This SAAB 96 is converted to an electric vehicle in 2009, and now has a new battery pack (LiFePo4) that allows greater autonomy.
This electric SAAB 96 coincidentally runs on 96 volts that are stored in 16 rechargeable flooded lead-acid deep-cycle 6-volt batteries. They provide around 50 miles of range if driven carefully.

With electric cars you can experience a “range of ranges.” This car now has over 10,000 oil-free miles and counting. The batteries are fully recyclable and are expected to be useful for up to 3-4 years.
The 100% electric SAAB 96 drops its lead-acid pack for a new lithium pack and enjoys trippple the range and way more performance:
