is an automobile that is propelled by one or more
electrical energy stored in rechargeable batteries
or another energy
storage device. Electric motors give electric cars instant torque,
creating strong and smooth acceleration. They are also around three times
as efficient as cars with an internal combustion engine
. They do not emit
tailpipe pollutants, giving a large reduction of local air pollution, and,
can give a significant reduction in total greenhouse gas and other
emissions. The first practical electric cars were produced in the

Plug in Hybrid (PHEV)
is a hybrid electric vehicle
that uses rechargeable batteries, or another energy storage device, that
can be recharged by plugging it in to an external source of electric
power. A PHEV shares the characteristics both of a conventional hybrid
electric vehicle, having an electric motor and an internal combustion
engine (ICE), and of an all-electric vehicle, having a plug to connect to
the electrical grid. Most PHEVs are passenger cars but there are also PHEV
versions of commercial vehicles and vans, utility trucks, buses, trains,
motorcycles, scooters, and military vehicles.

using a segmented "recharging" road that induces a current in "pick-up"
modules on the vehicle.

YeZ Concept Car
is an energy recovery mechanism which slows a vehicle or
object by converting its
into a form which can be either used immediately or
stored until needed. This contrasts with conventional
braking systems, where the excess kinetic energy is
converted to unwanted and wasted heat by friction in the
brakes. In addition to improving the overall efficiency
of the vehicle, regeneration can greatly extend the life
of the braking system as its parts do not wear as
Eddy Current Brake
is a device used to slow or stop a moving object by
dissipating its kinetic energy as heat. However, unlike
electro-mechanical brakes, in which the drag force used
to stop the moving object is provided by friction
between two surfaces pressed together, the drag force in
an eddy current brake is an electromagnetic force
between a magnet and a nearby conductive object in
relative motion, due to eddy currents induced in the
conductor through electromagnetic induction.
Regenerative Brakes on Bikes
Every school should take a vintage classic car and
restore it into an electric vehicle
Then the school could use the car for driving lessons
and also use it for local delivery's for school
supplies. At the same time they can learn math, science
, and so on.
