Kestrel - Canada's Cannabis Electric Car


Kestrel - Canada's Cannabis Electric Car
When you make a race car or electric car for that matter, you extensively use carbon fiber to keep it as light as possible to increase its performance and fuel economy. Making a new breakthrough in this field, Canada based company, Motive Industries, has come up with Kestrel, which is a bio-composite bodied electric car. The material used in its making isnít carbon fiber but Cannabis fiber called hemp.
Kestrel is the first vehicle for the Canadian automotive industry, and this vehicle for four is made of bio material derived from the hemp mats produced by Alberta Innovates Technology Futures (AITF). Donít take Hemp otherwise as it is a variety of cannabis, and itís the most interesting as well as exotic material weíve seen used in car design this year.

The best part, however, is itís cheap, lighter, as impact-resistant as fiberglass, green and above all itís legally grown in Canada under license from Health Canada. Engineered by Darren McKeage for a program called Project Eve, Kestrel will undergo prototyping and testing later this month. The vehicle will be finally unveiled at the EV 2010 V… Conference and Trade Show in Vancouve this September. (Article from AutoMotto)
