Subaru’s innovative electric car, the Plug-in STELLA, is going on sale in Japan, with deliveries starting from late July.
Around 170 Plug-in STELLAs are expected to be sold over the next Japanese fiscal year, ending March 31, 2010.
Powered by a high performance lithium-ion battery, the production four-door Plug-in STELLA offers up to 90 kilometres range.
It can be recharged up to 80 per cent of capacity in 15 minutes using a “quick charge” system. It is fully recharged in eight hours using an AC100 volt Japanese household power outlet, or five hours at AC200 volts.
Plug-in STELLA produces zero carbondioxide emissions. The electric motor produces 47 Kilowatts of power, offering smooth acceleration and instant maximum torque.
The battery system also recovers inertia energy in deceleration, via a regeneration system, further enhancing energy efficiency.
