Electric Car here to stay this time


Here is an interesting clip on the electric car posted by Danny over at " a Blog about " It shows that electric cars have really made progress, can achieve 110 MPH and can be recharged in 20 minutes... Amazing work...take a minute to look at it. This link will take you over to Danny's blog where you can watch the marvelous Zombie. A made in Oregon invention. Click here for the clip

Thanks for the clip. I have been watching the electric car closely and hoping it takes off soon. The Canadian Company Zenn and Eestor, keep claiming that they will have an electric car that will top 100km with a charge of 5 min. Wouldn't that be great!

Dave and Deb...yes it would be..actually Zenn has had a limited amount of success with their vehicle selling in the US and now approved in Quebec...but they are still a long ways away and I believe they are having trouble because of the limited speed on them. But we shall see and I hope they succeed.

Interesting. Will visit his site after work. Ya know electric cars may be the way to go but I never hear about how much ones electric bill would to up. We have solar and our electric bill is ridiculous. Hawaiian Electric says it's the price of oil. Go figure how ya win!

THe problem, of course, is what does the car cost. Build one that can go 100 miles at 55 miles an hour priced close to today's cars and it will sell like crazy. But we need people like this to lead the way.

Thom, yeah it is an interesting clip..You and I will never win in the end...they'll make you pay one way or another..lol
Have a safe shift.

Dr John,
You're bang on. Cost is the issue. The lithium/ion batteries are very expensive but I'm sure one day they will solve the problem

Baron,

Wait until you see Friday's post. An electric motorcycle that is getting ready to race at The Isle of Man TT.

Danny said...

Oh, and thanks for linking to me.

Absolutely fascinating. I wonder how long it will be before a practical electric car is a reality?

Baron's Life said...

Danny...I can't wait to see that.

Baron's Life said...

George,
I don't think it's going to be much longer now

Ann said...

OK, that was really cool. I would love to own an electric car. But I'd have to keep the loud HD. :)

Ann,
I don't really know if this will ever happen...but then again, you and I couldn't communicate like we do now, say 15 years ago
