Nissan Leaf 2013/14 - testing the world's best selling electric car [Review]
http://www.redferret.net/?p=42084. The Nissan Leaf 2013/14 is the latest
model of the world's best selling electric car. The Leaf Tekna which we
used for a week, comes fully loaded with heated seats, heated steering
wheel, a solar panel on the rear wing and the typical features of most
modern EV cars.
We found it to be a pleasure to drive and surprisingly nimble for such a
spacious vehicle. More details can be found at www.redferret.net.
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. Check out our Tesla Test Drive

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
