Toshiba Plans Developing Electric Buses With Five-Minutes Recharge Time

Electric buses are still not very common but they may be so in the coming days. Toshiba has announced plans that it will be developing such electric buses which will take a mere five minutes to recharge. This can be a huge step forward in electric-power-based vehicles. According to Toshiba, this will be 1/4th of the time taken by the lithium-ion cells to recharge.

Paying $100 Yearly Gas Tax On EV Is Unfair, Washington Should Remove It

Paying $100 Yearly Gas Tax On EV Is Unfair, Washington Should Remove It

Washington has been facing a lot of criticism both internal and external about the bills it has been passing and trying to pass. Just last month, a bill that will charge electric car owners $100 per year was passed by the Washington State Senate in the hope that it will compensate for not paying gas taxes according to CNET. It is similar to finding ways of taxing on those commodities that one does not possess or use in any way or form. In fact, this passed bill is beyond ridiculous, it is cruel to say the least. Its basic logical is faulty and does not make any sense.

BYD e6 Pure-Electric Vehicle Available In China

BYD e6 Pure-Electric Vehicle Available In China

The Chinese BYD e6 is somewhat a staple of Shenzhen taxi companies, racking up a combined 3.8 million miles since its introduction and there is now an electric e6 with a range of 190 miles, which recently started selling in China. The car is a five-passenger tall wagon and is on track to increase electric vehicle sales in China from 33,000 last year to 554,000 by 2015 and BYD is working with China Southern Grid, a utility company, to distribute home-based vehicle charging stations. The current line of electric e6s cost about $57 grand, but due to government subsidies, a growing Chinese middle class will be able to purchase the cars for around $38,000 and BYD hopes that an early profit loss this year will be solved in part by the US launch and the e6 and also BYD is set to far eclipse Japanese car makers in the EV business for the Asia Pacific region………………….

Fisker Karma Receives EPA Certification For Sale

Fisker Karma Receives EPA Certification For Sale

Fisker Automotive said it has begun selling its 2012 Karma luxury plug-in hybrid car, following certification this week by the Environmental Protection Agency and the low-slung four-door sports car, which is a bit like the spawn of a Chevrolet Volt and an Aston Martin Rapide. Fisker had predicted a rating of 67 mpge and an all-electric range of 50 miles, the EPA disagreed, certifying the car with 52 mpge, a range of 32 miles and 20 mpg in gasoline mode after that. EPA certification is the final hurdle preventing Fisker from selling the Karma in the US and since the numbers are finally in, the company will start importing the cars now-ish with the first 39 arriving on our shores from Finland in about 2 weeks………………….
