Rinspeed’s vision of the future includes electric vehicles, EV and public transportation working together.

The gist is today is the perfect time to build for tomorrow and plans have never been more bold or ambitious. Perhaps Rinspeed ‘s vision of the future is one of the most intriguing and seems like a perfect solution, at least for certain countries. For those who give in to the abuse of the range anxiety scare, why not use today’s electric vehicle.

EV technology with current modern train networks and have both work together?

EV Into Electric Trains . If the short range of EVs can be an inconvenience for those rare occasions when we need to drive more than 300 miles straight without stopping, blasting full AC, full stereo, full headlights, full multimedia/internet connection, how about using a train and give your batteries a rest? In a certain sense, the infrastructure already exists, at least in Europe with their extensive rail system and the Eurotunnel. And Rinspeed’s idea wants to use both for long distances, put your EVs in a train while it recharges.

Europe Ready, The U.S. Catching Up . Rinspeed’s solution is ready for Europe that, thankfully has a coherent and well established rail system. Unfortunately for the U.S. decades of abandoning rails in favor of the shorter lived highways and its evil counter part, fuel and its twin kin pollution, the lack of a coherent rail system has left the country scrambling to rebuilt what was once a prestigious way to travel.

Best case scenario currently for a Los Angeles to NY is over 5 days, under ultimate conditions. Amtrack will not give you a definitive time of arrival. or day in the winter.

Rinspeed has been working on EV concepts for some time now, as we have covered in the past at Electricnick (seriously, no connection to my name). The company will be presenting their latest at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show 2010. Their QC EV concept will be production-capable when it reaches the show, and stands at 8.2 feet long, with a 75-mile range and a 68-mph top speed, according to Electricnick .

Rinspeed’s idea is not so far fetched and trains already handle that sort of traffic in Europe with the Eurotunnel. In the U.S. it would not be a short term project and would take decades to build a significant infrastructure. None the less, considering how far we have come in the space of a year, it would not be surprising to see it built in a decade. We must keep into consideration that battery technology is becoming more energy dense, i.e. EV are able to travel further and further which might make the point of train traveling not as important.

It would still be an intelligent solution for interlinking cities and work commuters.
