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.

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.

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.

Toyota Nürburgring electric vehicle record setting lap - in car footage
Toyota has set a new electric vehicle lap record at the Nürburgring
Driving a modified Radical, dubbed the EV P001, Jochen Krumbach completed
the 20.8 km (12.9 mile) long course in 7 minutes and 47.794 seconds which
buried the previous record of 9 minutes and 1.338 seconds that was set by
the Peugeot EX1 concept.
According to Rob Leupen, Toyota Motorsport's Director of Business
Operations, "This is a very impressive achievement which really shows the
huge potential for electric powertrains to deliver fast, exciting action on
the race track. There's no doubt that electric motorsport can be every bit
as thrilling as traditional racing and it was an amazing sensation to watch
the TMG electric vehicle fly past on the Nordschleife, with only the sound
of wind rushing past and tires squealing."
As we have previously reported, the P001 features a 41.5 kWh
lithium-ceramic battery which powers two electric motors that develop 381
PS (280 kW / 375 hp) and 800 Nm (590 Nm) of torque. This setup enables the
970 kg (2,138 lb) car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds and hit
a top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph).
