WORLDS FASTEST street legal ELECTRIC CAR

Worlds fastest street legal ELECTRIC CAR 1972 Datsun 1200 Whtie Zombie.
This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

New Electric Cars Are Better
Just showing off some of the cool new electric cars and putting to rest
some of the myths out there. When people think of electric cars, typically
they think of older ugly slower models, lead-acid batterys, and BS
propaganda they've read slamming the "electric cars"(as though they all
carried the exact same attributes)
The battery technology has changed(and will change even more when nanowire
battery becomes common), the speeds have changed, the climate versatility
has changed, the prices are changing, the car companies are changing...
everything is changing for the better. I expect to see a lot more support
for EV's during and after 2010.

Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

Audi e-tron mark II
Following on from its wow factor appeal at the Frankfurt motor show last
September, the next model e-tron from Audi was unveiled at the 2010 Detroit
auto show (NAIAS) and is aptly called the Detroit show Audi e-tron, or
e-tron Mark II. It is more compact than its predecessor with a much shorter
wheelbase and gross weight has been cut to 1,350 kg. Two electric motors
with a combined output of 150 kW (204 hp) and 2,650 Nm (1954.54 lb-ft)
accelerate the coupe with ASF-design aluminum body from 0 to 100 km/h in
just 5.9 seconds.
2015 560-HP Audi RS6 Avant Review - Fast Lane Daily
The Audi RS6 is no ordinary wagon (or Avant if you prefer) with 560 horsepower and a 0 to 60
time under 4 seconds - it's arguably one of the best looking wagons on the
market available today. Sarah Sauer takes this roaring machine for ride on
some pretty roads and of course the famed Autobahn, check it out!

Volvo Car's Electric Hybrid
Volvo's ReCharge Concept, a plug-in hybrid with individual electric wheel
motors, can drive an estimated 100 kilometers before the vehicle's
four-cylinder Flexifuel engine is needed to power the car and recharge the
battery. When driving beyond the car's battery life, fuel consumption may
vary from 0 to 5.5 liters per 100 km depending on the distance driven.
Volvo researchers say the ReCharge Concept can lower carbon dioxide
emissions by an estimated 66 percent compared to other hybrids. In addition
to operating on battery energy, the ReCharge Concept can also accelerate
from zero to 100 km/h in 9 seconds and reach top speeds of 160 km/h. The
vehicle, which will debut in a specially-designed Volvo C30 at the IAA
motor show in Frankfurt, was developed at the Volvo Monitoring and Concept
Center in Camarillo, CA.

2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

2014 Aerodynamic, stealth-jet-inspired Nissan BladeGlider electric car concept
The Nissan BladeGlider electric car concept is designed to mimic the
aerodynamics of a glider and a stealth plane, featuring a distinct
triangular shape and and a carbon-fiber underbody. The lightweight,
aerodynamic three-seater is ready for the racetrack, allowing for tight
cornering thanks to its narrow front end. Currently just a concept car, the
BladeGlider is expected to make its way into production in some form in the
Inspiration for the BladeGlider is drawn from the sky, with designers
incorporating the aerodynamics of a glider as well as the shape of swept
wing jets.he BladeGlider achieves its aerodynamic prowess by mirroring the
narrow front end of performance jets—about three feet separate the car's
front wheels. The tight configuration also helps shift the center of
gravity to the rear, helping for high-speed cornering.
Power comes from lithium-ion battery modules that sit low in the car's
rear, adding to its stability and keeping the vehicle whisper quiet.
The BladeGlider's driver's seat slides out automatically when the door is
opened, allowing passengers easy access to the rear seats.
"BladeGlider was conceived around delivering a glider-like exhilaration
that echoes its lightweight, downsized hyper-efficient aerodynamic form,"
said Shiro Nakamura, Nissan's senior vice president and chief creative

"This design is more than revolutionary; it's transformational, applying
our most advanced electric drive-train technology and racetrack-inspired
styling in the service of a new dimension of shared driving pleasure."
Inside, a space-age cockpit includes a glowing dashboard and a fighter
jet-style steering wheel. The driver's seat itself boasts race car looks
and automatically slides out for access to the two rear passenger seats.

While the BladeGlider may look like it has rolled off the set of a sci-fi
movie, don't be shocked to see it rolling down the streets. Nissan says
that three-seater serves as a prototype of an upcoming production vehicle,
meaning that this glider should see the streets—in some form—at some
point in the near future.
