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
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

BMW i3 - is this the world's most desirable affordable electric car?
There may be disquiet about its gentle rate of climb, but the electric car
has, at last, taken off. The BMW i3 is leading the charge. Could it really
be better in the real world than the Tesla Model S?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://smarturl.it/autocar
BMW, along with Tesla, is doing what looked impossible a few years ago.
Electric cars are finally becoming desirable. Maybe it took the power of a
couple of premium brands to help them on the way. Or maybe it's the radical
looks and carbonfibre structure of the BMW i3? Either way, EVs are here to
stay. And if the BMW i3 is anything to go by, they're here to be enjoyed,
rather than endured.

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
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.
