Electric car batteries could be greener says EPA study

Don’t Call It a DeltaWing: Nissan Cribs Innovative Race Car’s Designer to Build Similar Le Mans Entry, Adds Electric Power The car you’re looking at here is not a DeltaWing. the innovative, seemingly physics-defying race car that briefly carried Nissan’s name and one of its engines. Instead, the car pictured here is an innovative, seemingly physics-defying race car developed by Nissan. If this smacks of a rip-off, well, it kind of is: Nissan snagged Ben Bowlby, the DeltaWing’s designer, to pen its homegrown prototype using the DeltaWing’s basic layout. Oh, and the company added some sort of unspecified electric powertrain and promises a return to Le Mans next year under the same ...

Nissan s Electric Leaf, ease of use and price August 4, 2009 Nissan ‘s All Electric Leaf At this stage of the game, it is hard to gauge the full significance of the Nissan Leaf. One thing we can bet on is that it is giving a few car makers executive heartburns. Click here for Part I The gist is that Nissan’s careful approach to the alternative fuel car market might have raised a few eyebrows but their gamble could pay off. Indeed, the company does not have many hybrids, HEV to offer, but instead chose to bypass the HEV step by focusing on EVs. By doing so, it not only frog leap the competition, but the knowledge it gathers from EVs will surely help it design advanced hybrids. ...

Nissan s Latest LEAF Electric Car Ad Highlights Owner Advocacy As many EV advocates and early adopters will tell you, ad companies aren t usually that good at selling electric cars. George from Atlanta loves his LEAF. We ve got to agree.

Think about it: Every year, automotive engineers find new ways to smooth more rough edges off the conventional automobile.
