V-Vehicle Blog Chatter

We’ve run across a couple of blogs that have commented on The (Monroe) News-Star V-Vehicle story last week about vehicle “testing.”

Lessons in Stealth Communications: V-Vehicle Tries to Keep Technology Details Under Wraps

The bottom line is that Fisher would not confirm certain details of the Star-News report. For example, when I asked if V-Vehicle is testing multiple prototypes, or just one prototype, Fisher told me, “We haven’t commented yet on prototypes.” He added that “entering the testing and validation stage” does not refer to prototypes. When asked what it does refer to, Fisher said it means the startup has begun engineering on test vehicles. But he declined to define the meaning of a test vehicle, saying, “I’m not sure that we’re going to go beyond” what V-Vehicle has said in its official statements.

V-Vehicle Update: Testing a Prototype, Still Hoping for Federal Funds

This latest milestone for V-Vehicle — progressing to prototype testing of its first vehicle years after its 2006 founding — contrasts with the increasing momentum of Fisker, which is also backed by Kleiner Perkins. Although not founded until 2007, Fisker is now closer than V-Vehicle to production. After winning a $528.7 million loan this fall through the ATVM loan program, Fisker last week signed on A123Systems as a battery supplier and partner. It also closed a $115.3 million investment round to meet its equity requirements for the federal loan and help it set up U.S. manufacturing.

Lincoln Parish News Online has reported extensively on the controversial company and the Monroe project. Archived stories can be found here. We will continue to report on this ongoing story.
