AMC Electron

AMC Electron -

The AMC Electron was a concept car from 1979.

In 1968, AMC showed an electric concept car named the Amitron. This was a three passenger vehicle powered by Lithium-Nickel batteries. To save weight and provide more hauling room, the seats were inflatable. With subtle styling changes the Amitron was shown again as the Electron in 1979 as part of AMC's Concept 80 show, featuring four other forward looking prototypes.
