Electric cars Difference Engine Tailpipe truths The Economist

Difference Engine: Tailpipe truths GETTING the equivalent of 106 mpg (2.2 litres/100km), the Nissan Leaf electric car would seem a motoring skinflint s dream come true. Even an advanced plug-in hybrid like the Chevrolet Volt (Opel/Vauxhall Ampera in Europe), with an energy consumption equivalent to 61mpg, sounds pretty miserly, too. Yet, for all their frugality, neither has been selling particularly well, despite the present sky-high price of petrol (see “Priced off the road ”, July 15th 2011). With big-ticket items like motor cars, consumers have learned to do their calculations carefully.

ELECTRIC VEHICLES — How they work Electric vehicles are probably the simplest form of self propelled mechanical transportation. In it most basic form, the drive train of an electric vehicle consists of a battery attached to an off and on switch which is attached to an electric motor. The electric motor drives the wheels. Most electric vehicles have a more elaborate method to control the amount of electricity going to the motor as well as a system of gears to drive the wheels in a most efficient manner. In addition to the above, solar powered vehicles incorporate a solar collector which converts solar energy into electricity which is used to slowly recharge the battery. WHAT THEY CAN ...

Drayson EV record car Driven PistonHeads

DRAYSON EV RECORD CAR: DRIVEN Drayson is a Lola B10/60, up to the rear bulkhead And so I was walking around the stunning B12/69EV with Chief Engineer Graham Moore and asking the usual questions regarding basic specification that I could memorise for the in-car talking bit of the video. Removing the fuel tank and internal combustion engine and adding four electric motors with fuel cells rated at a potential 850hp has only added around 40kg. The power figure today is more like 800hp, which is enough to make me gawp slightly, especially given the calmness with which Moore delivers the message. And then we come to the matter of torque. Four thousand Newton metres, he replies with all the drama ...

Analysis: Recent California newspaper editorials #x2399; #x1F4AC; Marin has a lot further to go in providing convenient plug-in stations around the county. Many were installed over the past year, but Marin needs more. Today, there are only 73 stations — and some are sometimes rendered useless when other motorists use them to park their gas-powered vehicles. But more electric cars and greater public awareness about the stations should help resolve those conflicts. And more businesses will conclude that having readily available stations is a good way to attract shoppers. A 2011 report by the Transportation Authority of Marin outlined plans for a five-year initiative to install 176 charging ...
