ELECTRIC CAR USES HEMP COMPOSITE
Electric car uses hemp composite to reduce weight to 2500 pounds
In 1941, Henry Ford developed a car body made from organic fibers, including hemp. Today, the first production-ready bio-composite electric car will be released. The Kestrel is a three-door hatchback, manufactured by Motive Industries. The hemp composite, which is as strong as marine-grade fiberglass, cuts the weight of the car including battery to 2,500 pounds. By 2012, thousands of these hemp-mobiles will be on the road. The price will be around $25,000.
