U.S.' backward lack of vision is good for Canada

EV By Diane Walsh Jan-17-2011 ... Not only is this vehicle fully
electric, answering the zero emission vehicle (ZEV) demand, it sports =

the all=97green-to-manufacture=97hemp based body panels to boot!

Groundbreaking? Indeed it is. Motive Industries Inc., out of Calgary =

Alberta, is changing the face of car manufacturing by simultaneously =

employing Hemp and electric for the vision for the industry=92s future =

in Canada.

The Kestrel was showcased for the first time in Vancouver at last =

September=92s Electric Vehicle (EV) Conference and Trade show. We=92ve =

caught up with Nathan Armstrong, President of Motive Industries, who =

says this: "It went very well. Huge response and the internet visits =

went viral. We did get some flack internally for aligning with hemp, =

but they got over it." =


... the U.S. is more backward, in not allowing the use of industrial
hemp. This lack of vision is good for Canada ... For electric-car =

manufacture, steel=92s not exactly light-weight. To make ultra-efficient
vehicles (obviously a desired feature) hemp bio-composite fits the =

need ...

The reason this innovation hasn=92t formed the baseline for next year=92s
electric car body shells is because ... the "supply chain isn=92t really
in place=97 yet."

... It=92s obvious that the Kestrel will be influencing the future of =

electric-car building, but are there still stumbling blocks and =

wrongly-placed stigmas operating (a resistance to hemp use) preventing
more companies from following suit? That stigma must be busted =

wide-open=97through education ... The car will be available "in Canada
initially, then other countries ...

Darren McKeage is the designer behind the car and you can read his =

vision for the car on the MII blog http://autodesign-blog.com/?p=3D5 It =

carries four passengers including driver, can speed up to 90 km/hr, =

and boasts a range is 40 to 160 kilometres before recharge is =

required. Depending on the type of battery, the better the battery the
further the range ... [=A9 2010 Salem-News.com]
