Electric hybrid car, what kind of outlet will it plug into to recharge.

Electric hybrid car, what kind of outlet will it plug into to recharge.

Postby Franchid » Sun Jun 14, 2009 9:30 am

What type of electrical outlet will electric hybrid cars need to be plugged itno to recharge the battery? Standard 110, 220 or some special one that will need to be installed? Also how many kwh will it take. Are we going to be causing more pollution with the coal and oil that is burned to create the electricity than the gas the car burns? And with the high cost of electricity will it be cost effective if you have to charge the battery all night?

Uhhh, they don't plug in. They are hybrid, they use the gas powered engine to charge. You don't plug a standard car in so you can use headlights and radio do you?

An electric hybrid vehicle (the models I'm familiar with) use regular fuel like most vehicles. They are just more gas efficient getting you better gas mileage. It uses energy from the battery to recharge the electric motor. There are different varieties coming out now though. You may need to research the specific model you are thinking about purchasing.

A plug-in hybrid will be designed to run in all-electric mode for most everyday driving. Most all-electric cars are designed to use electricity from many sources. The EV that I drive, for instance, will recharge fast from a 220v plug, or slower from a 120v plug. This way, I can carry a plain old extension cord for emergency charging.

*

Some newer electric cars, with new battery technology, can even do very fast charging from special charging stations. Take a look at the Phoenix, below. It can charge in as little as TEN MINUTES. It carries 5 passengers plus cargo, does 95mph, and gets up to 250 miles per charge. Yes, it's a real car, it can be pre-ordered right now:

Your operating costs for an all electric car are far, far lower than for a comparable gas vehicle, due to the increased efficiency of electric drive. I know this is true because I drive an EV.

*

I can prove this. About how much does gasoline cost per mile? It varies of course, but it's somewhere around 10 to 15 cents per mile. How much does it cost to drive electric? The Toyota RAV4 EV, for example, gets 4 miles per kilowatt-hour. Off-peak (nighttime) electricity costs about 3 to 10 cents per kilowatt-hour, depending where you live. This means driving electric only costs about a penny per mile - MUCH cheaper than gasoline.

*

Why is this so? Fuel is burned wth up to 85% efficiency at power plants, and an electric motor is 95% efficient. By contrast, in your typical car, gasoline is burned with less than 25% efficiency.

*

Also, distributing electricity by wire to electric cars is around 95% efficient, which is far less wasteful and polluting than trucking gasoline around the country.

*

Increased efficiency means less costly fuel - and since you are traveling farther on less fuel, it also means far less pollution, regardless of what is burned at power plants.

as mentioned above, no commercially available hybrids plug-in.

A few people are making adaption kits, but the car makers don't want to upset the oil lobby.

hybrids give better mpg becaus electric motors are far more efficient & powerfull than infernal combustion.



Well to wheel" efficency electric is probably twice as efficient as infernal combustion, = much less pollution

Due to the laws of thermodynamics the bigger the energy conversion the more efficient; plus power stations constantly operate at optimum load & temperature, and are constantly monitored for efficiency & polution; plus powersations can use unrefined fuel, close to source, so no tankers, filling stations etc.



Then diesel particulates kill thousands each year acording to UK cheif scientific advisor. And noise polution is a major stressor. Driving electric is much more relaxed & enjoyable, quiet, smooth & smell free.



Electric motors are far more efficient tractioin than infernal combustion, eg maximum torque at 0 RPM, only one moving part, simpler transmission. No warm up period; no energy use when stationary, energy recovery when slowing down etc.

This is what gives hybrids better mpg.



Modern batteries are fully recyclable, have a life of 20 years, and can be recharged in 10 minutes http://www.altairnano.com/



Recharge at home or work; Tesla, www.teslamotors.com, recon $30,000 of photovoltaics would be enough for normal motoring needs.



However, against a hostile partnership of big vehicle makers and motoring media don't expect to see any rational debate on how we move into a post-peak oil world. see www.whokilledtheelectriccar.co...

Is that a joke? I didn't get it..
