General Motors Corp. officially launches its second-generation EV1 electric vehicle (EV) earlier this month, calling it the “most energy efficient vehicle in the world.” The new EV1 features a nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) battery pack that GM says provides a driving range of between 75 miles (121 km) and 140 miles (225 km) — nearly double the range of the original EV1 powered by lead-acid batteries.
