This thread is dedicated solely to past, present, and future 100% battery electric vehicle technology/research/advocacy and 100% battery electric vehicles capable of transporting humans and or cargo. I'm requesting that the moderator strictly enforce the topic.
I'll begin with two humble, converted Volkswagens (Praise be unto them!):
Electric Karman Ghia
"Sparky" The VOLTS Wagen
Ex-Intel chief charged up by electric cars
Former Intel Corp. chairman Andy Grove has a knack for sensing when circumstances should force changes at a company or an industry — and how to respond.
He even has coined a term for it: the "strategic inflection point." Now the retired chairman of the world's largest computer chip maker thinks the term applies to energy and transportation, where record-high gasoline and oil prices have spurred interest in alternative energy sources and next-generation vehicles.
During the past year and a half, Grove has created his own crash course in electric power, plug-in hybrid vehicles and finding ways of shifting vehicles from gasoline. His goal: To draw more attention to electric vehicles.
"The most important thing I would like to do is light that almost half-assumed truth up in neon lights: Electricity in transportation has to be done. It is urgent," Grove said in a recent interview.
"The drumbeat of electrical transportation is accelerating like nothing I've ever seen in my life," he said.[/B]
Through scrupulous application of science and technology man can continue
to divest of murderous barbarity and improve conditions.
