Electric Vehicles, Outperforming Gasoline Cars -



Electric Vehicles are any vehicle with an electric motor and battery pack powering it...

This also includes hybrid electric cars, which can use the electric motor for a performance boost...

Not Rocket Science - Electric Science

The Chevy Volt Hybrid Electric Car allows you to have the´╗┐ flexibility of coughing up for Gasoline or Electricity --

Chevrolet Volt Hybrid Electric Car Costs - Full Charge $1.50 vs Full Tank = $40.00

At the moment, exclusively electric cars have a lot of positive features, like performance, efficiency, cost, and coolness...

The major benefits of electric cars are zero tailpipe emissions, performance and silence

Electric Motors should be fitted to every car that is produced - Internal Combustion Engines, Diesel Or Gasoline or whatever, The Porsche 918 = 202 MPH @ 78 MPG - it proves that they can do it AND get PERFORMANCE and 80 MPG!!!

Along with the BMW i8 hybrid electric car which is capable of 160 mph and gets 80 MPG Definitely one of the coolest electric cars Or the Chevy Volt, with more than 90 MPG (Even though Volt drivers almost never fill up they just add fuel 23% of the time)

Electricity is the energy of progress, and you can see it sparking ideas for the future, like the electric cars, trucks, buses, and SUV's that will transport you inside cities, and between cities

At the same time, they also have some downsides...

One of these is the battery pack, which is heavy, and expensive...

And recharging can be slow, overnight in some cases, though great strides have been taken recently with lithium-ion battery packs that incorporate Nano Titanate or Phosphate electrodes...

As you can see from this discussion, the major areas of potential improvement in technology are in the battery area...

So the areas that scientists are feverishly working on are:

Battery Technology: And Lithium Ion chemistry, also Super Capacitors show great promise...

Also: Making EV's more energy efficient...

  • Electric Motors are already 75% efficient at converting electricity to motion...

  • Atmosphere friendly... Zero Tailpipe Emissions...

  • Better performance...Many EV's outperform similar sized Fossil Fuel Guzzlers by far in acceleration...

  • Better Noise Levels: Quiet and smooth running...
