History of the Electric Vehicle

Now

history
History
  • 1830’s - first electric carriage was built
  • 1891 - the first electric automobile was build in the United States
  • 1900 - heyday
  • 1908 - Henry Ford introduces Model T (top image)

  • 2003 GM discontinued the EV1 and “killed the electric car”
  • 2007- Tesla Roadster, an all electric vehicle. (bottom image)
differences
Differences
  • EVs are virtually silent
  • Some Electric Vehicles (EVs) look no different from gasoline-powered vehicles.
  • Under the hood the are very different
    • gasoline engine is replaced by an electric motor
    • electric motor gets its power from a controller
    • controller gets its power from an array of rechargeable batteries.

GM
  • Develop and launch the first modern-day electric vehicle back in 1996.
    • Timing of the EV1 wasn’t right.
    • Only 800 people were willing to lease it.
    • And gas was cheap
  • Leases were not renewed in 2003
  • GM is hoping for a better outcome in 2010
the volt
The Volt
  • Extended-Range Electric Vehicle
    • (E-REV)
  • Powered by GM's innovative E-Flex Propulsion System. Which runs on:
    • electricity
    • E85
    • gasoline fuels
how the volt runs
How the Volt Runs
  • Runs on strictly electric power for up to 40 miles
  • After 40 miles the range-extending power source seamlessly kicks into gear
    • putting the lithium ion battery pack to work
the volt s battery
The Volt’s Battery
  • Similar to the one created for the EV1
  • 1/2 the size
  • 1/3 the weight
  • Shaped like a T
    • to fit into other models down the line
  • Engineers are continually working on increasing technology
tesla roadster
Tesla Roadster
  • Fully electric automobile
  • Can drive over 220 miles per charge
  • Goes from 0-60 mph in 4 seconds
  • Comprised of only 4 main componentsGoes from
tesla s main components
Tesla’s Main Components
  • Battery
    • Combination of lithium ion battery technology and the Tesla Company’s own unique battery pack.
  • Motor
  • Transmission
  • Power Electronics Modules
    • Translates drives commands
benefits
Benefits
  • Reduced dependence on foreign oil
    • could displace 6.2 million barrels of oil a day
  • Zero emissions
  • Can cost of less than two cents per mile driven
  • Can be recharged using a typical household outlet
drawbacks
Drawbacks
  • The prices of Electric Vehicles are still very high
  • Most EVs have slow pick-up
  • Would drastically increase electric bills
  • Move pollution and destruction of natural resources to new areas.
