Microturbine Supercar

Go fast. Go clean. Go far.

The CMT-380 is the world’s rst microturbine-powered supercar. This sleek hybrid-electric sports car draws its power from lithium polymer batteries and a Capstone

C30 microturbine. The CMT-380 proves that a plug-in hybrid can deliver the driving experience of a high-performance supercar and achieve extremely high fuel economy, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and ultra-clean vehicle emissions.

Driving Performance(1)

• 0 – 60 mph in 3.9 seconds

• 150 mph top speed (electronically limited)

• 80 mile battery range

• 500 mile total range

Fuel Economy

CMT-380 Concept Car

Standards for reporting fuel economy or energy consumption for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are still being developed by the US Environmental Protection Agency, the Society of Automotive Engineers and others. Following are preliminary energy consumption estimates for the CMT-380, which re ect the dual- fuel capability of such hybrids. Actual mileage will depend on how you drive and when you recharge.

The CMT-380 meets the most stringent exhaust emissions requirements of the US EPA Tier II, Bin 2 and the California Advanced Technology – Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) categories. The bar graph shows the microturbine NOx emissions (in grams per mile) compared with the EPA and CA requirements, as well as the emissions from the California and average US grid. Note that the CMT-380 has less net emissions of NOx, and other criteria pollutants even when it is operating in charge sustaining
