2010 Chevy Volt


GM has presented its intention to offer the Chevrolet Volt electric vehicle, by presenting it. This electric car will be on market since 2010. Chevrolet Volt will be offered with a T-shaped lithium-ion battery pack that after few hours will be able to run 40 miles without any other charge. This car fuel will not cost that much (at least GM said that) and to turn it on will be offered a small gasoline engine to generate enough electricity to drive it on a long journey.
The car will go from 0 to 100 km/h in about 9 seconds. The battery pack is where the “transmission tunnel” would be in a conventional rear-wheel- drive car, meaning that the batteries don’t take up cargo space as they do in many hybrid cars. Although it has a rounded front, the back end of the car has a sharp, angular shape. In the rear, where air flows together as it trails off from the vehicle, sharp angles help smooth air flow.

Volkswagen Golf Twin Drive

Volkswagen introduced a new hybrid technology that we see in a series.
Volkswagen introduced the concept Golf Twin Drive which wants to join the constructors that bet on hybrid propulsion, as a future technology.
The model presented by VW has the advantage that has an electric motor that can be downloaded from an outlet power. The electric power propeller provides a maximum of 82 HP and allows the car to reach a maximum speed of 120 km / h. Autonomy’s Golf Twin Drive is approximately 50 kilometers, only the electric motor. The value is very good, given that most roads in towns (and back from work – for example) do not exceed 50 kilometers, so it can reach the level at which car to go only with electric engine.
To prevent situations in which the engine remain without electric power, and VW has installed a conventional turbodiesel, 2 liters, which provides 122 HP, which automatically enters into operation when the batteries were downloaded, or when there is a need for a power record.

Mitsubishi and Peugeot could collaborate to develop electric cars

Automobile manufacturers PSA Peugeot Citroen and Mitsubishi have announced a cooperation agreement for the trains run on electric cars, according to Financial Times.
The companies will sign a letter of intent to investigate, develop, produce and use motors, inverters and other electrical components for automobiles.
The second largest European manufacturer will complete a feasibility study regarding the production of vehicles, until the end of the year. The company discusses with more suppliers of batteries.
Peugeot declined to comment, while Mitsubishi said that “working together with PSA in all sorts of things.”
The pact will mark a strengthening of ties between the two companies, which have already plan to jointly produce vehicles in Russia, 2011.
Mitsubishi will next year become the first producer of large cars which will produce a 100% electric vehicle, called i-MiEV, propelled by the new generation of lithium-ion batteries.
Peugeot had electric cars in production based on limited Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Partner, Peugeot 106 and Citroen Saxo. Nevertheless, the cars had limited autonomy due its batteries, and Peugeot has stopped producing them in 2005.

The 700 hp electrical car

The British car producers are about to produce the most powerful electrical car.
The Lightning Company from Great Britain is almost close to the series production of a car that will probably be the number one favorite car for ecological aspect lovers, but this car will not drop the dynamic aspects regarding a sport super car.
The British are working at this project for a long time and they will probably succeed. The Lightning GT will have an extraordinary new design and the performances will be completely new for an electrical car.
It will have four electrical engines that will be able to offer 700 hp and it will be charged with performing batteries. The Lighting GT accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4 seconds and will reach a top speed of 210 km/h. There will also be available the base version with 650 hp that accelerates at 100 km/h in 5 seconds.
I can’t wait to see one of these on my roads!

Tesla Roadster with temporary transmissions

Tesla Roadster should be launched before the end of the year.
But it looks like the launch of the wicked-fast electric car will be postponed because the company is having some problems finding a transmission strong enough to handle gear shifts while the car runs at full torque.
In the meantime, the company is considering providing vehicles that feature “temporary” transmissions.
There is already one model built right now, but that one has been built for company chairman Elon Musk and Tesla is currently undecided whether to ship cars with the temporary units and then to replace them when a final transmission becomes available. I’m quite sure that a lot of people would buy this car no matter what transmission will it outfitted with.
