Battery maker Electrovaya Inc. (TSX: EFL) plans to build a small, low-speed commuter car powered by its proprietary lithium ion polymer power pack technology.

The zero-emission Maya-300 is said to offer a range of 190 kilometres with a top speed of 55 kilometres per hour – "ideal for fleet operators in cities, universities and parks as well as the many households with a second or third vehicle for urban driving within a local neighbourhood," the company said Wednesday.

The two-seat vehicle's battery system can be recharged at standard electricity outlets.
