Who killed the electric car?


We all know about the global warming, pollution. It seems that all we see is a higher gas price. For all this, there is an alternative.
In 1996, electric cars seem to appear on roads all over the California. They were fast, good and run without gas. These futuristic cars were almost entirely gone. What happened? Why do we feel that we are hunt by ghost electric cars?

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.

In the beginning they’ve announced that Tesla Roadster will be on the market this summer, and then they’ve said it will come this fall, and now…
I believe in electric car’s future and I really think that they will be a big success, although not many people afford a $100,000 electric sports car.

Go-One3 Velomobile

Go-One3 Velomobile with electric assist is made by Beyss and it is a three-wheel tricycle that is considered the HPVhuman- powered vehicle.
Beyss has been manufacturing lightweight vehicles and velocipedes since 1991.
This velomobile can be expanded at 700-watt electrical assist motor, if somebody wants.
Powered primarily by granola bars and bottled water, this pedal-power personal transport vehicle is very interesting.
Go-One3 can carry some luggage on the back, if you are interested to take it for a little trip to the grocery store. It has high maneuverability, visibility and sustainability and may be purchased as a kit or fully assembled.

The final frontier: Aptera EV/Hybrid

People, prepare yourself to meet the future!
The final frontier is coming with the pod-racer EV by Aptera. This futuristic car is fairly conventional for an electric vehicle, strange by its look and tri-wheel configuration. Aptera will come in two powerplants: a Volt style hybrid with fuel efficient gas engine, which is supplementing the electric engine, for a far greater range and another all-electric engine, powered by battery, rechargeable at home, and ready to go for about 120 miles.

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.
