1997 General Motors EV1 MORE

In 1997 General introduced the EV1, probably the electric car ever produced. The car was in a response to California laws the sale of a certain percentage of that emitted no pollutants. Motors went to great to overcome the limited range by storage batteries.

Weight was to a minimum. EV1 s chassis. wheels, and parts are aluminum. Without the car weighs just 1775

The lead-acid batteries nearly the weight, adding 1175

The EV1 s tires are inflated to 50 psi, psi more than the typical powered car. The higher lowers rolling resistance, to extend range. The tires are designed to seal themselves punctured.

This allowed to do away with the dead of a spare tire.

A surprising of energy is required simply to a car through the air. Putting the EV1 s wheels 8.9 inches closer than the front wheels a teardrop shape that wind resistance. Eliminating the radio antenna added a to the car s range.

The result was a car that was 34% more than the 1997 Corvette.

lead-acid batteries were especially for the EV1. In 1998 nickel metal hydride were introduced that both longer range and battery life.

All the hard work paid off in (for an electric car) General Motors claimed a of 55 to 95 miles, depending on driving and conditions. The EPA certified the range at 79 for a typical combination of city and driving, and real-world experience by and road testers produced results.

An EV1 zips from to sixty miles per hour in eight seconds. Its top speed is at 80 miles per hour, but it is capable of 90 miles per hour. General estimated the range for cars nickel metal hydride at 75 to 130 miles.

None of this new technology cheaply. EV1s were only in California and Arizona, and by lease. Monthly lease in Arizona were $549.

In they were $399 California offered a government Even at those prices Motors was losing money on car. In 2001 GM announced they would no longer EV1s and would recall all the as their leases expired.

The corporation is currently exploring hybrids and fuel cells. as solutions to the problem of producing low or emissions vehicles.
