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 0100 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.
Pundits criticized the 996's styling a great deal, largely because it shared its headlamps— indeed much of its front end, mechanically— with the less expensive Boxster. The 996 had been on the drawing board first and was a more advanced car in some respects, but the cost-cutting seemed inappropriate for an expensive car. Otherwise, the Pinky Lai-penned shape followed the original Butzi Porsche design very closely; the Carrera model had a 0.30 Coefficient of drag. The interior was further criticized for its plainness and its lack of relationship to prior 911 interiors, although this came largely from owners of older 911s.

Eliica - Super Electric Car - Part 4 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
Mini Cooper vs Porsche Carrera S 997
When production of the classic Mini ceased in 2000, BMW (the new owner of
the brand) announced the successor to the Mini—which is variously called
the "BMW MINI" or the "New MINI". The brand name for the new car is MINI
(written in capital letters)
In 2004 the 911 was heavily revised and the 996's replacement, the 997,
was unveiled in July. The 997 keeps the basic profile of the 996, bringing
the drag coefficient down to 0.28, but draws on the 993 for detailing. In
addition, the new front fascia is reminiscent of the older generation, with
the traditional "bug eye" headlamps. Its interior is also similarly
revised, with strong links to the earlier 911 interiors while at the same
time looking fresh and modern. The 997 shares less than a third of its
parts with the outgoing 996, but is still technically very similar to it.
Initially, two versions of the 997 were introduced— the rear wheel drive
Carrera and Carrera S. While the base 997 Carrera produced 325 PS (239 kW)
from its 3.6 L Flat 6, a more powerful 3.8 L 355 PS (261 kW) Flat 6 powers
the Carrera S. Besides a more powerful engine, the Carrera S also comes
standard with 19 inch (48 cm) "Lobster Fork" style wheels, more powerful
and larger brakes (with red calipers), a more sporty suspension, complete
with PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) which allows for
electronic adjustability of suspension settings, Xenon Headlamps, and Sport

Quimera AEGT01 at Motorland F1 race track
Maximum power: 700 ps
Top speed: 300 km/h
Quimera is very proud to announce that the AEGT001 (All Electric GT 001)
Shakedown, performed the 26th of august, at F1 Circuit of Alcañiz
(Motorland), Spain has been a complete success. During this Shakedown some
critical parts and concepts were tested with outstanding results (speed,
temperature, gearbox, batteries, BMS, mechanical solutions, cooling). The
whole team is now very confident to take the project further in the
development and to start the promotional and testing activities in order
to let the world know about this reference project.
The next steps are:
- Official presentation at Motorland, Alcañiz, Spain. the exact date is
yet to be defined but it will happen during september.
- Frankfurt Motorshow presentation
- Kick-off of the second phase with the introduction of further
- Two protoypes will be manufactured in the coming months and official
tests for interested professional teams and drivers will be conducted first

New Electric Cars Are Better
Just showing off some of the cool new electric cars and putting to rest
some of the myths out there. When people think of electric cars, typically
they think of older ugly slower models, lead-acid batterys, and BS
propaganda they've read slamming the "electric cars"(as though they all
carried the exact same attributes)
The battery technology has changed(and will change even more when nanowire
battery becomes common), the speeds have changed, the climate versatility
has changed, the prices are changing, the car companies are changing...
everything is changing for the better. I expect to see a lot more support
for EV's during and after 2010.

ZAP Alias Electric Car on the Road [HQ]
ZAP Alias Electric Car Debuts at North American International Auto Show
DETROIT (January 8, 2010) Electric transportation pioneer ZAP (OTCBB:ZAAP)
of Santa Rosa is previewing its Alias 100 percent electric sports car at
the North American International Auto Show, January 11-24 in Detroit,
Michigan. The display is part of the Progressive Insurance Automotive X
PRIZE, a competition with a $10 million purse for production-capable
vehicles that exceed 100 miles per gallon or energy equivalent.
The ZAP Alias will be located in the auto show debut of Electric Avenue, a
section on the main floor that will showcase electric vehicles and
technology. The exhibit area will feature nearly 20 vehicles as well as
symposiums and special events. For more information, visit
The Alias was designed by ZAP and European engineers. Powered by an array
of large-format lithium batteries, the base model Alias can top 85 miles
per hour and travel over 100 miles on a charge. The drive system uses a
compact, high-efficiency, air-cooled, AC-induction motor and carries an
expected list price of around $35,000.
