Manufacturer: Liberty Electric Cars
The E-Range has a top speed of 85mph, a 0-60mph of 7 seconds, and a range of up to 200 miles per charge. It also can utilize an innovative induction-charging (aka "wireless charging") method by which an optional induction plate is installed in a garage or parking space and when the E-Range is parked over it, it automatically recharges the batteries.
Charge times vary by method with plug-in on the European circuit charging the massive 75kW batteries in 3 hours (via fast-charger) or by induction.
The battery lifespan is a claimed 13 years or 300,000 miles, another industry first. The E-Range retains it's four wheel drive through four motors, one in each wheel.
And so ...
While several of the systems on the E-Range are patented, including the batteries and wireless charging method, the validity of Liberty's claims have not been independently tested.
