DMC's New Electric Delorean -- /TUNED
Matt has had bad luck with modified Deloreans. But when he was invited by
DMC President Stephen Wynne to DMC headquarters in Houston, he couldn't
resist. In addition to seeing the massive stockpile of Delorean parts, Matt
gets to test their new prototype fully-electric Delorean.
Fiero electric motor transaxle first test
This is a major milestone in my 1986 Pontiac Fiero electric car conversion
project. After numerous delays getting the correct adapting hardware for
the new motor to the old transaxle, we finally mounted the clutch and motor
assembly onto the transaxle and frame of the car. With everything in place,
I applied a regular 12 car battery to the motor and amazingly, it ran
without a hitch! See my website (www.roboticmayhem.com) for more
information on this project.
Eliica - Super Electric Car - Part 2 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
RARE - Red DeLorean DMC-12 on Freeway
saw a red delorean on the freeway today. i thought it was pretty kool.
deloreans ive seen have always been metallic in color. i spotted him in the
"Golden Triangle" where the i-5 and i-805 meet in del mar, san diego ca.
Ford's Electric Vehicle Technology - Plug In Hybrids - Part 2
Plug-in Hybrid Basics
The plug-in hybrid provides maximum fuel efficiency by pairing a unique
high-voltage battery and electric motor with a gasoline engine. This means
the gasoline engine does not have to run all the time. That's better for
gas mileage. And better for the planet. The plug-in capability allows you
to charge the battery using either a 120-volt or a 240-volt outlet upgraded
with electric vehicle supply equipment. By doing so, you extend the
distance this vehicle can travel in all-electric mode. Its high-voltage
lithium-ion battery provides enough power to operate in all-electric mode
for short commutes. The plug-in hybrid also features a Regenerative Braking
System, which enables it to capture braking energy and store it for later
-POWERED by: Gasoline engine and high-voltage battery
-ELECTRICAL CONNECTION: Though not absolutely necessary, plugging in will
provide optimal performance
-FUEL: Will operate entirely on gasoline, entirely on electricity or on a
combination of both
-BATTERY CHARGED by: The gas engine, recycled energy from braking and by
plugging into a 120-volt outlet or 240-volt outlet upgraded with electric
vehicle supply equipment
-GASOLINE ENGINE OPERATION: Powers vehicle at higher speeds, shuts off at
low speeds and when vehicle is stopped
-ELECTRIC MOTOR OPERATION: Powers vehicle at low to moderate speeds and for
