World’s First All-Electric Limousine

Imperial Coach Builders of Springfield, Mo. made headlines in June when it created the world’s first all-electric stretch limousine. “We took a regular Nissan LEAF electric,” said Nathan Daily, the company’s head electrician, “and we cut it into two and basically extended the frame and everything to add a center section to stretch it into a limousine.” That electric limo is now up for auction on eBay.

The process of stretching the Leaf obviously adds weight to the EV, which still employs Nissan’s 24-kilowatt hour lithium-ion battery pack. Therefore, driving range on a single charge will be less than the usual 80 or so miles offered by the Leaf.

But this does not diminish the uniqueness of the vehicle, or the publicity (and green cred) the right owner would get from driving what is likely the world’s only zero-emissions limousine. The design is fully revealed in several YouTube tours of the vehicle.

why not buy a Tesla model S you don't have to convert it. You would have one less seat and way more storage.

The so called electric car is not really emission free as we are told by the manufacturers. We still use Coal, Nuclear and Oilpower to recharge those vehicles, dirty power!
So we are back where we started, big Oil making more money than ever and taking no responsibility what so ever, just filling their pockets.
I recently had a 3.5 kWh system installed on my roof with great expence in anticipation to be green feed an electric car. Wrong, sure I save on my home bill if I produce about the same amount. If I produce more, I get 8 cents/kWh buy back and in a bad month I buy my own electricity back for 28/kWh cents. Looks like the leaches have it all covered.Frustrating!

Does this concept not defeat the whole purpose of the electric car?
