The first commercial electric car battery is a big hit at the showroom: The BBC’s MTV News
By Peter SmithThe BBC is launching its first commercial battery-powered car on Saturday.
The electric car will be used by a young boy at the London Auto Show.
The BBC has chosen to showcase the car for its electric cars program, which it has developed in partnership with Toyota, with a goal of getting more people to buy electric cars.
The project will have its debut on the show’s flagship MTV News programme, which will cover topics including the latest technology and how to buy and operate an electric vehicle.
The car will feature a hybrid battery, which is designed to generate 100 percent of its energy from the battery pack’s kinetic energy.
It will have a range of up to 300 miles (480km), according to the BBC.
At the event, which takes place in London, the BBC will also highlight the car’s innovative design and electric powertrain.
The programme’s host, Chris Evans, said that the BBC is excited about the potential of this innovative new technology.
“It’s a technology that has a huge potential for the future and for the automotive industry,” Evans said.
“The car is designed and manufactured by Toyota, which makes electric vehicles and it’s a hugely exciting and exciting project.”
The car has already received backing from a number of major automotive companies, including Ford, BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, Porsche, Renault, Skoda and Tesla Motors.
It will be on display for the first time at the BBCs London Auto show.
“This car is the first of many in the pipeline and this is a really exciting project for our future electric car industry,” said Adam Hargreaves, BBC’s director of electric cars and electric vehicles at the time.
“The BBC’s programme will help build awareness and support the industry to take a leading role in helping people get to the point where we can actually build the first production vehicles in the UK.”
