Whatever happened to EEStor???

Thu Apr 29, 2010 3:54 pm

Does anybody know what's up these days with EEStor? Personally, I am inclined towards the view that the company was scam from the start, but this is more a feeling than a firm conviction. But what I'm actually wondering now is, Since they missed their own self-imposed deadline of year's end 2009 to deliver the first shipment of working EESUs to Zenn for installation in cars, have they given any excuses or explanations? Have they announced a new deadline? Or have they just closed up shop and quietly disappeared to Argentina with whatever remained of the company's bank account?
Reserved afternoon of 4/20.
"You can order" email late September, but was out of the country so...
Ordered very early October.
Dashboard says: more of the usual worthless Nissan b.s.
(Not on spreadsheet cuz I can't figure it out.)

You can follow EEStor story in minute detail at http://www.theeestory.com/home.

I think there is only a small chance of them being able to get products out at the claimed spec - even if they are not fraudsters. They have to break multiple known science / technology / economics limitations.

Zenn/EEstor have not given any formal excuses or explanations nor announced a new targets.
