EV West isn't like other electric car builders. They aren't trying to save the planet from gasoline emissions, they are trying to build race cars using electric technology for events that can best use that technology. The Pikes Peak International Hillclimb, with a total driving distance of under 20 miles at very high elevation, is one of those events. We take their Pike's Peak M3 to the Dyno to find out what 400 Kilowatts means in horsepower, then to see how it drives.





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)

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2 speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current, these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more information regarding this bolt in drive train, please visit http://evwest.com for the latest updates.

Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were tse_10. Team Swinburne Electric 2010, AKA tse_10, was the first year a group of Swinburne engineering students endevoured to develop and build an Electric Vehicle for the Formula SAE competition. The team hit trouble when they blew up their motor controller, just over a week before the competition. The team then borrowed another motor controller which also ended up blowing. The team then borrowed ANOTHER motor controller, to which they had some success, until the night before the competition, when it also blew up. In total the team blew up 3x $4,000 controllers, 6 times (after repairs). It is thought that the motor is faulty and is causing the issues.

Tango v Tesla @ Infineon Nov 30th
On Nov 30th, the fastest production electric vehicles in the U.S. went head-to-head. While their first meeting had a number of issues, most notably the underfilled Tango battery pack, and the Tesla's non-upgraded drivetrain, the 1/4 mile time is quite close and indicative of races to come. In this race, the Tango got 92.15mph in 14.480 seconds, beating its 14.7 "dial" handicap and thus losing the competition; the Tesla got 101.23mph in 14.666 seconds, slower than its 14.5 "dial" handicap and allowing it to proceed to the next round. (Two rounds later, the Tango's driver got behind the wheel of the Tesla and also beat its "dial" handicap... and thus lost!) Epilogue: the cars compete in different voltage classes, and thus both were able to set NEDRA records for fastest production electric vehicle that day. See http://www.nedra.com/record_holders.html The previosu NEDRA record for production electric vehicle was the GM EV-1, at 16.26 seconds and 78.76mph

The most powerful electric car on earth ! Professionals only ! www.quimerarr.com
Join us at www.quimerarr.com Quimera AEGT01 at Motorland F1 race track Maximum power: 700 ps Top speed: 300 km/h Quimera is very proud to announce that the AEGT001 (All Electric GT 001) Shakedown, performed the 26th of august, at F1 Circuit of Alcañiz (Motorland), Spain has been a complete success. During this Shakedown some critical parts and concepts were tested with outstanding results (speed, temperature, gearbox, batteries, BMS, mechanical solutions, cooling). The whole team is now very confident to take the project further in the development and to start the promotional and testing activities in order to let the world know about this reference project. The next steps are: - Official presentation at Motorland, Alcañiz, Spain. the exact date is yet to be defined but it will happen during september. - Frankfurt Motorshow presentation - Kick-off of the second phase with the introduction of further improvements. - Two protoypes will be manufactured in the coming months and official tests for interested professional teams and drivers will be conducted first quarter 2012
