Kawasaki recently revealed the “J” three-wheel electric concept vehicle at this year’s 2013 Tokyo Motor Show – a personal mobility system of the future that adapts to the type of travel required, from city riding to fun sport riding. “J” employs Kawasaki’s proprietary battery management technology. For example, GIGACELL, a high-capacity nickel-metal hydride battery, can store large quantities of electricity, enabling a stable supply to a power grid.
