Toray has spent 300 million yen to develop a prototype electric vehicle that uses a carbon fiber body. This car was exhibited at the Toray Advanced Materials Show 2011. By using lots of light, strong carbon fiber, Toray has achieved a lightweight vehicle that's energy-efficient and ensures safety in a crash. This concept EV is an open car for two people, with a top speed of 147 km/h, and a range of 185 km on a single charge.
