Ellica: 8-Wheeled Electric Car


Posted by John Goulden Categories: Design, Transportation


Eliica

What’s ugly as can be, has 8 wheels, and goes from zero to sixty miles per hour in 4.2 seconds?  It’s Eliica, the $260,000 electric-powered vehicle built by the Keio University in Tokyo.  Eliica has been around for a while, but it’s state-of-the-art as it uses nothing but Li-Ion batteries for power and can achieve a top speed of 230mph with a range of 185 miles (obviously not at top speed).  For a bit of flair, Eliica even sports gull wing doors.  Obviously a case of excess in every way, but it’s interesting to see what can be done with a little know-how and a lot of money.  More details can be found on Eliica’s official bog, provided of course you can read Japanese.
