"Today everybody is exited about REE, tomorrow Peak Oil time will come and Lithium will make the headlines again. During excitement stage it is easy to make the wrong decision and chase the mini bubbles only to see them to pop - do not mistake the mega trends, Next Big Thing and parabolic rises. There is time to buy and time to sell. REE gives us a very good example - what can happen with a very small sector, when the all world depends on it. Peak Oil realisation will be next. With GM Volt and Nissan Leaf on the streets you will see the future - The Future is Electric."

China is taking Electric Cars very seriously. Just over the weekend we were listening to Jim Puplava with Puru Saxena discussing Peak Oil situation and how China is moving fast to mitigate the situation. Thousands of miles of high speed railway system are built now, connecting all major cities in China with latest trains as fast as 400km/h. There is a plan now to connect China by high speed railway system with Singapore - China is facilitating the move from the airlines and to the high speed trains, which could be powered by electricity.

Electric car is the solution for the ground transportation and with billions of dollars invested in electric cars now we have the major catalyst in the making. Now they are ordering electric power-trains for Electric Buses from UK. Everybody is fighting for the Chinese market and China welcomes the West...with the proper technology. Industry insiders are talking straight - in any case our technology will be subject of a copycat in another couple of years - we will be better off if we can get at least part of the profits.

BYD - Chinese company backed by Warren Buffett - has literally thousands of engineers working on battery systems and electric power-trains. If this nation can produce everything from iPhone to latest DWDM optical switches, it will take only time when Chinese engineers will come up with their own products and they can actually lead in electric cars technology.

Last week news about DBM Energy with its wonder Lithium Metal Polymer battery gave us some hope that not everything is lost in the West, but we will have to see who will buy and implement that technology in the end. If the claims of that company will be confirmed mass transportation system could be easily converted into electric one based on electric buses. It all means additional demand for lithium and REE.

Liberty Electric Cars wins Chinese Government contract
27th September 2010
Liberty Electric Cars has entered into an agreement with a Chinese Government agency to provide the technology for a pure electric bus platform to be built in China. The programme sees the building of a minimum of 10,000 buses over a 5 year period with the possibility for this to rise to 30,000. Each one of the buses to be built in China will use a unique “e-Kit” designed, assembled and shipped from the North East of England. A dinner in celebration of the partnership was hosted by Sir John Hall at Wynyard Hall in the North East, where the management team of Liberty and the Chinese delegation were told by Sir John of his support and enthusiasm for the project and the prestige it would bring to the area.

And we have again Lithium Polymer battery packs here.


The Liberty Electric E-Range is the world’s first luxury high-performance, Pure Electric, non-polluting 4x4 that will be readily available to fill a significant gap in the family-size and luxury vehicle market – and it will be available in the UK before any other country by the end of this year.
The Liberty Electric E-Range accelerates from zero to 60 in circa 7 seconds, reaches a top speed of 100mph, and has a distance capacity of 200 miles on one single charge – this is the upper end of the drive range that any current EV is able to achieve. In short, the vehicle enables the consumer to enjoy the power, prestige and luxury of the iconic Range Rover without the cost to the environment.
The proprietary and patented technology works by engineering electric propulsion into existing vehicle platforms, replacing the internal combustion engine with electrical power via four on-board motors (one per wheel). Liberty’s electric technology incorporates a state of the art energy storage system that is easily rechargeable from a standard electricity supply or with a fast charger. This provides performance and range ability that has never before been achieved in the 4x4 sector and allows for significantly lower running costs when compared to normal cars – for example those spending an average of £50 a week on petrol would see their costs reduce to just £10 a week.
The new technology can also allow for wireless charging – another world-first – where the car is simply parked over an induction plate and charges automatically without the need for plugs or power leads.

With the E-Range, no maintenance is needed

With the change to Pure Electric, the motors and batteries need no maintenance.
We are offering distance intervention for software changes and updates, so we should be able to assess and fix minor things over the internet. The brakes and suspension parts will need maintenance as per a usual car. However, there is no exhaust, no service on the engine, less wear on the brakes, no fuel tank or lines to get blocked or wear out, no air filters, oil filters or old oil to dispose of – just all round much cleaner!
“The E-Range is the first large, luxury vehicle that is 100 per cent zero emission yet performs as well – and in some cases even better – than any combustion-engine equivalent available on the market today” says Barry Shrier, CEO of Liberty Electric Cars.

Easy Charging
Liberty’s unique patented high density Lithium Polymer Battery Pack features a quick charge option from a suitably powerful charging system mounted off board.
On-board trickle charger provides charging from any suitable point including standard 13 amp supply. The battery can be charged in one to three hours from a fast charger or using an optional induction system.
Liberty technology can also allow for wireless charging — another world-first — where the car is simply parked over an induction plate and charges automatically without the need for plugs or power leads."
