This is the concept car, but we can get the glimpse of things to come with autonomous driving. Lithium based technology allows this kind of future of automotive design apart from obvious environmental benefits. Europe will be implementing strict air pollution control in the next few years in all major city centres, when only electric cars will be allowed.
There is no place for the IC Engine or transmission in this car! It must be born Electric. We have another glimpse in the future and now we can appreciate more the vision from Elon Musk: "Everything will be fully electric, except for Rockets!"
"The Electric hybrid system has a total range of 1,100 kilometres, including around 200 kilometres of battery-powered driving and around 900 kilometres on the electricity from the fuel cell. This enables the F 015 Luxury in Motion to cover distances similar to those of a comparable diesel-engined car, but purely on electric power with zero local emissions."

"Joe Lowry has published a very interesting article about the lithium market, major producers and rising Chinese powerhouses in lithium industry. You can find now more details on International Lithium strategic partner Ganfeng Lithium. Apple Electric iCar and Warren Buffet BYD move into energy storage to chase Elon Musk with his Tesla Gigafactory bring Lithium back onto the radar screens of investors now. Read more."
