5.   Bertone B99 Jaguar Electric with Range Extender Concept 2011

Bertone introduces two concept cars for a future Jaguar sedan and its racing saloon version. The challenge has been to integrate the brand image.
 The name B99 stands for B as in Bertone and 99 for the company  near 100 year anniversary in 2012, one of the oldest design companies in the world. The concept projects Jaguar's classic style into the future with refined Bertone elegance, exploring a fascinating new form language with a “dynamic imbalance” between parallel lines and leaping forms. The result is a compact, four-door sedan (4.5 m long, 1.35 m tall, 1.95 m wide, 2.8 m wheelbase) that fits perfectly into the D segment.
Bertone  presents not only the luxury sedan in Geneva but also a full GT2 race version, maintaining the exceptional “double soul” tradition of the Jaguar brand, adding high speed aerodynamic appendages and aggressive graphics for continued success on the race track.
In terms of technological innovation, the B99 uses a pure hybrid power system designed and developed by Bertone Energy (the newest Bertone division dedicated to renewable energy research), including a thermal engine for range extension and two electric motors which provide propulsion for the rear wheels. Bertone has been studying ecologically sustainable powertrain systems for the past twenty years.
The B99 is powered by a modular, Extended Range Hybrid system which futuristic utilizes twin 150kW (204 Cv) electric engines connected to the inboard side of the rear axle for propulsion and a lightweight 1.400 cm3 thermal engine producing 125 kW-170 Cv for range extension, giving a combined power output of 425 kW or 570 Cv. The thermal engine charges the Lithium-ion batteries while driving allowing for a theoretical range of 700 kilometers of highway driving between fill-ups with a carbon dioxide output of around 30 g Co2/km. The B99 can also travel in full electric mode offering zero emissions for 100kms.
For the Racing version, in order to meet the demanding performance requirements on the track, the modular “pure” hybrid system in the B99 has been modified to include two additional Lucchi electric engines for a four-wheel drive layout producing the equivalent of 725 kW, around 980Cv. Now the Jaguar racing dynasty has a new member, the B 99 GT.

11. Lohner Porsche Semper Vivus 1900 electric car with range extender

The Lohner Porsche Semper Vivus (“always alive”) was developed by Ferdinand Porsche when he combined his battery powered wheel hub drive with a petrol engine – the principle of the serial hybrid drive had been born.
In this vehicle, two generators connected with petrol engines formed a single charging unit, simultaneously supplying electricity to the wheel hub motors and batteries. As a full hybrid concept, the Semper Vivus was also able to cover a distance purely on battery power until  the combustion engine had to be engaged as charging station. To save weight and create space for a petrol engine, Ferdinand Porsche used comparatively small battery in the Semper Vivus with a mere 44 cells. He installed two water cooled 3,5 hp (2,6 kW) De Dion Bouton petrol engines for generating electricity

12. Tesla S for 2012 Electric Sedan scheduled for 2012

Tesla Motors was founded in 2006 and established at San Carlos in California. The Company is aimed at designing and manufacturing electric vehicles. The first model Tesla Roadster has already been sold at 1.300 units in several countries. In 2009, Tesla announced a second model which is a family sedan with electric propulsion. A slim water cooled lithium ion battery pack is positioned below the floor while electric motor and power electronics are located into a compact compartment between the rear wheels. This innovative integration is key to exploiting the advantages of an electric car and creates new opportunities in safety and performance while maximizing interior space. The volume under the front hood becomes a second trunk.
The Model S, which carries its charger onboard, can be recharged from 120V, 240V or 480V outlet, with the latter taking only 45 minutes. Moreover, the floor mounted battery pack is designed to be changed out in a quick operation allowing for the possibility of battery pack swap stations.  The car will be proposed with 160, 230 or 300 mile range battery options.
The aerodynamic body is essentially made of aluminium.
Quoted performance include 0 to 60 mph in 5,6 seconds and electronically limited 120 mph top speed. Expected sales base price is announced for 49.900 US$.
The Model S is undergoing extensive field testing and is expected to enter production by the end of 2011 for first delivery announced for 2012.
