New V12 Ferrari Hybrid Electric Car On The Way -40% Emissions, More Power and Torque...
Discover the evolution of the HY-KERS project unveiled at Beijing, adapted to a mid-rear engine layout. The objective of this configuration is to create a sports car that increases power while at the same time reducing emissions...
Chevrolet Volt Efficiency: 95 Miles/Charge The Volt separates itself from most other electric vehicles for one reason: You don't always have to use electric. If you so choose, you can use the backup gas-powered engine to get around instead of having to wait for a battery charge. The Volt has had a bit of a rocky start with low demand and an investigation into battery fires, but we like the idea of having an option between gas and electric in the same car.
Renault Fluence ZE Efficiency: 100 Miles/Charge The Fluence ZE isn't a sports car and it doesn't have some weird design because it's electric. That's what we like about it. The ZE just looks like a nice, normal sedan.
Infiniti Emerg-E Concept Efficiency: 30 Miles/Charge The Emerg-E is the only car on here that has been dubbed an electric supercar. With high performance, however, comes low range. The car does come with a petrol tank to extend the range from its dual electric motors, but 30 miles isn't really much when you think about how you'd use this kind of car. If you want some fun, this little two-seater beast will get you to 60 in 4 seconds and can go 130 mph.
GENEVA MOTOR SHOW: Infiniti's Halo Car - Does It Have The Panache To Run With The BIG Dogs? INFINITI EMERG-E is a range-extender electric vehicle, and it is propelled at all times by a pair of 201bhp (150kW) EVO ELECTRIC motors driving the rear wheels
Bigger than any other car company in fact - and by 2013 it’ll have four of them for sale in the form of the recently launched Kangoo Z.E. Van, Twizy scooter/car hybrid, Clio-sized Zoe and this, the Fluence Z.E. – the most conventional and normal of the all-electric range.
Tesla Model S Efficiency: 300 Miles/Charge with 85 kwh battery option As opposed to most other car companies that have one flagship electric vehicle and maybe a couple hybrids, Tesla is all-electric all the time. The Model S changes the entire electric scene, with ground-breaking range and performance. Buyers will be given three battery options: 40, 60, or 85 kwh. Respectively, ranges will be 160, 230, or 300 miles. If you go with the top choice, you're getting a car that can do 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and can get up to 125 mph. This all from a four-door sedan. What other electric family car comes close to that?
Fisker Karma Efficiency: 50 Miles/Charge The Karma is a mixed bag. We absolutely love the design. Regardless of whether it's electric or not, it's one of the most beautiful vehicles to come out in recent years. Unfortunately, the vehicle hasn't exactly lived up to expectations when it comes to the performance end. The interior is crowded, the car is heavy, the range isn't great, and it's been known to have some battery issues, just ask Consumer Reports. Once the company can refine the product it has, this will be a tough one to beat.
Tesla Roadster 2.5 Efficiency: 265 Miles/Charge Tesla is undoubtedly one of the EV leaders. The Roadster gets unprecedented range and maintains incredible speed, getting up to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. The sports car has a monocoque chassis and is made of carbon fiber, so it's incredibly light. If we want to have some green fun, we're heading for this beauty.
Ford Focus Electric Efficiency: 100 Miles/Charge We know what you're thinking. A Focus on a list of "cool" cars? Sure, it might not cost hundreds of thousands of dollars or have a flashy sports car exterior, but the Focus Electric is a solid vehicle. NASCAR even chose it to lead a race as the first official electric pace car.
The zero-emission Mercedes SLS AMG E-Cell boasts a power output of 535hp and 868lbs of torque, giving it a 0-62mph time of four seconds - that's almost as fast as its 6.2-litre V8-powered SLS AMG sibling, which makes the same dash in 3.8 seconds.
The E-Cell features four electric motors - one for each wheel - each capable of maximum engine speeds of 12,000rpm, with maximum torque available from "virtually a standstill", says Mercedes-Benz.
The problem with this approach is that while a gallon of gasoline is a gallon of gasoline (depending on the source, the impact can be higher or lower, but there's still a clear range), the electricity used to charge the battery can come from a wide variety of sources with a HUGE range of environmental impacts.
If it is charged from a coal plant, it might not be much better than a gasoline car (and maybe even worse if it's a very old and inefficient coal plant), but if it's charged from wind, solar, hydro, nuclear, etc, the impact from each mile driven could be extremely small.
This just highlights how it's important to electrify transportation and clean up the power grid at the same time.
One without the other is good, but not sufficient. It's even better to walk, bike, or take transit, but as long as there are cars around, they might as well run on clean electricity rather than dirty fossil fuels.
