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.

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

How Electric Vehicles Work - the technology underlying an EV
Electric vehicles take many forms and have many different technologies in
them, but there are some basic components that all EVs, whether a hydrogen
fuel cell EV, a battery-electric EV, or a hybrid-electric vehicle, will
share. Here is a look at the way these core technologies are used to make
several types of vehicle.

This is the first car entirely made by the croatian car manufacturer Rimac
The car is called Rimac Concept One and it's a full electric car: it has an
electric engine for each wheel and they can produce a total power of 1088
hp with a max of 3800 Nm of torque. The car can accelerate from 0 to 100
km/h (0-60 mph) in just 2.8 seconds and reach a speed of 305 km/h. The
autonomy of the car is of 600 kilometers. The price will be of 740 000 €
(around 1 million dollars).
I saw the car during the 2012 Concorso d'Eleganza at Villa d'Este in
Cernobbio, near Como. In my opinion the look of the car is quite good
except for the rear.

The Electric Revolution
With colourful stories, eccentric characters and evocative archive, this
timepiece documentary charts the up and down 110 year history of the
electric car. Narrated by Kenneth Cranham, the film features vintage
electric car collectors, EV designers and EV evangelists as well as
dyed-in-the-wool petrol heads.
The film examines the failings of early EVs, the false dawn resulting from
the energy crisis of the 70s and the controversial crushing of the GM EV1.
Lastly, as mainstream manufacturers such as Renault invest billions in new
EVs and governments invest in charging infrastructure, the film examines
why it will be different this time.

My Civic EV Electric Car Project Part 3 Our AC-50 Electric Motor Kit
2001 Honda Civic Electric Car Project. Our AC-50 Electric Motor Kit. Just
alittle video to show the components I have selected to drive our electric
car down the road. This is a well thought out kit that I have seen in use
and have seen relentlessly tested! This exact same kit and others are
available at http://www.evtv.me/
Our motor @ 108v at 650a up to 3800 RPM will deliver 121ftlbs of torque and
76hp. Its designed and works best in cars under 3000lbs.

Electric Vehicle Hits and Misses - Autoline This Week 1647
They arrived with such fanfare a couple years back, that you'd have thought
we'd all be driving electrics by now but that's not the case. In fact, even
today some manufacturers are reticent to even offer an electric option. But
that hasn't stopped everyone from the biggest OEMs to the single car
startups from designing and building all-electric cars. On Autoline This
Week John McElroy and his panel look at the world of electric cars, if
there's a want, a need or a business case to be made for their existence.
Joining John in studio is Csaba Csere, the former Editor-in-Chief of Car &
Driver magazine and Jim Hall of 2953 Analytics. Get more video everyday at
