Precer Bioracer Car – runs on trees, saves dinosaurs

Precerbiomasscar

This Precer Bioracer Car runs on wood pellets. To be more precise the thing burns wood pellets to power a Stirling engine, which in turn charges up the batteries for the electric engine. Sound a bit complicated? Well, it’s actually not a million miles away from the new Chevy Volt, which uses a tiny diesel engine to charge up batteries for the electric motor as you drive. Maybe this is the future of eco vehicles? Interesting.

 The Bioracer is a 900 pound off-road vehicle with dual A-arm suspension in the front and swingarm suspension in the rear, much like an ATV or sand rail. The vehicle is powered by a 16 hp electric motor and is available with 2 or 4 wheel drive. Energy is stored in a 24 to 96 volt, 100 to 400 amp-hour battery pack depending on the customer’s specifications, providing up to 3 hours of driving on battery power alone…
