10/16/2013, While electric vehicles are a great way to reduce our petrol consumption, the simple fact is that they take too long to charge and have a pretty short range before they require charging again. Well hopefully with more chargers being made readily available, more EVs will be adopted in the future and New York City is hoping that provide said convenience through the installation of EV chargers throughout the city.

02/15/2013, Depending on where you live, commuting can be a nightmare and that’s probably true for most big cities. To alleviate some of the road congestion issues, many use a 2-wheels transportation mode, motorized or not.

This technology works with the use of coils at the bottom of the car and […]
10/02/2012, [CEATEC 2012] Adding to the list of weird names for products we’ve seen at CEATEC 2012, we’ve now got the Toyota Smart INSECT. However, instead of a six-legged creature as its name implies, we get a fully-electric vehicle with aesthetic stylings that make it resemble one. The Toyota Smart INSECT (acronym for Information Network Social Electric City Transporter) is a one-seater car with two doors that flip up gull-wing style […]

Venturi may be having a shot at enticing more customers to the EV market when it announced a rather low-budget ride at the […]

11/04/2011, When you mention the country Uganda, I don’t think identifying it as a vehicle producing nation is right at the top of most people’s minds. I guess things will be changing for the better in the future assuming the nation’s first electric car, the Kiira EV, actually takes off in a big way. According to Mr Paul Isaac Musasizi, the Project Manager of the Vehicle Design Mission at Makerere University, […]
10/28/2011, Most of us would be able to resonate with the idea of airbags on the inside of a vehicle, but airbags on the outside? How is that suppose to protect you, the driver? Perhaps it is more of protecting pedestrians than the driver, but that is just my speculation. Humanix of Japan is the company behind this tiny electric car that has airbags on the body. According to Humanix, they […]

09/30/2011, Don’t you just love concepts that have been turned into reality because of one man’s (or a team’s collective) vision? Well, I guess the people behind Nissan’s Renault Twizy-based New Mobility Concept can be proud and lift their heads up high – considering their urban electric vehicle that was originally unveiled in November last year is about to be unleashed upon the roads in the Land of the Rising Sun. […]
09/29/2011, Electric vehicles are great as they’re zero emissions vehicles, but then again there is the problem of how long the batteries are able to last, and not to mention the fact that charging points are few and far in between – even more so when you want to drive to the outskirts. Well, having said that, electric vehicles also aren’t known to be performance on the asphalt, but Morgan and […]
