With similar specifications as the Tesla Roadster, Liv Inizio is an electric sports car made by EV Innovations formerly known as Hybrid Technologies.
Few people know about Magna. Magna is an Austrian car company that recently showed the MILA EV concept, an electric car. What is the connection with BMW?
Arizona is the testing ground for a new electric car charge network Nissan is going to develop.
The project is being created with ECOtality and Pima government association and is going to provide the electric support for the new electric cars Nissan will lauch in the US next year.
I happen to be an electric car enthusiast. I like the idea of driving clean and having silent power underneath me. It’s been talked about project Better Place lately, as being a system who uses a battery swapping infrastructure. IBM and the Danish government have involved in such a project and found it reliable. Mercedes, on the other hand, says they have tested the system in the 70s and found out it’s not so safe.
Norwegian EV maker TH!NK has come up with a new plan to manufacture their plastic-body city cars in U.S.
Though some say electric cars will keep away from our daily usage for the next couple of decades, Nissan people have decided they will not pursue the same trend with the majority, and will switch from hydrogen or hybrid cars to purely electric ones (battery powered).
Every electric motor has a force that opposes the propelling electromagnetic field inside it, called “Back EMF”. Thane Heins succeeded to recover this back-EMF and, instead of letting it cause resistance, he transformed it into useful power. This claim has brought him opposition for many years from the scientific community, because it seems to violate Lenz’s law.
Reva Electric Car Company has started the development of the second model after the small Reva. The new car will be on the market this year and the company has big plan to “conquer” new markets overseas.
MIT engineers have been developing and are now testing an upgrade to the old bicycle that can be easily installed and that can transform your foot-powered 2-wheeler into a full-electric vehicle (or hybrid, if you use your own force).
Tazzari Group developed a simple but in the same time elegant electric vehicle Tazzari Zero EV. The vehicle wants to qualify as a sports-car for the city, being very light, with high torques and fully recyclable.
I was saying the other year that Denmark is powered mostly by its wind farms, and that the energy generated by these wind farms is in excess. They want to build an electric car network that would operate across the country and that would use the excess energy and transport it to propel people from here to there, cheaply and in an environmentally friendly fashion.
UK researchers from the University of Nottingham and General Motors from Warren, Michigan, have invented a hydrogen tank material that could replace the current heavy and inefficient pressurized tubes used in today’s hydrogen-powered cars.
The car is called S18 (Chinese people like coding the names, like they did to the BYD F3DM electric car), and, if the promises are kept until the launch, its price will be reasonable and the performance will also be suited for a family car.
In June last year, everyone may have heard the buzz about a japanese water car. The buzz was about Genepax, a company from Japan who had claimed that they invented a revolutionary system that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen and then uses a fuel cell to recombine it and generate electricity. That electricity would have driven a car, fact that they demonstrated in front of the press at that time.
San Francisco wants to become one of the major green cities in the world by installing electric vehicle charging station.
In Frankfurt – Germany, Europe’s biggest car manufacturer, Volkswagen and the Japanese group Toshiba signed an agreement to develop the new VW electric cars together.
