Building a Better Electric Vehicle Battery
In an industrial building in Palmer Lake, a small company is making a mighty effort to advance what its founders see as the silver bullet for the automotive industry — pure electric power.
“Every technology has its time — more exotic battery technology will be developed, costs will decrease, and we’ll see the vast proliferation of electric cars,” said Daniel Rivers, president and chief operating officer of American Electric Vehicles Inc.
Formed in 2004 as an electric-vehicle research, development and design firm, the seven-employee company has created electric battery packs, drive trains and off-road vehicles for the Air Force, converted commercial and personal vehicles to electric power, developed mega-battery packs that store electricity and act as a generator, and designed battery packs to make Neighborhood Electric Vehicles go faster.
