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
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

DIY Electric Car: 05 Transmission Basics
Building an electric car, we take a look at the transmission and how we are
going to use it for the EV Geo Metro. This video is an excerpt from the
BUILD YOUR OWN ELECTRIC CAR instructional DVD.
On this project, there's NO CLUTCH! Yep, no clutch. Most of what a clutch
does is disconnect the engine from the road, so you don't kill the engine
when you come to a stop. An electric motor has no problem simply not
rotating when you are stopped.
Remember, you typically DO need a transmission in a DIY electric car, if
for no other reason, simply to have a good place to mount the electric
motor! On a front-wheel-drive car, the differential is also built into the
transmission, so it's easiest to simply reuse the transmission to divide
the electric motor power to BOTH of the front drive wheels.
