Electric Cars

Most cars burn fossil fuel for energy. Electric cars run on rechargeable batteries that provide electricity to an electric motor. Versions of these cars are powered by either conventional household current or through hydrogen fuel cells.

Why would your car lose power and then kick back in if you feather the gas?

This is usually due to a clogged fuel filter (usually inexpensive to replace). It can also be due to a bad fuel pump, or a cracked fuel hose. Replace the fuel filter and see if the problem goes away.

Why would an electric motor on a 1986 300ZX keep going after the car is turned off?

the Fan motor will keep running fort a short time after the car is shut off. the motor actually gets hotter after it is shut off so the fan cools it for a few minutes before cutting off. Actually, on all the mid 80s 300zx engines, there is a fuel injector cooling fan that directs cooling air on the injectors for a specific amount of time after the car has been run at normal operating temps and then shut off. Is your car a turbo z? If so then the fan that comes on is the fan that cools off the turbo after the key is shut off. Maybe you have an aftermarket fan set up for the air conditioner, but there again they usually come on while idling with the air on, but they generally shut off when the key is turned off. The fan is not used for cooling the turbocharger. The turbocharger itself is watercooled and does not have a need for a fan. The electric fan is for cooling the fuel injectors as mentioned in the previous post.

How will the production of cars that only work on electricity affect the production of gas cars in the future?

Gas cars will be with us for a long time. As fuel prices continue to rise,(and they will) electric, bio diesel, hybrids, E85 vehicles,and propane, will be improved and refined to the point of offering a viable alternative to gasoline. When this happens ,we will see some stabilizing of fuel prices due to supply and demand,but however, gasoline vehicles, because of their range, convieneance, power, and developed infrastructure will be with us for some time to come.

How long does it take to charge an electric car?

This completely depends upon the specifications of the Battery used in the electric car and the voltage of the outlet that you are using to charge it. It generally takes around 3-8 hours to charge an electric car. Yet the new Telsa Model S will only take 45 minutes on a 240 volt outlet.

Why would your car have no power when you accelerate?

maybe your fuel filter is clogged. try changing it or cleaning it.

or if its a stick shift, you could be shifting WAY too early. if it IS a stick shift and this is the case, then you generally want to keep the RPM's between 2-3.5K for a decent amount of power for daily driving.

How much does an electric car cost?

There are two costs to consider when evaluating electric cars. The initial purchase price, and ongoing costs of maintenance and power.

High-end electric cars cost over USD $100,000. Examples of this are the 120 MPH electric car sold by Hammacher Schlemmer, and the electric Tesla roadster.

More affordable models include the GM GEM E825, at just under USD $6,000.

Hybrid cars, which switch between electric & gasoline engines such as the Prius, typically sell for just under USD $20,000

Well technically it is priceless because it is saving the enviorment

How do electric cars save the environment?

They do not. Indeed by using electricity from power stations they save

about third of emmisions. On the other hand, enormous environmental

problem is created by used accumulators, which will need a huge

amount of electricity to be reclaimed. Therefore, at first, we need

a renewable energy/electricity origin!

Pure electric and not a Hybrid vehicle then the Tesla Roadster ($115,000) has the longest range of 240 miles but they will start selling a Model S hatchback ($57,000) with a 300 mile range. The Nissan Leaf ($33,000) has a range of 100 miles.

Who killed the electric car?

"Who Killed the Electric Car?" is a 2006 documentary that investigates the birth, (limited) commercialization, and subsequent death of the battery electric vehicle in the United States. It focused on the General Motors EV1 electric automobile of the 1990s.

As for who actually killed the electric car, the film's producers presents a list of possible suspects:

- Consumer ambivalence to the new technology

- Car companies intentionally sabotaged the program

- Government backed the auto industry in suit against California and failed to act in the public interest

- California Air Resources Board caved to pressure from the auto industry

- Hydrogen fuel cells are a compromise favored by the auto and oil industries and government since it buys time for additional profits for "Big Oil".

- Batteries (limited range and reliability)

<><><>

There were some aspects to destruction of the electric car that the film did not go into.

The EV1 did not pass auto safety standards at the time it was introduced. The standards had been adopted some time after the time design for the car was begun. GM's response to this was to get the car standards waived for the test of the vehicle. In order to do this, they had to restrict the time of the test and promise the Federal Government that at the end of the test all the cars would be recalled and disposed of. The time line of the car's history would seem to indicate that the people at GM thought they might be able to convince the government to allow them to sell the car during that time, but, obviously, this did not happen. Anyway, it explains why the cars could only be leased, and why none was allowed to be left in the hands of their drivers. There may have been a conspiracy involved, but my guess is it had to do with GM people not wanting anyone to understand that the cars did not pass safety standards, rather than some dark mystery about how they "killed" it.

Where was the first car made?

  • In 1769, the very first self-propelled road vehicle was a military tractor invented by French engineer and mechanic, Nicolas Joseph Cugnot (1725 - 1804). Cugnot used a steam engine to power his vehicle, built under his instructions at the Paris Arsenal by mechanic Brezin. It was used by the French Army to haul artillery at a whopping speed of 2 1/2 mph on only three wheels. The vehicle had to stop every ten to fifteen minutes to build up steam power. The steam engine and boiler were separate from the rest of the vehicle and placed in the front. The following year (1770), Cugnot built a steam-powered tricycle that carried four passengers.
