Zero emission 100% electric Vehicles

100% electric vehicles, otherwise known as “battery electric vehicles” or “pure electric vehicles”, are wholly driven by an electric motor, powered by a battery that can be plugged into the mains. There is no combustion engine.

Electrical energy from the battery is passed through wire coils in the motor to create a magnetic field. This magnetism turns a rotor, which then turns the wheels of the vehicle.

To maximise efficiency this process is run in reverse when the vehicle is slowing down. The motor is put into reverse to slow the vehicle down, acting as a mini-generator to top-up the battery. Known as “regenerative braking”, this can add 10 miles or more to the range of the vehicle, energy that is entirely wasted through braking in petrol and diesel vehicles.

As 100% electric vehicles rely entirely on electricity for fuel, they do not produce any tailpipe emissions. At present, most of these vehicles on the market typically offer a range of around 100 miles

MORGAN EV3 Launches to Electric Cars

The Morgan EV3, announced at the Geneva International Motor Show, is the company’s first all-electric vehicle in more than a hundred years of building cars. The retro fantasy design is similar to the Morgan 3, which shares its three wheels and open cockpit. 

The EV3 is no fiction, though there’s plenty of science on board. The whole car weighs about a thousand pounds, and carries a 20-kWh battery pack and a liquid-cooled 46-kW motor (that’s just a touch over 60 hp) driving the rear wheel. It’s enough to propel the EV3 to over 90 mph and from 0 to 62 mph in under 9 seconds.

At the same time that Morgan announced the EV3 in Geneva, it also said that the company will receive government funding to develop more full EVs as well as hybrids. This could put the technology of the future under the hoods of the past.

Bustech lands into the Electric Vehicle Project of $176M in Malaysia

Australian bus manufacturer, Bustech has been chosen as the lead design and manufacturing partner for a $170 million electric bus project.
Announcing the project, Bustech CEO Michael McGee said the project would position Bustech as an innovative regional leader in the use of renewable energy for buses.

Bustech, part of Transit Australia Group, has partnered with the Malaysia Automotive Institute (MAI) (a Malaysian government body), Swinburne University of Technology and AutoCRC and a private Malaysian company to develop and test the E-Bus project in Malaysia.

Connected Cars Technology

Technological improvements in computers, smartphones, wireless communications and the cloud have converged to advance safety for connected consumers. Connectivity and the internet are changing the world of autos, and more change is coming. 
cars may soon be “talking” to each other and to the roadway. Car-to car information sharing can alert vehicles miles behind that cars ahead have come to a halt, warning drivers to prepare to slow down. “Smart” intersections will allow stop signs and traffic lights to communicate with vehicles, as sensors report if another vehicle is running a red light. Traffic lights could be synchronized to improve traffic flow — and fuel efficiency — and if there is only one vehicle sitting at a traffic light late at night, the light could be programmed to turn green.

PRIMOVE Wireless charging for Electric Vehicle

PRIMOVE wireless charging is based on high power inductive energy transfer between components buried underground and receiving equipment installed beneath the vehicle. Wayside components ‘communicate’ with the vehicle to start the contactless charging process automatically as soon as the vehicle completely covers the charging segment.




The invisible system transfers energy without contact at very high levels of efficiency. E-vehicles can be charged rapidly and seamlessly either in motion (dynamic charging) or at rest (static charging) without the need for extra fleet vehicles or batteries.
 Where it provides the user flexible and fast charging  which includes

Cummins old Model -Diesel Engines

In 1932, a Cummins 125 hp Model H powered bus set a transcontinental bus record time. The bus drove 3,220 miles from New York to Los Angeles in just over 91 hours. The test bus reached speeds up to 65 mph, achieving a faster travel time than by express train.



Driver Dave Evans set a 4 lap qualification run of 96.871 miles an hour. While it wasn’t a speed record, it was a record for the first diesel powered car at Indy. The car was heavy, at 3,386 pounds, the second heaviest in the field. It was also slow, being way behind the pole setting laps of the previous champion, Billy Arnold, who ran at 116.080 mph. There was some real concern about the tires being able to withstand the weight along with the abrasive brick surface.

Cummins also made arrangements to rent the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a show of engine endurance, with a full week long running of the car. Except making stops for fuel, the 168 hour run covered 13,535 miles. The average speed was 80 miles an hour. Fuel mileage…
