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

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

Electric Factory Five 818 Project - Track Shakedown - EV West / 33 Machine
In this introduction video of the Electric 818 car by EV West and 33
Machine, we take it out to Adams Motorsport Park for an initial shakedown.
The car is powered by a HPEVS AC2-35 dual AC motor setup running at 144kW.
The car has 16kWh of capacity, and can drive about 60-70 miles on it's
lightweight lithium ion battery pack. Recharging is done through an onboard
5000kW charger, and is public charge station compatible, making this street
legal electric rocket ship a great way to run around town, and still have
track-worthy performance. The current weight of the car is 1700 pounds, but
it still needs just under 250 pounds of bodywork added to the car giving an
estimated final weight of 1950 pounds. For those looking for more
information on this project, please visit EVWest.com or 33machine.com
