World's First Electric Car Grand Prix

The French Pyrenees town that staged the world's first Grand Prix nearly a century ago now hosts the world's first electric car Grand Prix. Pau in southern France has seen many a race since 1901 - but none as quiet as this one.

All 12 entries used the same vehicle, the Exagon-built Andros racing car. Originally designed for racing on ice, the car can reach speeds of 112 miles per hour. Winding through the picturesque town of Pau, the 1.7 mile course hasn't changed much over the decades. Its winding route through the town has earned it comparisons with better-known Monaco. But it's Pau that has the honor of having hosted the very first Grand Prix in 1901. The resort in southwestern France, just 31 miles from the Spanish border, is a proven testing ground for future Formula 1 world champions on Formula 2, 3 or 3000 vehicles. For the die-hard motor sports fans raised on the roar of high-powered petrol engines on full throttle, electric car racing might seem a little tame. But others found the low-pitched whine -- a bit like a jet engine but much quieter -- a pleasant change from the ear-splitting roar of the traditional racing engine. Participants included Nicolas Prost, the son of France's Formula 1 World champion Alain Prost, as well as Fabien Barthez, the former goalkeeper who helped France win the World Cup in 1998. But neither could defeat the reigning champion of the Andros Trophy electric series on ice. Adrien Tambay won the race ahead of Mike Parisi and Soheil Ayari, who came in third.

Electric Car Can Travel 280 Miles Per Charge
A German company has developed a battery-powered electric car capable of driving 280 miles on a single charge. The company says the car can be made for a price similar to a conventional petrol fueled car - some very good news for the environment. For more news and videos visit ☛ http://ntd.tv Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Add us on Facebook ☛ http://on.fb.me/s5KV2C A German company say their new battery could be the breakthrough electric car-makers have been waiting for. The car should power a normal family car for up to 450km or 280 miles on a single charge. The company, DBM Energy, says their new lithium-polymer technology is lighter and more efficient than lithium-ion batteries. They've fitted them in an Audi A2 to demonstrate their practicalities. [Swen Streubel, Spokesman, L.E. Mobile]: "This is no miracle, we have all of the components which are available in the car and in theory we can show that it is possible to travel via electricity today and that it is suitable for daily life." Unlike other electric cars where the entire boot or trunk is used for the battery, the "Kolibri" battery occupies a lot less space. Last Autumn, DBM Energy drove a different version - a prototype A2 - into the record books with a 600km trip from Munich to Berlin on a single charge. The company says it used independent testers to verify the feat. The Federal Office of Material Research checked the safety of the Kolibri battery while technical services company Dekra checked the performance. DBM Energy says their battery has been examined and tested thoroughly, passing with flying colors. [Klaus Reindl, Spokesperson, German Motoring Club ADAC]: " ... this battery actually is very efficient. Whether or not that will actually be enough in the future for traveling by electricity remains to be seen but it is certainly a step towards how the future will be." Inventor Mirko Hanneman is positive that this technology could be the key to the future. [Mirko Hanneman, Inventor, Kolibri Battery]: " ... if you produce a higher quantity then it will be economically as viable as today's fuel engines." With tough new EU emissions targets coming into effect next year, all the major car manufacturers are either already mass-producing electric cars or rushing to catch up.





New Electric Car Unveiled in Japan
Japans Mitsubishi Motors has just unveiled its new i-MiEV electric car. The vehicle is priced at just over 47,000 U.S. dollars, less than other rival electric cars but still a hefty price compared to popular hybrid combined gas-electric vehicles. Plug it in, charge it up and drive it away. The new age of EVs, or electric vehicles, has come along and Japan's Mitsubishi Motors hopes the new I-MiEV will energize the otherwise slow electric car business. Mass production has already begun with over 2,000 on order. With Mitsubishi Motors' president saying output will hit 30,000 over the next few years. The president is also sending a strong message that electric cars are not only more economic to run, but also have less effects on the environment. [Osamu Masuko, President, Mistubishi Motors]: "We believe that EVs are the ultimate solution to atmospheric pollution, global warming and the end of oil. Introducing the 100 percent - electric i-MiEV onto the market will both test the pinnacle of current technology and lead the way to a new era." The I-MiEV, which gets 160 kilometers on a 30-minute quick charge, will be sold at about $47,600 U.S. dollars. The I-MiEV takes about seven hours to charge on a 200-volt outlet, and will soon be ready to roll onto roads in both Japan and abroad.

April 27, 2011 ... Better Place is coming to the continental USA within a few months. The prototype production in Israel and Hawaii was a great success! Get ready to 'throw away' the keys to your gas guzzling clunkers of yesterday! --------------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------- Better Place, Sheraton Waikiki and Hawaiian Electric Partner on EV Charge Network in Hawaii September 30, 2010 Better Place announced today the start of its initial deployment of EV infrastructure in Hawaii, with the launch of a project to incorporate its electric-vehicle infrastructure in Honolulu, in partnership with Kyo-ya Hotels & Resorts' Sheraton Waikiki Resort and Hawaiian Electric Company. The project will start with a small number of charge spots in Waikiki and around Oahu and includes seven electric vehicles. Better Place will manage the charging of the vehicles via a network operations center located in Palo Alto, California. "Hawaii's commitment to being a world leader in renewable energy, as demonstrated by the Hawaii Clean Energy Initiative, aligns very strongly with our mission to help end the world's reliance on oil," said Jason Wolf, Vice President of Better Place's North American Operations. "This project marks the beginning of our initial, pre-commercial infrastructure deployment in Hawaii. It supports the state's goal of leading the nation in renewable energy use, which Better Place will integrate into the grid via electric cars."

WORLDS FASTEST street legal ELECTRIC CAR

This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less than 7%. 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 car.
