ELECTRIC CAR - Part 1
http://tinyurl.com/electric2-car It isn't really a complicated process to do an electric car conversion, but you will need to obtain certain specialized parts. You will need: an electric motor, deep cycle batteries, a controller, a battery charger, an adaptor kit, and various other small parts. But first, you are going to need a vehicle that you can do your electric car conversion with. Any vehicle can be used for this project, but some work better than others. Heading the list are small cars and trucks, as they are light and strong. Your first consideration as shown in the detailed plans is to find the lightest vehicle that will still do the job of hauling you and whatever cargo you carry around. Next, you will want a large DC motor that will produce power for your electric car. The larger the motor, the more power your electric car will have. Don't worry that it will be slow either. Many people have the wrong impression of electric cars; they accelerate as fast as any vehicle on the road and travel at least 50 mph. What about batteries? You will need to locate about 16-20 deep cycle batteries for your car as well. The plans outline sources of batteries, even free batteries that you can find with a little effort. The same source will probably have free DC motors too. It's just a matter of asking. Why do you need this many batteries? In order to achieve a range of up to 100 miles on a single charge. A controller is needed to fix the amount of current flowing from the batteries to the motor which determines how fast you go. The controller is connected to your old gas pedal linkage for smooth control of the vehicle. In order to charge your batteries between trips, you will need an on-board battery charger. That way you can just plug it into any common AC circuit and get charged up again. Doesn't this sound like fun? Isn't it time you got started on your own conversion project?





Think Electric Car test drive
The Think City Electric Car test drive was very fun, this is a small and affordable car that will be available for sale in the US in the next few months and we really look forward to it. The fully charged car goes as far as 100 miles and it's a perfect weekday car to go to work and drive around the city. The car was brought from Michigan to California for a special event and we were lucky enough to drive it. The Think City electric vehicle looks small from the outside but is fairly large and tall on the inside, I felt really safe driving it. It's a little noisy inside but nothing bad. The maximum speed is around 70 miles per hour (112 Km) and they didn't want to tell me how much it would cost but I have my guesses ($10,000 to 15,000) since, well, it's made out of plastic. Another benefit of the body is that it wouldn't get scratched. The car comes with a radio and has an option for a GPS, two things I definitely need! Other interesting facts are that the battery lasts 100,000 miles or a minimum of ten years, something other cars won't live to see! Lastly, the first maintenance check is at 40,000 miles. Think EV is a Scandinavian company that calls themselves "one of the most carbon efficient car companies in the world". I just took a look at their new Think City design and I like it much better than this one we test drove. I hope we'll be able to see them take over the roads of major US cities and our very own garages! What could be better than never going to a gas station, never having to change the oil and never having to change the filter again?! I also discovered that this car has only five moving parts versus a conventional car that usually has hundreds of moving parts, making it much harder to break and easier to find out a problem when it arises. With gas prices skyrocketing (will it ever end?) it makes me even more excited to drive cars such as Think City. Of course it can't be as fun as the Tesla but it's an amazing automobile.

HD: Test/Review of the Think City electric car / EV
Watch ElectricAid.org take the Think City out for an extensive and entertaining test drive. Over a period of three days, this electric car was pushed to its limits in endeavors such as mountain climbing and drag racing on ice. Music By: Arne Christian Skjævland Tryad : Struttin´ Silence : Cellule Blue Orange : Murder in a Garden Loupland : Runner Joe Transcript: Narrator: This is Norway. This rather small country with its renowned natural scenery, is populated by a fascinating but contradictory people. They're pretty modest and likes to mind their own business, but at the same time there is nothing they can't do based simply on the fact that they are Norwegian. They were the first to reach the South Pole and the American continent. They can beat Brazil 4-0 in soccer, rule the Winter Olympics and get 99% of their power from hydroelectric dams. So if you where to tell them that you can't run a car on water, they would probably say: Well that depends on how you look at it... It can do a 110 miles on one charge. Its highway approved, has a top speed of 65 mph. Best of all, this is not even a prototype, It's here. The Think City is an all electric suburb-to-city car that has it where it counts. Its Scandinavian design is minimal, but comfortable. It packs a lot of space for the city dweller. It's easy to maneuver and above all: its fun. We took the City for an extensive 3-day test drive and it surprised us a lot. But first things first: Driver: Trying to turn it on... Lights blinking all around, yeah! Aaand, I think it is on, handbrake is of, aand Yes, rolling! Fast yeah! It works like a charm. We can make quick turns without problems, its excellent. Photographer: Pretty aggressive, ey? Driver: It does not have a servo, but it has a very low radius in "the swing" so you dont have to push it far to get around corners. Its just like, whoo, and were around. Photographer: Its not called "swing" its called ehm Driver: Its not called a swing? Photographer: Its called turning Driver: Turning! Turning this car is quite easy Driver: Its not like an automatic, because it doesnt have any gears, but you put it in "D" and push the acceleration Pedal, and it goes like hell. So acceleration is very smooth and all the way good. Driver: Being a small vehicle you would expect the space to be small and crummy, but as you can see, me being 1.85 meters tall I still have room for my head. I can jump around. In the back we have excellent place. The trunk is very big. We have actually been able to carry our whole film set during this filming Photographer: Is it possible to have sex in this car? Driver: It is very possible to have sex in this car, if you would like to do so, but being that all the walls are filled with windows, creating a nice view and also creating a very open atmosphere, you will be spotted. But the space is here, so do whatever you want to do. Driver: Considering safety in a car that is this small you would think: If I crash I will die, but consider this: You could actually drive quite fast into something quite big and hard and come out walking.. Narrator: Ok so the car is named the City. So you would expect it to perform excellently in city driving conditions. But what if you had to satisfy the Norwegians lust for freezingtemperatures combined with high altitudes? On the doorsteps of Oslo and around 300 meters up, lies Tryvann, a ski resort that is heavily visited by the people of Oslo during the winter months. If we could make it up there and make it fast, we could be there just in time for sunset. We quickly realized how little hassle it was to get up the hill. Our mighty challenge was reduced to a tourist sightseeing trip. The driver became so sure of himself, he even tried to overtake the film car. Moments later we made it to the top. And although the task in the end was extremely easy we felt like conquerors of old. We got ourselves a nice cup of hot chocolate and reflected on the days events. This would have been the perfect spot to contemplate on how to get rid of the city smog below us, except for the fact that we could not see it because of the fog. So with that in mind we called it a day and went to bed, curious on what the next day would bring. Narrator: The next day it was of to the drag racing track, RaceWay Oslo. Its over a kilometer long and is located right next to Oslo Airport, and we could think of no other place to push the Think to its limits. But since its the weekend and the track is not serviced, its covered with a lethal mixture of snow and ice. When they saw the track, our camera crew went on immediate strike, in fear of their own lives. But the madness of our driver knows no limits and he was determined to take it for a spin nonetheless.

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 than 7%. 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 car.
