eleOne of the main questions that still surrounds the whole electric car issue is, is there a cheap electric car? The electric car is yet to achieve the revolutionary status as far as affairs with the global automobile industry is concerned. Be that as it may, electric cars are indeed very popular and the popularity of these environmentally friendly automotive solutions keeps on rising by the day. One major setback though when it comes to electric cars and precisely, the ability of electric cars to making significant inroads into the global automobile market is the cost of these cars. It is indeed true that electric cars are relatively much more expensive as compared to convectional automobiles. This can mainly be attributed to the technology that goes towards developing and manufacturing these cars.

The brief analysis on the global status of electric cars still raises the question; is there a cheap electric car? The ele2
answer to this question is a resounding no. Going by the current average prices of electric cars globally, one can easily conclude that indeed, there are no cheap electric cars. Electric cars are indeed some of the priciest automobiles in the market today. A brief analysis of low end electric cars which can be considered base models as far as the global electric car industry reveal that the average prices of these low end models range from $18,000 to $25,000. The Mitsubishi i, which is considered one of the most ��affordable’ electric car models retails for about $22,000. For this amount of money, you get a very small two seater car that can only be used for city driving. Other popular electric car models such as the Toyota Prius, the Chevy Spark and the Ford Focus Electric are even pricier.

No matter which way one chooses to look at it, 18 or 25 grand for that matter cannot be considered as cheap. For these sums of money, one can purchase a mid-range convectional SUV or even Sedan. These convectional cars can be used for city, long range driving and even off-road driving. On the other hand, if one opts for an electric car, they will have to contend with the significant limitations of their cars in terms of the car’s versatility.ele3

However, many people will of course advance the argument that the fuel cost savings will be more than enough to cater for any limitations associated with these pricy but very limited cars. This discussion notwithstanding, many people will still be left with the question, is there a cheap electric car?…

fasWhile many people just long and wish for owning the quickest car on the planet, some will do all whatever it takes to have one.

Here is the speediest real auto; available in the business (creation models, instead of thought or modified automobiles) it has been attempted, measured and checked top paces. The car I am talking about is the 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder.

Flush as we are with nutty execution autos right now, we ought to recollect that cars as snappy as the Porsche 918 don’t go along over and again. In 2012, the fastest (and quickest) creation auto we had ever tried was the Bugatti Veyron 16.4. It could hit a speed of 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and blaze the quarter-mile in 10.1 ticks. The Porsche 918 squashes the first million-dollar auto with a 2.2-second sprint to 60 mph and a 9.8-second quarter-mile time. In other words, 0.3 second is about to what extent it takes you to squint. As speeding up times psychologist, their deltas get to be progressively bigger rate picks up, so the 918’s third-of-a-second edge over the Veyron speaks to a bewildering accomplishment.



Launch control takes the guesswork out of testing the 918. Two electric engines with a consolidated 285 torque work working together with the level wrench, 608-hp 4.6-liter V-8. By directing torque as much as a whole 830 pound-feet—to every one of the four wheels, the 918 amplifies footing.

In the event that we had somewhat more testing room, we may have possessed the capacity to hit 200 mph and depose the Veyron’s 25.5-second zero-to-200-mph time. (It’s likewise the main auto for which we have that detail.) But even Porsche concedes that the Veyron quickens harder at the higher rate.

Looking at the pace show for a large portion of a second while going 187 mph the quickest speed we accomplished makes 137 feet of street vanish. That is five feet short of what it takes the 918 to prevent from 70 mph in a full frenzy circumstance.fast3

There is next to no wheelspin amid the 918 dispatch. In any case expecting for a minute that there is no at-dispatch wheel spin at all, the 918 bounced to 16 mph after only one wheel revolution, or in around seven feet. Its gigantic 325/30ZR-21 Michelin Pilot Sports Cup 2 back tires ($729 each) stand about 29 inches tall, very nearly two inches taller than a 911 Turbo S’s back elastic. Expanding the general measurement of a tire builds the zone of the contact patch. That is the reason Top Fuel speedsters’ tires are designed to extend because of inertial powers at launch.…
