Extra! 300mpg Electric Car, GT-R Free Rides
This week, Driving Sports TV (http://bit.ly/dsp0rts) brings you another
Extra! news update. First, we visit the Bridgestone Proving Grounds where a
class of kids test their 300mpg electric car. Then, it's off to Portland
Oregon for a ride in a 600whp GT-R!
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.

50 MPH 8000W AWD Electric Offroad Mountain Bike First Drive
Be sure to follow us:
Dual motor e-bike reaching very fast speed of 47-48 mph in minimal space.
Bicycle as seen is running at 5600W with 2WD. This bike does come with the
option of running at 8000W or 5600W. We chose 5600W because we felt 8000W
is not needed and just spins the tires needlessly and also puts added
stress on components. The pull is quite amazing on this thing. This
particular video is the first impressions of our first ride. The space we
ran it is just slightly downhill but also around a bend so there is less
than 350 feet to really get on the throttle. Later testing on flat ground
yielded 50 MPH on GPS and Radar! Total system weight ready to ride is only
65 lbs! (29.5 kg!)

Eliica - Super Electric Car - Part 4 of 6
The Eliica (or the Electric Lithium-Ion Car) is a battery electric vehicle
prototype or concept car first shown in 2004 and designed by a team at Keio
University in Tokyo, led by Professor Hiroshi Shimizu. The 5.1 m (17 ft)
car runs on a lithium-ion battery and can accelerate from 0--100 km/h (62
mph) in four seconds (faster than
the Porsche 911 turbo at the time). In
2004, the Eliica reached a speed of 370 km/h (230 mph) on Italy's Nardò
High Speed Track. The team's goal is to exceed 400 km/h (250 mph), breaking
the record set by today's street-legal gasoline-powered vehicles.
The Eliica weighs in at 2,400 kg (5,300 lb) and seats the driver and three
passengers. The body was tested in a wind tunnel. The front doors open
forward and the rear doors open upward like wings. The car's platform
contains 4 tracks of 80 batteries, which make up one third of the vehicle's
cost. They currently require about 10 hours of recharging from empty to
full charge, and can be easily charged off a residential power grid.
The car has eight wheels enabling it to be closer to the ground for better
traction. Each of the wheels has a 60 kW (80 hp) electric motor, giving a
480 kW (640 hp) eight wheel drive which can tackle all kinds of road
surfaces. The four front wheels steer. The electric motors mean that the
Eliica can deliver a smooth acceleration free from gear shifts of about 0.8
g. Each wheel contains a disc brake and employs a regenerative brake system
to recover energy.
There are currently (as of 2005) two versions of the Eliica: a Speed model
and an Acceleration model. The Speed model is made to challenge
gasoline-based records and has a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph) with a
range of 200 km (120 mi). The Acceleration model is made for the street and
has a top speed of 190 km/h (120 mph) with a range of 320 km (200 mi).
The estimated cost of development was in excess of US$320,000. Once the
team receives corporate sponsorship, they plan to produce at least 200
units. As of early 2007, the projected price was ¥30,000,000 JPY (about
