Electric Car - Explained
How do electric cars work? What is an electric car? Electric cars use electric motors to power the vehicle, rather than an internal combustion engine. The result is a vehicle that produces no emissions, requires little maintenance, and is extremely cheap to recharge. With advances in lithium ion batteries, electric cars are becoming more and more popular. -- Related Videos -- Electric Motors: http://youtu.be/ErV5lGVso1w Magnets: http://youtu.be/7nhmJPMi4FU Electromagnets: http://youtu.be/1YSjRrijsRg DC Motors: http://youtu.be/kTkqbcesf10 Drive By Wire: http://youtu.be/Pgln9L5Y7sQ Please feel free to rate, comment, and subscribe!

Behind the scenes of building an electric car - The journey
Follow us on a journey of the successes and dissapointments that were tse_10. 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.

Do It Yourself Electric Cars
CCTV's Ginger Vaughn in San Antonio reports on build it yourself electric cars and its environment conscious technology. Electric cars are all about the 'three Es" environment, economy and energy.
Generator 230 volts AC dragged by a dynamo of 24 volts DC. This is an experimental model to demonstrate the transformation of chemical energy to mechanical power and then into light and heat energy, without neglecting noise and friction of the mechanical elements, lacks only the electric charging of the battery. Despite everything, this system has no value the purposes of production of electrical energy, it is only for vision and curiosity..
