Part 4 of Neil Young's keynote address from the Driving Green Performance Seminar at the SEMA convention in Las Vegas, Nov. 2, 2010.
In this series of videos, Neil explains the Lincvolt project, the technologies used and created in the development of the car and unveils Lincvolt for the SEMA community.
Lincvolt is the world's first Micro-Turbine powered Bio-Electro-Cruiser. She draws her power from a Bio-Diesel fueled Capstone Microturbine generator, and a UQM 150KW prime mover and super-safe Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries.
In 2007, Young assembled a team to modify his 1959 Lincoln Continental to enable it to run on electricity. The goal was to inspire a generation by creating a clean automobile propulsion technology that serves the needs of the 21st century, reduce greenhouse gas emissions to a new low while delivering performance that is a reflection of the driver's spirit. By creating and demonstrating this new clean power technology, Lincvolt hopes to show a way to reduce the demand for petro-fuels enough to eliminate the need for war over energy supplies, thereby enhancing the security of the USA and other nations throughout the world.
