Electric Cars & Charging Stations

Electric cars are a great idea for use in a city, but they are not good for long journeys because the lithium Ion battery only allows for a range of up-to 60 miles before the car needs recharging. Normally recharging can take from 6 – 8 hours to charge and that’s just not convenient for long journeys; though that being said if you working within a 60 mile radius you can charge your car during the day when you are at work, but you have to work in a city that has the allocated parking for charging your car during the day.

What if you work in an area that does not have a place you can park your car all day to charge, or you have to drive more than 60 miles? Do you bring a spare battery and swap them out? Well even if you did, you would still have to wait for the battery to cool down before you took it out of the car, and then fiddle about swapping the battery’s; there are some cars out there that have a backup battery included with the main battery inside the section of the car where the main battery is, but they still have to be charged after use?

A good solution is to use a hybrid petrol/diesel and electric hybrid, which will travel many miles using the fuel, and will be economical and switch to the electric battery power when in the cities and towns to save money on fuel. But the car is still using combustible fossil fuels and adding harsh chemicals to the environment from the exhaust system, therefore it’s not a viable green technology for the future.

So how do we combat the problem we currently face with electric cars, static charging stations, limited availability of charging stations, and the time it takes to charge the battery’s? The answer is simple, we make use of the new transparent solar cell coating that can be applied to any surface and apply it to the windows of the electric vehicles so they are able to charge as they drive; in addition to this we can use the electromagnetic harvester technology that gathers free electricity from thin air when the weather is not sunny so the cars are able to continiously charge regardless of the weather.

The new Ford Ka Concept (2016)

The new Ford Ka Concept five-door 2016 model has a classic outline, and has returned to the cool classic character of the original Ford models, of recent years; something that was changed when the first generation of Ford KA’s was released with a fun and quirky design for the interior, and exterior.

Looking at the newer model, the car is both longer and wider, so there’s more room in the boot, and the spacing between the seats is adequate for a car it’s size. From behind the wheel, the dash has a lot of similarities to the Fiat 500, but with better suspension, therefore the handling is sharper and more refined.

The car comes packed with cool features and tech, as you would expect to find in cars these days; this is a car that’s connected, and able to directly connect to your smart phone devices, and Sat-Nav system.

Ford have also included the SYNC-AppLink, which enables you to control your favourite apps on your smartphone device using voice control, or interface with the system using the radio buttons. This means that you can drive smarter and safer without taking your hands off the wheel, and eyes off the road; this literally eliminates the need to drive dangerously, as you navigate your smart phone device for your favourite apps; it’s even got a wide compatibility with select smartphone platforms.

The running costs are lower, and is rumoured to be a 1.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine, which will have an output somewhere around 100 horsepower. The pricing is expected to start at around £8000.

The proceeded victory of the Hyundai Genesis vehicle will begin with accessible all-wheel drive.

The aforementioned who want a legitimate car, be that as it may as well acknowledge the Hyundai Genesis two-entryway. While the present auto can’t fit a V-8 under its hood, Krafcik declares the taking after-gen Genesis Coupe might award control from a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 or maybe an indigenously suctioned V-8. In spite of the fact that Hyundai doesn’t recognize bargains of the Genesis roadster from the vehicle, Genesis bargains pale contrasted with other back-drive cars practically the same as the Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang notwithstanding the Dodge Challenger.
