V Vehicle Gets $62.25M
San Diego-based V Vehicle, the stealth energy efficient automobile firm, has raised $62.25M in a funding round which closed July 20th, according to a regulatory filing from the firm today. It's unclear if the funding is part of a reported $100M investment from Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, or a new funding. V Vehicle has been mum about its plans for an energy efficient vehicle, but has purchased a defunct automotive plant in Monroe, Louisiana. The firm is also backed by T. Boone Pickens.
