ELECTROSOURCE ANNOUNCES CONTRACT SIGNING

 ELECTROSOURCE ANNOUNCES CONTRACT SIGNING
 AUSTIN, Texas, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Electrosource, Inc.


(NASDAQ: ELSI) announced today that it had signed a contract with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) of Palo Alto, Calif.
 The contract involves a 42-month program relating to Electrosource's high-capability Horizon Electric Vehicle (EV) Battery. The goal of the program is for Electrosource to finalize baseline cell development of the battery and complete necessary module R&D for packaging. Initial development of this EV Battery has shown it dramatically increases the potential range of EVs.
 Phase 1 (1992) of the program calls for total expenditures of $992,006, with EPRI providing one-half of this amount. The balance of the program is contingent upon availability of funding.
 The contract provides for the development of a 200 Ah. 6 volt, 50 Wh/Kg battery module capable of 600 charge-discharge cycles. When assembled into an EV Battery pack, the module will meet the Chrysler TE-Van requirements.
 The contract signing follows receipt by Electrosource of a letter of intent from EPRI announced May 16, 1992.
 EPRI is a research and development organization funded by electric utility companies. Approximately 70 percent of domestic electric utility companies are members of EPRI. Electrosource is a publicly traded company headquartered in Austin. The company's principal business is developing advanced lead acid batteries for commercial applications.
