Advancements In Electric Cars

 Q:   Ask a Question about Advancements In Electric Cars       
Advancements In Electric Cars Ever since the auto industry has been shifting from traditional gasoline cars to electric cars there has been lot of speculations about features and technologies used in electric cars. Ever since the inception of the electric cars manufacturers have been toiling upright to bring electric cars among the main lead of gasoline cars, but have failed in doing so.

Recently Fiat came up with the eco friendly, limited version of famous Fiat500 called the Micro-Vett electric 500. This car takes about 6 to 8 hours to charges and runs 70 miles in it. Also with maximum speed is 60 mph you can say it is quite an achievement. It also has 5 speed manual/automatic transmission options along with 15 inch alloys wheels, weighs around 1060 Kilograms and incorporates several other features.

Also Lotus is ready to introduce a hybrid in its fleet. This hybrid moves smoothly around the city without making slightest of noise. You cannot realize that the car is coming if you're not looking at it. But Toyota has come up with something innovative in their hybrid called Prius. They say that their car will simulate the noise of a car in motion so the pedestrians come to know that a car is coming behind them and possible accidents can be avoided. But Lotus has made a counter claim saying their car also averts pedestrians' accidents.

There is one other advancement as well from the house of Lightning GTS from UK. They say that the green vehicle built by them can reach the speeds of 60mph (100 Kilometers per hour) in just four seconds, which is phenomenal for electric cars fraternity. No one has been able to come up with something so fast yet. They say that their design has four individual motors for each wheel rather than just one common motor, and this is what renders their car high speeds and extraordinary pickup.

The manufacturers also claim that the car is installed with special batteries better than traditional Li-ion batteries. These batteries can charge themselves in just 10 minutes and get you back on the road. Isn't it amazing? Well, it seems that they are bent upon changing the perception of people's thinking about electric cars. It is wonderful as the world will get good electric substitutes for gasoline cars.
