The vehicles that are coming to the surface in the forthcoming years will obviously be different and it is an undisputable point that diesel cars are sure to become extinct. The world is showing a new interest in electric cars and giving more importance to them. It will not take too much time for electric cars to invade the world completely. The electric cars should be already seen in 2010. Instead of those diesel stations, we would be seeing a completely different loading terminal that will be bringing great benefits to planet Earth.
The concept of the electric cars is being seen as a complete revolution from the part of the manufacturers. Despite the fact that electric cars don’t have a proper market, most car producers are investing on electric cars.
They are investing widely on electric car research and jumping to provide their products to the consumers. They are not losing any time to bring forward numerous concept cars. In reality, a research carried by the Pike Research shows that the evolution of electric cars is growing faster than expected. Electric cars are being conceived and presented to consumers rapidly.
Nevertheless, the report by Pike Research also shows that the hybrid cars have the largest benefits and shares upon the whole market. No one does see a purely electric car for the simple reason that it will be too expensive and no consumer will be able to afford purchasing it. Just imagine the price of an electric battery and the cost for its maintenance. It is not something impossible but too expensive. It doesn’t restrict manufacturers however to carry out researches on a solely electric car and how they could cut cost upon it.
Even if many drivers are driving a diesel fuel vehicle nowadays, it will be electric cars that they will be driving in the future years. This is inevitable. These cars emitting less Co2 will surely surprise the world. The variety of electric and hybrid cars that have already been put on the market are already stunning drivers and making them wonder. It is a good thing that so many companies are working hard on electric cars for they ensure a competition. This competition will help in maintaining a low price.
For the present time, the demand for these cars is slight but as time will pass by, the demand will increase. I believe that the ones who will be able to purchase the first cars will be rich guys and if the demand is considerable, this will add to the price to get down. Hold on guys, don’t rush, you will have your electric car too!
The first electric vehicle will in fact bring us back in 1834. By now it makes already 175 years that the first electric vehicle had been conceived. Nowadays, what is generating so much interest and urge in the production for electric vehicles is the environmental issues. Media is focusing greatly on the global warming aspect which is bringing electric vehicles to be seen differently. These cars use an alternative source of energy emitting less carbon monoxide. The manufacturers show a real passion for the production of electric vehicles. The motor show in Los Angeles has honored the production of these electric vehicles.
You will find it surprising though that it has not been any of these electric cars that has received the prize for the least polluting car. There’s no grudge against electric cars but no matter what, the prices of the so polluting called cars are cheaper than the electric cars. Anyway, it would not be something of common sense to say that electric vehicles do not pollute the atmosphere. The media keeps focusing that electric cars do not pollute the atmosphere but many won’t agree upon it for they still have carbon monoxide release even if it is of a low percentage.
The price is most unexpected. The prices of the electric vehicles are comparatively twice than the normal polluting cars. For instance, the single seat Lumeneo Smera has been sold at $33,000. It accommodates only one person, that is the driver, and still its price is so expensive. Anyone would have chosen to get another car than this particular electric car. In addition, if the battery gets damaged, the driver will have to get another battery at 12000 Euros. It might be that the price will be falling as from 2020 but it is still far away. It is simply incredible the prices that they are selling these electric cars. This may result in a loss to the electric car manufacturers.
By luck, there are some governments who are offering subsidies to consumers. One of them, the American government, who is showing much concern about the environmental issues, is subsidizing the consumers as from $4000 to $10000 on the electric cars that they are purchasing. It will take time to cover up the market but however it is clear that it is coming up in the near future.
Innovep is actually a small company which has started gaining great value in the field of electric vehicles. It is indeed a specialist in electric cars. We are not so far from its creation date; Innovep was created nine years from now by its founder, Dominique Camaly. The whole idea was marketing professional electric vehicles to consumers and they have succeeded in doing so. They had in mind that the environmental issue about global warming and did see a better future with less pollution with these released products. It is already in the year 1999 that Mr. Dominique Camaly released his first command with all the required knowledge and it seems today a very long way that they travelled.
Yet with all these interest for the environment, electric cars have a different and interesting part to play in its commercialization. This is a part that Innovep has well taken in consideration. They have well targeted this particular market in comparison to other individuals.
