Laser Power Systems has created a new Thorium car is completely emission-free, turbine-free, and is electricity generated.
It’s one of the new sustainable-powered engines to show just how unnecessary modern day propulsion engines are and also offer an exciting alternative. Fuelled by nuclear thorium lasers, this engine only needs 8 grams of fuels every 100 years.
Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Connecticut-based company, Charles Stevens, confirmed the claims that one gram of thorium yields the energy of 7,500 gallons of gasoline.
Harnessed by heating the energy from an external source, the energy becomes so dense the molecules produce heat. A vehicle that needs refilling once a lifetime.
It seems many countries and military agencies have been experimenting with this type of energy to power vehicles for a number of years. And now with designs to create a car for the public, those who find their gasoline budget a sensitive topic may find relief in this model.
The car will be released into the open market by 2018.
