A Day in the Life of an Electric Car
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) In the very near future will we all be driving
electric cars? That's a question that only 10 years ago seemed like a
dream, but today with all electric cars like the 2012 Nissan Leaf, it
doesn't seem so far fetched. Of course unlike, gasoline powered cars,
electric cars can't be filled up at your local gas station in a few
minutes. Once they run our of juice...you are well and truly stuck. This is
called range anxiety and it can be all too real. We decide to find out just
how real by spending a day in the life of the all new Nissan Leaf.
Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were
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.

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.

2010 Mitsubishi i Review - Kelley Blue Book
Mitsubishi is set to throw its hat in the electric car ring with a new
model called the "i". The vehicle is based on the i-MiEV currently sold in
Japan and Europe. For American tastes the name was shortened to a single
lower-case letter while the vehicle itself was lengthened and widened to
meet American tastes and crash standards. The Mitsubishi i electric car
will go on sale starting in the end of 2011 but Kelley Blue Book got an
early test drive in Japan, an adventure retold in this video.

Make Your Own Electric Car
Meet Mike Farlow of Ingersoll Ontario, who has always been way ahead of the
curve when it comes to electricity. Surprisingly, you'll see just how easy
it is to make and drive in a homemade electric jeep! According to Mike,
it's not complex technology and it's been around for about 100 years! Start
Mike has been a long time resident of Ingersoll, Ontario. Mike has two
electric vehicles, as well as solar panels and a homemade wind turbine, all
of which have contributed to a dramatic decrease in his residential day to
day energy costs while drawing the curiosity and interest of the public
over the years. "You don't have to hug a tree to enjoy the savings you can
get from green technology."

Welcome to AutoMotoTube!!!
On this channel you will find videos of cars, motorcycles, motorboats,
yachts, motor homes and everything that moves on wheels or in the water. In
most of my short videos (2-5min), I take a look at the exterior design and
interior arrangements of the vehicle, so you can receive general idea and
appreciation of certain brand or model. My coverage is from Auto, Moto,
Boat shows and dealerships from Montreal, Toronto and New York City areas
and I have more than 900 High Definition videos, organized in playlist. To
find a video of a certain model in my channel, just write the brand and
model name in the search bar above, or have a look in my playlist. I am
trying to constantly improve the quality of my videos, so you can enjoy in
a better way all these beautiful pieces of machinery!

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
- Two protoypes will be manufactured in the coming months and official
tests for interested professional teams and drivers will be conducted first

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
