Long range Turkish electric car hits the road

A team from Istanbul University's Electrical and Electronic Engineering department have created an electric car that travelled 2500 kilometres with just $17 worth of electricity. They are driving it around Turkey to test it in all sorts of road and weather conditions.

With petrol in Turkey costing about $2.18 per litre, going the same distance in a regular car would cost anywhere between $275-$450 depending on fuel efficiency!

The "T-1" can do 500 Km on only 4 hours of charge. It weighs 500 Kg and can reach speeds of 130 Km/h.
