Lamborghini is working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), to make a battery free electric car. The Lamborghini Terzo Millenio is an electric concept car that doesn’t use batteries. The car is made from exotic carbon nanotubes that would be used as a supercapacitor. Supercapacitors would store and release energy different from batteries.  it may take years for scientists from MIT and Lamborghini to overcome the problems and disadvantages of this battery free car but. According to Mauricuio Reggiani, Lamborghini’s head of research and development, says these years of research will be worth it. 

Reggiani states, “even the best batteries would work in a supercar because they would be too heavy and bulky. If the car would use small batteries, the batteries would drain and wouldn’t provide a performance for very long. Supercapacitors have some major disadvantages though. They don’t hold large amounts of energy for long term. Nowadays, supercapacitors are used to make a short burst of gasoline to restart an engine. The cars four wheels would be independently powered by individual electric motor. 

In conclusion, this idea will save the environment and not dispute pollution. This idea may take years to find all disadvantages and fix them. Terzo Millenio translates to “Third Millenium”
