Electric race cars such a great capacity for because they utilize more efficiently than combustion engines.

Already for saving gasoline and having emissions, electric cars quietly taken on an unlikely new — the ability to reach speeds that rival the performance of a typical Porsche or and compete on some racecourses the world’s best gasoline-powered an authority said here at a major scientific conference.

at the 246th National Meeting and of the American Chemical Society the world’s largest scientific electric vehicle pioneer E. Waters said that recent advances in engineering and use of batteries are producing electric (EVs) capable of leaving internal combustion engine cars in the dust.

Experimental electric cars have achieved sustained of more than 180 miles per and established world speed above 300 mph, Waters

Electric cars have advantages in efficiency and torque gasoline-powered vehicles. Energy on an EV platform is above 90 percent compared to less than 35 for internal combustion engines. I no doubt that battery-powered cars will be attracting fans in the immediate future.

His was among almost 7,000 on new advances in science and other scheduled for the meeting, which through Thursday in the Indiana Center and downtown hotels.

It was many talks that with the meeting’s theme, in Motion, selected for the venue which is the location of the Indianapolis 500 and the Motor Speedway.

Waters out that race cars and do more than thrill an 90 million motorsport fans in the States alone. In addition, have served historically as for new automotive technology, the place top-notch performance fosters public acceptance of the technology to be eventually in consumer cars.

That is proving true as EVs breathtaking speeds, puncturing about (slow) EV performance. In the 1990s, Waters helped the battery pack system for Motors’ electric car, the helped set an EV world speed at 183 mph; later founded Automotive, a company that a 100-mpg plug-in hybrid commercial vehicle; and now heads and Associates, LLC, a consulting specializing in global sustainable and housing.

Electric race have such a great for speed because they energy more efficiently internal combustion engines, explained. Turning gasoline motion involves multiple that transfer motion pistons to a crank shaft, to a through a transmission and other to finally reach the wheels. step consumes energy it can become applied as motion, or to the wheels.

In an EV, in contrast, the conversion is more from batteries to an electric that operates with friction (electic motor goes through a simplified and other mechanisms to the wheels).

EV often provide up to 15,000 per minute (rpm), compared to than 8,000 rpm for internal engines (consumer cars provide less than The high rpm of the electric motor the need for heavy and expensive

The bottom line, Waters is that EVs have instant the twisting motion that wheels, that has enabled cars to zip from 0 to 60 mph in less 4 seconds. Waters said, hard to believe unless you it. Every Tesla owner what I am talking about.

A limiting factor for electric cars on oval courses is speeds over 150 mph. Due to the energy consumed to overcome drag at those speeds, lithium batteries could last about 10 minutes a pit stop, Waters pointed

Racing in excess of 150 mph on high-speed will take a significant in battery technology for EV race or racetracks, to be competitive in the Indianapolis 500 or events, Waters said. there has been some about modifying oval so that EV race cars actually charge their while racing. It brings images of slot car racing everyone’s first racing as a kid!

Waters said.

Road-course which takes place on streets with turns and a lot of however, is another matter. such as regenerative braking, recovers energy to recharge the means the EVs can race from 0 to 150 mph for 35 minutes, which is a comparable time to internal combustion racing.

On road courses EVs already can compete with the cars in the world, Waters

With the dawn of new and advanced storage, we will soon see — electric race with instant torque that accelerate in a blink of an eye and top speeds of 200 mph or more.

And this will all happen an appealing but moderate sound, heat and absolutely no exhaust belching from exhaust And one more thing: It will race teams less to own and operate their cars they spend today on technology.
