Top 10 Plugin Electric Car Makers

The electric car market is going to grow. It will soon be our primary means of transport, unless all the talk of a greenhouse planet and our carbon footprint has been in vain. It is amazing that the threat of environmental damage has been recognized by congress in 1966 and it’s a disgrace that it has taken us nearly fifty years to do something about it. The electrical car market should have been well established by now; it will probably go into the records as one of the major neglects of this generation. It has been said that no one is as deaf as he that does not want to hear, the fact is, there has been thousands of environmental preachers, but very few listeners and still fewer doers. I...

I mean, isn’t that double standards? The planet is in a mess, we hear it every time we breath, but when we do our part and do something about it, our well intended initiative are knocked down. So then, what are governments stance on this issue, are they encouraging green habits or not?

Electric Car Performance

Electric Car Performance

The recent surge in growth in growth of the electric car industry has resulted in significant advancements in the technology of electric vehicles. Prior to this, electric cars had difficulty in the automobile market because they couldn’t match the performance of internal combustion engines.

The fundamental challenge faced by electric car manufacturers stemmed from the inherent limitations of battery technology, in essence, the trade-off between energy and power. The total energy that can be stored in a battery ultimately gives an electric vehicle its range, while the power rating describes how quickly a battery can discharge its energy, which gives the vehicle its acceleration performance.

Traditionally, most batteries were good at one or the other – they had a good energy rating but a l...
