recharging electric cars

I am not an engineer or an electronic specialist but I wonder why we cannot use the air pressure in front of the car through a duct in the bonnet to drive an alternator to produce electricity to re charge the battery while we drive. This would need to know the ammount of energy used to decide the capacity of the alternator and it's production of energy. A rotating drum with helical vanes inside a tube with the shaft ...more »

Cars run on water

I have a mechanical and electrical engineer friend who has created a car running on hydrogen fuel created by zinc platter and water. The only thing is that he is reluctant to make it public although I have seen what he has done. If this gadget were to put into all our cars it will be incredible. Zero pollution and no revenue for the Government. Any fuel running on petrol will be redundant and the end of oil exploration ...more »

NZ EV Production Model

I think a standardized EV model, based on a 750kg platform featuring a basic design car with standard options can be organically grown here in New Zealand and sold worldwide for $25,000 or less. The car would have a 100km range and a top speed of 100kmph. We have the technology and expertise to make it happen right now. Agree or disagree?

more electric sales in nZ

$35000 for a volt in the us should make it $41000 her, not $85000.More incentive such as a $5000 minimum trade in on a lease to buy deal would be a good start.

EV acceptance via Plug in Hybrids

I am confident that vehicles such as the soon to be released in NZ Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV will hasten the mainstream acceptance of 'battery' powered cars. Agree or disagree?

Alternative methods for funding EVs

The industry keeps asking for grants for develping an industry in New Zealand. But there are other options. What about a low interest loans which can be partly or wholly repaid from operational savings afforded by the vehicle.

Also the vehicle companies have to come to the party, as currently their offers are considerably more expensive than in other countries.
