Advanced Battery Technologies Debuts Hybrid Motorcycle At Dealer Expo 2009.

Advanced Battery Technologies, a leading developer, manufacturer and distributor of rechargeable Polymer Lithium-Ion (PLI) batteries, has announced that three hybrid motorcycles jointly developed by the Company and
Wuxi Angell Autocycle Co., Ltd, will debut at the Dealer Expo 2009 in Indianapolis, IN.

All three models are equipped with a lithium-ion battery pack (48V rated voltage and 15 amp/hour rated capacity) developed by the Company. The computerized control puts the motorcycle on pure-electric drive at low speed, and switches to the gasoline engine at high speed while recharging the batteries. The new design greatly increases total driving distance and optimizes the use of electric power to achieve 35% pollution reduction and a 20% increase in fuel efficiency, compared to comparable gasoline motorcycle engines.

Mr. Zhiguo Fu, Chairman and CEO of Advanced Battery Technologies, Inc. stated, "We are very excited to showcase the three new motorcycle models at Dealer Expo 2009. This demonstrates our continued commitment to developing products that are able to compete globally and to capture the increasing demand for green vehicles. We expect the production version of the three models to go into full-scale production in April 2009 and will be sold under the co-brand of Angell and ABAT USA."
