SymPowerco and HMSI Enter Joint Design Discussions

by Lenny Case

SymPowerco Corporation CEO John Davenport announced that the company and Hoss Motor Sports, Inc. ("HMSI") have entered discussions for the development of design criteria and specifications for Prototype Hybrid Electric Powered Test Vehicles. The company recently announced that it had signed a Letter of Intent to acquire a majority interest in HMSI, the manufacturer of Ultimate Terrain Vehicles.

The joint design project will include a needs assessment to determine the suitability of HMSI's new facility for research and development of prototype electric vehicles to be used as test vehicles for SymPowerco's Flowing Electrolyte Direct Methanol Fuel Cell and related Hybrid Power Systems.

Stated SymPowerco CEO, John Davenport, "Hoss Motor Sports is entering a new phase of its operation in a new facility. They are already engaged in the development of new small vehicles for several diverse markets, including markets for electric vehicles. We will require test vehicles of varying design and weight that can be easily modified for several combinations of power supplies and battery systems. We believe that SymPowerco and HMSI can advance their respective technologies at substantially reduced costs if we develop projects with shared engineering objectives, personnel and facilities."

SymPowerco Corporation develops advanced fuel cell and power delivery systems for the rapidly growing personal transportation and portable power system markets being created by today's energy and environmental challenges.
