45kWh / 100Km (according to type of terrain). So this means 310 - 700 km per charge!
BONUS: Solar panel: "High-performance" panel producing 100Wh - not bad!
