Panasonic electric car does 100km/h on 192 double AAs

(Via DigitalWorldTokyo):
We’re really hoping that if Panasonic is planning to market its new Oxyride electric car at Christmastime it manages to include a few packs of batteries in the box to keep the kids happy past lunchtime.

Unsurprisingly, as it has just topped 100km/h and entered the record books as the world’s fastest vehicle powered by commercial dry-cell AA batteries, the Oxyride machine eats up 192 of the cells at a time.

They are the largest battery makers... Not very surprising...

The Hybrid Batteries Toyota uses are made by Panasonic... And unlike Sony, no laptop batteries have been recalled for blowing up... although we (I say that coming from a family of Matsushita workers) did have one problem with batteries for Nokia not long ago... Oh well...

And these are dry-cells, not lion right? So the problem shouldn't be there.
