QBEAK: eco car that will travel over 800 kilometers without refueling
A new environmentally friendly concept car was created by the combined efforts of three companies from Denmark. The ambitious project developed by them will launch in 2013 an electric car that can run on 804 km distance record until the next "full".

The new prototype will have such a serious advance in front of his main rival, ecological car Chevrolet Volt, which can travel at 600 km distance without requiring refueling.
Modular concept Carrir Energy (MECC), created after the collaboration between a number of three Danish companies using bio-methanol to power the car battery.
Morgens Lokke CEO ECOmove, the company that designed the car "QBEAK", argues that bio-methanol is a superior fuel or diesel gasoline because it produces a much smaller quantity of carbon dioxide.
"Adding the technologies used to build the car, which weighs just 425 kg, we can easily achieve a range of motion that exceeds 800 kilometers," he says.
A solution composed of bio-methanol and water is converted to create electricity, while the residual energy resulting from this process supplies cooling and heating systems of the car.
"Instead it equipped with a fixed battery, we built six modules that can be mounted inside the chassis. The modules can be operated from battery power or any other energy source," adds Lokke.

Multi award winning QBEAK benefit from a patented electric motor which allows a maximum speed of 120 km / hour. The car already came to the attention of European royal houses this year, when its prototype was seen by Britain's Prince Charles and Camilla, during a visit by them Danemerca. The two got into QBEAK during their visit to Vitus Bering Innovation Park, during May this year.
Prince Charles has vowed to track future trends ECOmove, saying later that the car QBEAK is particularly interesting. According to Mads Friis Jensen in the company Serenergy, bio-methanol is an abundant and inexpensive fuel that produces minor amounts of carbon dioxide. Compared with gasoline, bio-methanol produces 70% less emissions.
US Department of Energy (DOE) argues that methanol does not have problems of storage period compared with other biofuels, because the liquid can be easily transported.

QBEAK project hopes to launch later this year and a model powered by a battery that confer a range of motion of about 300 km. Citycar is an electric car for two people, specially designed to be used easily in big cities. The car takes up very little space and weighs less than 450 pounds, having the ability is "folded" to save space. According to MIT, Citycar is the ideal machine to be rented for the purpose of trips around the city, being an attractive option for tourists.
