    Ryan…please pass on this patent to the battery engineer: http://www.nature.com/srep/2014/140708/srep05623/full/srep05623.html.
    Possible three times the life for lithium batteries.
    smiles, Charles

    • Ian Roberts

      Better to look in to Li S battery tech, this has potential to be a game changer for electric vehicles

      • Jeff May

        Guys… Lit is a vehicle company, not a battery company. It’s an important distinction.
        They’ll be using whatever batteries are available on the market, not developing new batteries.

        • Charles Felton

          Jeff…just letting them know WHAT might be available

        • Ian Roberts

          Indeed they are Jeff, which is why the battery tech that is available should be considered in the vehicles charging and battery management systems, it is also important to the viability of the project as a battery that would provide a 150 mile range would be viewed differently by consumers than one that has 450 mile range between charges, I think you are being a little short sighted to simply dismiss the upcoming battery tech as none of LIT’s business.

    Will there be Canadian dealers

    • http://litmotors.com Lit Motors

      We do not plan to have dealerships. We’re following Tesla’s sales model: all sales will be direct through the internet, with public showrooms to roll out eventually (not likely before the first production run).

        Smart. I really like the strategy.

  • Bill Burgess

    Have you done any road tests? Any corners or pylons? I do wish you had considered the siding doors as they were off the shelf hardware.

    • http://litmotors.com Lit Motors

      Yes, we’re conducting road tests right now. We’ll release new footage soon!

      -Ryan

      • Bill Burgess

        So that’s a Yes? You have taken it around a corner and maybe a pylon or two?

    • Jacek

      This vehicle will be parked in tight places, sometimes between other motorcycles. The only doors for it are scissors. Sliders will go too much to the back. Please comment.

      • http://litmotors.com Lit Motors

        Yep, that’s what we’re looking into! Some type of scissor door.

        -Ryan

        • Bill Burgess

          I suppose that’s why they make apples and oranges…I just think the balance of sliding doors would be better..this will look too much like a Caddis Fly or a Blue Upright Trout Fly…
