2011 Nissan LEAF Test Drive & Electric Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/leaf/2012/ The 2011 Nissan LEAF if the world's first mass produced battery electric vehicle. You can get almost 100 miles of range from a single charge. Nissan really pushed the edge of design with the LEAF. The car has been thoroughly tested in a wind tunnel to reduce drag and the results are an ultra low and efficient 0.29 drag coefficient rating. The 2012 Nissan LEAF is a great driving electric car. The LEAF has a base price of $35,200 but there are offer large rebates available from the Government that will help to offset the high price tag a bit. The battery pack on the 2012 Nissan LEAF weights about 600 pounds and is located towards the rear of the car. This gives the car a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution. The result is a better driving and handling electric car. The LEAF not only runs on electricity which saves you money, it also is a zero emissions vehicle meaning there are no harmful tail pipe emissions that are normally associated with a gasoline engine. Heck there is even an 8-year 100,000 mile warranty on the batteries. The 2012 Nissan LEAF electric car is the future of the automobile in America.

2014 Chevy Volt Test Drive & Plug-In Hybrid Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/volt/2014/ For commuters that average less than 40 miles, the Chevrolet Volt is the perfect car as you have just enough juice to run on electricity alone. And for the 2014 model year, Chevy has knocked $5k off the sticker price. The Volt now costs $34,185 before and Federal or State Tax Credits. The Volt was seen for the first time back in 2007 at the Detroit Auto Show and today this plug-in hybrid is the best-selling car in the segment. The 2014 Chevy Volt has slightly better fuel economy and a slightly better range when compared to the previous year. On the outside, the Volt's styling is very distinctive and unique. Out back the taillights are stamped to look like a circuit board. The front fascia is very contemporary but with a definite Chevrolet flair. The overall look fits the Volt well and the shape is very aerodynamic with a drag coefficient of 0.281. Under the hood there is no Chevy 350, instead the Volt is powered by a Voltec Electric Drive unit that produces 149 horsepower and 273 lb-ft. of torque. After the 40 miles of electric range is used, the batteries are then recharged via a 1.4 liter engine that acts a s range extender. The car tested here has been optioned out to the max and includes cool stuff like: a leather wrapped steering wheel, heated leather seats, and MyLink Touch Screen infotainment system. That same system allows you to monitor all of the car's efficiency dynamics. The 2014 Chevrolet Volt is a 4-passenger hatchback that is surprisingly comfortable. With a full tank of gas you will be able to go 385 miles and on EV mode alone the range is 38 miles. Even though the Volt is a Plug-In hybrid car, it still drives just like a normal gasoline powered car. Overall the car is comfortable, spacious, and drives very well. Most commuters should really consider a plug-in hybrid like the Chevy Volt. See More Car Videos http://www.autobytel.com/car-videos/ Join Our Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/autobytel





WORLDS FASTEST street legal ELECTRIC CAR
SUBSCRIBE! Learn about EV technology: http://www.electric-vehiclenews.com/ 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 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. Datsun 1200 EV Specs: - Motor - Hi Torque Electric 'Siamese 8' Series Wound DC Dual Armature 8 inch - Controller - Zilla Z2K EHV 2000 Amp - Battery - 60x 16 Ah Hawker Enersys 'Genesis' Lead-Acid 360 Volts - Final Drive ratio - 4.11 : 1 - Weight - 2,450 Pounds (1,113 Kilograms)