The Flagship for Innovep was initially grounded in Rodez being the Diabline. The whole concept that they have put forward with the Diabline has shown the Diabline with very useful utilities and it has not remained just a simple vehicle. It can be used as a vehicle for travelling from different urban parts and there are yet many other places where it has proved useful. You can easily spot these Diablines in different part of the world.
The Diabline shows itself in a rather different way than the other electric cars. The main dashing features of the Diabline are the latter being robust and scalable. The Diabline is a flexible vehicle. However, Innovep doesn’t want to stand just in the Diabline’s production for they see further than this simple commercial and passenger transport vehicle.
You will be able to see this little piece of jewel on the forthcoming display in Paris which will normally be on the 17th November. You will be able to view its shelf load capability of 625 kg with the capability to sleep 6 persons. It also contains autonomy of 60 km normally moving at a speed of 55 kilometers per hour. What you will be impressed with will be the 0 g/km C02 emission and the space it occupies, just 3.79×1.52 meters square.
The whole story begins with Professor Hiroshi Shimizu of Keio University in Japan. For recall, the father of the famous Eliica, this bizarre electric car showed up a few years ago. This man who has over 30 years of experience in the field of electric cars (he has built no less than eight working prototypes) takes the lead of the conglomerate SIM-DRIVE just launched in August 20. The purpose of this company is the commercial development of a new revolutionary propulsion system. So instead of having a central engine that provides powers the car, SIM-DRIVE provides an engine for each wheel. According to Professor Shimizu, the system ‘can halve the energy required’.
Using this new system of motorized wheels, SIM-DRIVE aims to make an economical car (Luciole – Firefly) which provides a range of 300 km. Professor Shimizu even claims:
“I am confident that with the technology we’ve developed, it will be possible to develop a car which, mass produced, will cost less than 1.5 million yen. ”
With the current exchange rates, 1.5 million yen represents about 11 000 euros. But the car battery is not included in that price. For now, SIM-DRIVE has planned to release a prototype by the end of the year and thinks to achieve a production of 100 000 units by 2013.
Regarding the specifications of this electric car, SIM-DRIVE announces that it will have a range of 300km on a single charge. For the model to be marketed to the general public, rumors are stating that the car could be a compact 5-seater.
SIM-DRIVE has also announced that its project is open source!, As the goal is to improve the technology of electric cars. Thus, the technology developed in this project is freely available to all interested manufacturers. SIM-DRIVE only asks some financial assistance for the ongoing research on this project.
In addition to its electric car project SIM-DRIVE, also has in mind to develop a method to convert cars with internal combustion engine into electric cars.
You have some extra money and time? This guy does and this has allowed him to get on a challenge to himself. Norman White, thirty nine years old lives in Missisipi. What will be surprising to you readers is that the guy has built his own electric car. Yet he works on air conditioning. It should have been hard for this guy to do it however, over a year. The car entirely depends on electricity to move.
His electric car is basically a Suzuki Samourai that he obtained for 1200 bucks. He obtained the batteries easily since they are club cars’ batteries. There is another electric battery that he had to purchase from a store. Then he simply fixed them up in the car. It seems easy? Well it was not so easy for Norman White. Before that he fixed these batteries to this particular Suzuki Samourai, he had made attempts with many other kinds of cars. He finally realized that this was the best adaptable car.
There are many people who believe that making your own electric car is something expensive since the ones that are being presented cost some 60 000 Euros. Yet Norman White admits that it is really cheap. He should have spent less than 3500 dollars over all on the creation of the electric car.
Norman White says that his electric car is not exceptional even if he seems to be among the first ones to own one. He says that it is just a golf club car. Since he is driving this car, he has stopped using gasoline and the speed that it reaches is to some 70 kilometers per hour. Norman White is satisfied with this speed and doesn’t complain about the situation since price of gasoline seems ever rising.
There are many enthusiast drivers who would like to have such an electric car not only for a greener world but also for saving money that they spend on gasoline. However, the electric cars that the big companies are selling are expensive. Well, if you want to own an electric car as him, just don’t worry, you can do so. Don’t forget to get a guide though for not messing all of it.
