Japanese SIM-Cel EV Prototype Fast, Has Laser Lights

SIM-Drive in Japan, a coalition of 34 different companies tasked with creating a Japanese, all-electric prototype vehicle, announced recently it was now on the third iteration of its vision. First it was the SIM-Lei back in 2011, followed the next year by SIM-Wil, a car reputed to go 218 miles on a single charge. Now comes SIM-Cel (Cool Energy Link), marching the company one step closer to a 2015 mass vehicle production goal.

SIM-Cel builds upon the successes of the first two prototypes, according to SIM-Drive, and continues at a range of over 200 miles per charge. The vehicle is noted for a 0 to 100 km acceleration of just 4.2 seconds, with maximum torque on the electric motor being expanded to 850 Nm. The electric car is also said to have a higher level of power efficiency, made possible in part by the “idling stop system,” a technique by which inverter output is stopped when the vehicle is stationary. The aerodynamic design has been improved as well.
