I just saw that advertised on the telly. It would be great if they catch on, as it would mean not as much money spent on fuel

The thing about electric vehicles is that unless the power driving them was generated in a clean/renewable non-fossil fuel manner then they aren't actually any cleaner due to the inefficiency of burning fossil fuel in a power station and transporting it over distatance compared to burning it in a car engine.

Basically electric cars are useless until we stop using fossil fuels to generate electricity period.

^That is true, i've discussed this in Physics classes at school. It annoys me when they say on adverts that switching your tv's off instead of on standby will reduce carbon emissions. I can't see how it will because the powerplants will still be pumping out the energy and carbon dioxide.

i like the tail lights, but the rest of the car is pretty ugly.

and aerodynamically, it's pretty terrible.

This isn't true at all. Even if all of the electricity in them was generated by fossil fuel, they still get the equivalent of something like 130mpg. That's more than four times the efficiency of the average new car today.

Also, it won't be long 'till we've moved to hydrogen-electric cars anyway, so the point is moot.
Nope, no sig here.

Well power stations generate electricity based on predicted demand with an overhead so there's enough if they under estimate. If demand decreases over a significant period then they can reduce their output accordingly.

So yeah, using less energy would help.

That is true, but they make it sound that it will happen over night, which it wont. Ah well

Source? Electric cars are ~90% efficient, but if they get their power from fossil fuel fired power stations then the real-term efficiency plummets as the power station is only ~36% efficient itself.

I love any Z.E. car, its about time real money is put into advancing battery technology, and it's finally starting to happen because of them


edit

and I see they are using the battery exchange type model, it seems the best solution for the time being, and I hope europe embraces it, where I live is just too big for pure electric, but REEVs will be nice when they arrive
