New Materials - More Energy from the Battery of the Future | Tomorrow Today
Hopes are riding on electric motors to power the cars of the future. Their Achilles heel is the batteries. They're too heavy, too short-lived and take too long to re-charge.Now researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are working on a new type of battery that doesn't employ either lead or lithium. They're using metal fluoride to store three times the charge of current in state-of-the-art batteries.

Dual Motor Electric Vehicle Drivetrain With Powerglide 2 Speed Transmission Walkthrough by EV West
Here's a brief 10 minute video that gives a nice overview of the EV West 2 speed Powerglide transmission that runs without a torque converter direct drive to 2 coupled Warp 11 motors. Depending on the voltage and current, these twin motors can put out well over 1000 lb/ft of torque, and 600+ horsepower. We used this motor and transmission combination to power our BMW M3 to the summit of Pikes Peak in 2012 setting an all time record for street legal electric cars. The strength and reliability of this system is key. For more information regarding this bolt in drive train, please visit http://evwest.com for the latest updates.
