The High-voltage Traction Systems Of Modern EVs

In the "flowmagazine", the online magazine published by the company nanoFlowcell of Liechtenstein, they speak about the danger of high voltage in the new high-powered electric cars, which can reach 600 volts, almost three times more than what is needed in our house sockets. This high voltage can be a danger of life, touching what should not be touched, but which also can be part of the causes of fires. It also obliges all accidents rescue teams know what to do and where to touch at…

Monty Hall And Sustainable Mobility

"Let's Make a Deal" is the name of a very famous tv game show where you choose. You have 3 doors, two of them hide goats, one of them hide a car. A very nice paradox to think about and perhaps a way to be able to say ... " aye! everyday you learn something new " But better we talk about it and let's try to help you learn something more...
When you choose the door you like, the host, knowing the door hidden products, try to give you goats... opening one door with a…

Electric Vehicles From Outer Space.

I read really nice news about Agneta Dahlgren Renault Group designer, woman of the year 2016 by the WAVE independent organization
Years ago, in a much more sexist world probably did say with surprise a woman was a part of the design team, as if it were a rare fact, without name or charge. Fortunately not only in the staff, she is the team leader. Future of technology is very promising because women are in the top of design, marketing, testing and competition teams with the prototypes.…

The Truth Behind The Confusion

How is it that some analysts put pure-electric car sales at hundreds of thousands in 2012 whereas others report a mere 60-65,000? At analysts IDTechEx, we feel that a lack of rigor is largely to blame because there are cars homologated as such and car-like vehicles that are not homologated as cars. The contrast is stark. Only 65,000 true pure-electric cars, homologated as such, were sold globally in 2012, very much a failure compared to the 1.522 million hybrid electric cars sold. However,…

Big Disagreement On Where Lithium-ion Batteries Are Headed

by Dr. Peter Harrop from IDTech
Lithium-ion is the winning type of rechargeable battery for the decade - there is almost a consensus. You can count about 150 manufacturers of these and IDTechEx has profiled nearly all of them. We expect 200 manufacturers of lithium-ion batteries soon, mainly because of the burgeoning number of Chinese companies making poor quality me-too-but-cheaper versions - notably the relatively easy-to-make small cylindrical versions such as the archetypal 18650 for…

Electric Vehicle Technology Changes Brought Forward

by Dr. Peter Harrop from IDTech
With hybrid and pure electric vehicles, the future is arriving much sooner than predicted. This is a surprise to those looking only at electric cars where sales in 2011 were well behind plan. Though Japan saw 25% of new cars purchased being hybrid or, more rarely, pure electric, other countries were way behind. However, in 2012, the eagerly awaited plug-in hybrids - from forklifts to cars - are ceasing to be production limited: it is quickly being realised that…

The Death Of Lead Acid Batteries

In historical terms, the death of the flint tool, cooking by dung and other bygone technologies occurred very rapidly. This was because several factors conspired to bring in the better alternative and this created a multiplier effect. So it is with lead acid batteries. To this huge industry and the magazines that write about it, there is a long term, if unspectacular, future for the lead acid battery in vehicles - the main use. Conventional "reciprocaur" car sales are still increasing…

Industrial And Commercial Electric Vehicles - The Next Decade

This article shares some of the research carried out in producing the new IDTechEx report, "Industrial and Commercial Electric Vehicles 2012-2022".
Those selling components for electric vehicles and those wishing to make the vehicles themselves must seek where the majority of the money is spent and will be spent. That must lead them to industrial and commercial electric vehicles because today these represent 60% of the value of the electric vehicle market.…
