Electric vehicles Tesla recharges the batterycar market The Economist

Tesla recharges the battery-car market IT HAS not been a good year for the electric-car industry, considering the bankruptcy of little Coda and the all-but-certain collapse of the once-promising Fisker Automotive. Even well-established carmakers such as General Motors and Nissan have been struggling to entice buyers (though Nissan’s Leaf battery car has begun to develop a little bit of momentum after missing its sales target for the second year in a row). So it is perhaps no surprise that 42% of the shares in Tesla Motors, a maker of electric cars based in Silicon Valley, are now held by short-sellers.

Clemson Vehicular Electronics Laboratory Electric PowerAssisted Steering

Electronic Power Steering Basic Description Power steering systems supplement the torque that the driver applies to the steering wheel. Traditional power steering systems are hydraulic systems, but electric power steering (EPS) is becoming much more common. EPS eliminates many HPS components such as the pump, hoses, fluid, drive belt, and pulley. For this reason, electric steering systems tend to be smaller and lighter than hydraulic systems. EPS systems have variable power assist, which provides more assistance as the speed of a vehicle decreases and less assistance at higher speeds. They do not require any significant power to operate when no steering assistance is required. For this ...

Electric Vehicle Insurance Car Insurance List

Electric Vehicle Insurance Posted September 20th, 2010 filed under Knowledge Center . When considering insurance for an electric or EV car, the important thing to remember is that the basic rules apply in terms of qualifying for a good rate. In the vast majority of cases, insurance companies do not yet have EV-specific policies and will continue to weigh your driving record, age, and occupation as factors of equal or greater importance to the make and model of your car. That being said, however, anyone who has ever driven and attempted to insure a high-performance vehicle or sports car knows that perceptions of safety are a factor in premium calculation. Almost all insurers will reward ...

Am I missing Seomthing? What does GM get out of it? as BlackGTP just noted, GM’s making money off this. Some of you are under this ridiculous Foxnewsesque belief that all Chinese companies just steal stuff left and right. Yes, many Chinese companies steal technology, but NOT those engaged in joint-ventures with foreign manufacturers. Would YOU remain business partners with someone who stole from you? Hell no. And neither would any carmaker. SAIC didn’t just go and rip off the GM platform ...