Toyota Prius has long been the full hybrid electric mid size car which in reality was first sold in Japan in 1997. The Toyota Company will then attempt and succeed in a large scale production. Nowadays, this kind of car can be found in more than 40 countries and hence Toyota achieved monopolizing the market for it. It has been really a long period of time but now times have changed. There’s actually really tight competition arising from this industry. These Prius cars were being driven by most of the ecologist to show what impact pollution really has on the planet. You will also notice that there are many Hollywood super stars like Brad Pitt and the famous Indiana Jones who have a Prius instead of the other normal cars. The Toyota Company had a definite advantage on its consumers concerning the prices. They could fix the highest price possible and yet the Prius would still be sold for Toyota was then the sole producer of electric hybrid cars. This is what happens when there is monopoly. However, it is not going to be the same in future. The Honda Company has stood up in competition with its launching of the Honda Insight. It is somehow similar to the Prius.
The Honda Company has successfully hit to the right place, the price, this particular car can be obtained under 20,000 bucks. The car in itself grounds on a FCX concept. The new car launched is equipped with climate control, power windows, locks and six airbags. However what is essential is that there are two kinds of propulsion in it. It is a bonus for the drivers, a gasoline engine relay. If you hear someone talking about the “Prius Killer”, don’t believe that it is a newer one, it is how the Honda Insight is being called. According to the road tests that have been carried out on the launched car, the latter is being seen as more flexible in contrast to the Prius. The speed of the Insight has an ultimate horse power of 98 which reaches to 80 horses.
What is actually being heard about the whole thing is that the Honda Insight has been a replica driven from the Toyota Prius which is leading them into clear competition. There might be some differences but the main aspects of the car have been duplicated. The Honda Company however absolutely denies it. They affirm that the two different cars’ models might seem similar for only one reason. The reason put forward is that more Aerodynamics results in less energy consumption. Even if the Insight has come in direct competition with the Prius, Toyota doesn’t seem affected. The figures of Insight sales are inferior to those of the Prius model. It might be surprising if you see the real figures of sales comparatively. There have been only 10210 Honda Insights that have been sold in contrast with the Prius which has already reached the peak of 27712 cars. However the lap of time that Honda has made so many sales has been short and Honda could get more of its cars sold. Relating to the sales, the competition may seem lose but it is tightening up gradually as days are passing by.
The US automaker GM, who is on the market since a century now in Detroit, Michigan, is getting back to the news with its new big buzz for a curious online campaign. It has made millions of people wonder “Why the number 230?” Indeed, the new campaign that General Motors is putting forward gets itself represented by the number 230, with a smiley standing for the zero. The smiley itself takes an electrical socket shape, which has puzzled Internet users even more.
This has been more than a campaign; it has been a brainteaser for the whole Internet community. There have hence been some assumptions that the 230 mpg could perhaps represent the amount of energy consumption of the Chevy Volt. It has only been an assumption till now. If it really was what the campaign meant, it would have been a big surprise! Imagine that charging your car only once will enable you to cover further than a distance of 230 miles? Yet the “MPG” below could also stand for miles per gallon. It would hence imply the consumption of 1.02 1iters per each hundred kilometers. All the online world is coming up with suggestions as the whole campaign shows an over excitement. Everyone wants to see the car and what is hidden behind that marketing message. But the thing is, since this automaker is owned on 61 percent by the US Treasury, it should have enough investment for financing researches and come out with better marketing concepts.
We didn’t have to wait too long to get the first official explanations about the meaning of this campaign, given by none other than Fritz Anderson, CEO at GM. The CEO has hence made an announcement on the 11th of August where everyone’s doubts were cleared out. They confirmed the thesis of the 230 miles per gallon for the car consumption. This has actually been the result out of the researches and tests that EPA has been carrying out. Let me remind you that EPA, the US Environment Protection Agency, is the organization set up for a greener world which has dozens of labs across the United State, used for research and development issues. Well, let us get back to our Chevy’s fuel consumption. If you consider this fuel consumption measure, it implies that over a distance of 100 miles, it will be consuming only 25kw hourly, and thus tops up by becoming the first car to allow such a fuel saving concept.
According to Fritz Anderson, the Volt makes use of grid electricity as main supply for the boost of the car. If the battery of the car however gets depleted, the car will instantly turn itself into an extended range mode which means that it will be run by a gasoline engine generator that will be producing electricity in turn. This test has been held so far only in the United States, but if the same conditions have to be united in any other parts of the world to get such a result, Chevy could soon bring forward on a theoretical aspect an urban consumption of 1,02 l/100 kilometers.
