Edison Electron One With Graphene Battery Coming In 2016?
September 3rd, 2015 by Steve Hanley

CNN Money reports that Sunvault Energy and Edison Power Company have joined forces to produce an electric supercar featuring 4 electric motors, 1,000 lb-ft of torque, and a ground-breaking “graphene integrated hydrogen fuel cell” that can recharge in just 5 minutes. Oh, and the car will be here in the Spring of 2016. By my lightning-like calculations, that is less than 8 months from now. Really……

Named the Edison Electron One, it will have an electric motor for each wheel and blast to 60 mph in under 2 seconds. Company officials take delight in saying it will outperform any Tesla, Ferrari, or McLaren ever made. Here’s more of their happy talk:

“We are excited to be producing this truly revolutionary automobile that will put our Graphene Energy Storage Device front and center on the world stage at the simple turn of a key,” says Sunvault Energy chief executive officer Gary Monaghan. “The Electron One will not only be able to challenge any vehicle in performance, but will also be fully flexible, functional and convenient, just as a fuel-filled vehicle is today.”

Here’s more: “The fuel cell will be powered by an on demand hydrogen generation unit built into the car and will only require water,” commented Dr. Robert Murray-Smith, Director of Sunvault Energy. “With our Energy Storage Device, reliability and peace of mind are wrapped in one design,” added Gary Monaghan, CEO of Sunvault Energy.

So, an electric supercar that makes its own hydrogen for a fuel cell with enough power to move a car forward in truly epic fashion and all it needs is water and some electricity? Not only that, when the power gets low, it can be rejuvenated in just 5 minutes at a recharging station? My goodness. Jay Leno and Jeremy Clarkson must be placing their orders as we speak.

Not surprisingly, the Edison Electron One is available only upon special order. There is no word on how much it costs or what it looks like. But don’t fret. Former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson, one of the stars of the first Clinton administration, is involved in the project, so you can send your money off with no worries.

Some of the claims for this car are intriguing. What exactly is a graphene battery? Who makes it and how does it work? And precisely how does the hydrogen generator work? Inquiring minds want to know. Sadly, there are no answers to these questions. A search of Google failed to turn up any evidence that the car is real. Caveat emptor.

A little more hard information about this car would be nice. Perhaps we will know more when the companies present their new technology at The Battery Show 2015 in Detroit in two weeks. It is the premier showcase for the latest advanced battery technology, says CNN (and as you’ll see if you click that link and scroll down, Gas2 sister sites CleanTechnica and EV Obsession are media partners).

Basically, according to the company, you need to add water and while its charging, electricity will split the molecules into hydrogen – fast enough to fill the tank, apparently.
OK, but they don't mention mileage per tank full???.......... :roll:

Sounds like a very-hybrid vehicle. You add water, plug it into a charger, that runs an HHO generator, (see "Electrolysis of Water" to start with: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrolysis_of_water) the generated gas is then compressed into a tank before it is run through a hydrogen fuel cell which generates electricity into the batteries that power the motors......now this is just a guess......The real question is where are you going to get the mechanics to work on these cars?

:D

Sounds very like a very-capital investment scam ;) It's pure vapour ware.

If it sounds too good to be true..........most likely not.

2 seconds to 60 is rocket motor territory. :roll:

It takes more energy to make hydrogen from water than the hydrogen has to give to a 100% efficient fuel cell to convert back to electricity to make hydrogen. and there is no such thing as a 100% efficient fuel cell..

But on the plus side, that little model car in the picture sure looks cute.
Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Obviously then you don't need a "rocket motor" to crack 2 sec 0-60 :lol:
But , you have to look beyond 2 secs before you find anything other than a custom built motor.
The Viper is still pretty much a "customer special" , so really it's the Porche at 2.3 sec that is the first true "production " car....tho hardly a volume production one.
It all makes the Tesla (@2.6 ?) , with 4 seats, look even more impressive.

LOL, I guess when you have 20 inch wide hot sticky rubber or a multi million dollar F1 car, or custom tuned drag car, not too much a problem. Any street cars with normal sized street tires that are not four wheel drive or super light setups close to breaking 2 seconds to 60? Not heard of any verified yet! Only so much traction you can get to the ground to make this happen. P90d drastically stripped down (half the weight taken out of it) would be interesting. More on motor setup (it is four wheel drive) would be good to know and could dispel if this could be real or just optimistic.

I'm curious to see where this "Super Car" is in it's development. I notice there isn't anything updated on the Sun Vault page, nor are there any updates to the MK Technologies page. The chassis Robert F. Murray displays his YouTube channel looks like something you would use for off road or even a go cart. I want to know why this company is allowed to continue this hoax. Robert F. Murray has some "new" invention almost daily, none of which has anything to do with graphene technology or the build of this vehicle. Hemp battery, graphene water filter, bullet proof panel,....etc. In fact, his invention list could be considered random of which he never sees anything to the finish and never demonstrates anything in a real world usage. Only throws out enough theoretical information to get that stock bump.
