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

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

BMW i3 - is this the world's most desirable affordable electric car?
There may be disquiet about its gentle rate of climb, but the electric car
has, at last, taken off. The BMW i3 is leading the charge. Could it really
be better in the real world than the Tesla Model S?

BMW, along with Tesla, is doing what looked impossible a few years ago.
Electric cars are finally becoming desirable. Maybe it took the power of a
couple of premium brands to help them on the way. Or maybe it's the radical
looks and carbonfibre structure of the BMW i3? Either way, EVs are here to
stay. And if the BMW i3 is anything to go by, they're here to be enjoyed,
rather than endured.
