In english, all of the above and more, but it's up to the entity building the vehicle.

The Very Light Car is not fuel-source constrained. It can be gasoline, electric, CNG, LPG, etc, but that is up to the entity that chooses to built it.

I caught up with social media working the conference. Before CEO Oliver Kuttner presented, the VLC4 had occasional visitors.

Since his presentation, the car has been swamped with OEM engineers.

The wireless system crashed so photos aren't coming out real-time, but I should have significantly more photos tonight/tomorrow.

"And they're spent..." Video of VLC4, Oliver Kuttner and Executive Director of the board heading home for the day.

Thanks for putting up with the flurry of posts. When all the media is aggregated I'll put up the album link again.

Thanks for both the pictures and the video. The video seems to be short blips edited together?

Gorgeous day for a gorgeous car!

Transcribed from the second picture:

* Edison2's platform leads a parts infrastructure outside of the current industry supply chain
- 85+ MPG (on gasoline) 200+ MPGe (electric)
- 70 miles electric range a <$0.013 / mile with a low cost battery (10KW/HR - $4000)
- 6 hour charge time with a standard 110 volt outlet
- Gasoline only for emerging markets
* More competitive price
* Return to margin

Woo Hoo! [I'll edit mine if you edit yours]

I like the way that the 'hardtop roofline' loses to side intrusion protection. I want mine with a folding rear seat, triangular flatbed and porous pop-up boattail, and an off-road 'granny' gear.

That's because local gauges usually indicate gauge (excess) pressure rather than absolute pressure.

@ work, almost all our instrumented pressure equipment that feeds into the PLC reads absolute pressure, so they indicate 1 bar at atmospheric pressure.
