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

SOUTH AFRICA (January 29, 2011) EV DRIVE TEAM - On Sunday 23rd of January,
the EV Drive team tested their prototype electric Puma Sports Car at Rock
Raceway, South Africa.
"On the drag front the crowds went absolutely wild as the Ice & Dice Street
draggers went down the 1/8th mile strip in the old fashioned way Robot to
Robot style. A surprise arrived in the form of a classic locally
manufactured vehicle. Not one but two Pumas arrived on scene with the white
Puma powered by fossil fuel and a GREEN all electric PUMA SPORTS CAR
powered by batteries. Yip, that's right, an electric powered Puma Sports
Car made it's début at Rock Raceway surprising everyone by the amount of
power it can put out, keeping up to it's fossil fuel powered cousin", said
Abie Sada, press and media liaison representative from the Rock Raceway,
Lourens Terblanche , race driver of the white fossil fuel Puma Sports Car
and owner of LOURENS Exhaust fitment
centre in Vereeniging South Africa said " I don't like this hype for
electric cars , how must I make a living from replacing Exhausts...? Bad news for the Exhaust industry! "
On Monday 24th of January, some high speed testing was done at Midvaal
Raceway, South Africa with amazing results.
"I witnessed something very special. A Puma Sports Car was going around the
raceway without the usual noise. To my surprise I was told it is powered by
only an electric motor. Lap times were recorded under 2 minutes, quite fast
for an 'off the workshop and on the racetrack' version. It is refreshing to
see a car serving the environment", says Nino Venturi, owner of the Midvaal
Raceway, South Africa.
"EV Drive Team has broken new ground in South Africa with the new Electric
propulsion vehicle in the shape of the Puma Sports Car....This car has the
looks of a sports car with an inner of an electric train. The best about it
is the no roar (absolute silence) .The performance of the car was
breathtaking, not standing back for the fossil fuel car. On the track the
handling, breaking and straight-line speed was just as good as any other
vehicle. Amazing acceleration with instant torque on the back wheels .I am
very impressed" ...said Johnny Naude - Motorsport South Africa (MSA) race
official during recording session and data logging of lap times at Midvaal
Raceway, South Africa....
"The electric Puma Sports Car has adequate torque and power throughout the
rev range. I've found the suspension and handling good taking into account
it has not been set up for racing yet", replied EV DRIVE team test driver,

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
