Detroit Electric Will Offer All-Electric Sedan By Next Year

As you can tell, we're pretty excited around here for the Tesla Model S, but Detroit Electric, a company that was making electric cars back in the early 1900's, has given us yet another car to get excited about. Yesterday, the company announced that they are partnering with Malaysian auto manufacturer Proton Holdings to produce the E63, an all-electric sedan that will hit the market ahead of the cheap levitra uk Tesla Model S.

The E63 will be a four-door sedan with two range options: either 111 miles for $23,000 to $26,000 or 200 miles for $28,000 to $33,000. The company plans to introduce the car in Europe and Asia in February 2010 and then in the U.S. a few months later. The quick turnaround will be possible by outfitting Proton's existing car models with Detroit Electric's engine design instead of designing a whole new model.

The E63 lacks the beautiful design and the luxury details of the Model S, but it looks like a pretty sporty sedan. It has a top speed of 112 mph and can do 0-62 in under eight seconds. So, for all the people out there for whom the Model S is out of reach, the E63 may be a perfectly suitable substitute.

Proton uh oh....

Proton is only best offers rx generic viagra not known for quality, in fact they mainly localize obsolete Mitsubishi designs and platforms and give them nationalistic Malaysian names. Quality wise, think Hyundai or Lada of 1980s vintage - be prepared for things to fall off and i recommend viagra sales in canada or break.

Net increase in CO2 emissions
written by Jack, April 01, 2009
For the vast majority of www.shoreacres.net consumers in North America moving to an all-electric vehicle means a net increase in CO2 emissions. Coal-fired power plants range from 1.8 to over 2.5 lbs CO2 per kW. When one factors in transmission loses in getting the buy cheap purchase uk viagra power to the home, power conversion in creating DC to charge the batteries, electro-chemical losses in charging then the powering the vehicle, and the life-cycle carbon costs associated with the batteries, rare-earth metals in the magnets & motors, lead & acid associated with the batteries, and mercury from power plant emissions we are all a LOT better off if these vehicles never saw the light of day.

We can do far better with bio-diesel from renewable/recycled resources or natural gas powered vehicles. See http://www.biodiesel.com for the latest on this proven resource.

Has anyone ever given a thought on how you will keep the click now no prescription interior of an electric car warm in winter? Seems highly inefficient to do it with a battery.

Don't worry, I'll power my car with the solar panels I currently have on my roof. As we replace the coal fired plants with renewal sources the CO2 with diminish.

Agree with Jim. We must inevitably move away from fuel burning crap, even if it is made out of crops we would rather use for feeding the hungry! We're gradually eliminating CO2-producing sources, cars are an important one, now we need to address the power plants and then, voila! no CO2 emmited whatsoever!

Cars need energy during mobility. So far only electric cars offer non fossile fuel based energy for cars (All others are not promising enough).

The regular power for our homes (and eletric cars) can have alternatives like wind, solar etc.

So I agree with Luis, it is the first step to go away from fossile fuels.

Check yer units Jack

Did you mean to tramadol on drug screen say that coal plants generate 1.8 to 2.5 lbs of CO2 per kW-HOUR? Also the rest of your post has no numbers to back up any of your claims. If you want to make a cradle to grave and well to wheel assessment of both technologies; then show some work.

A good thing........
written by Richard Davine, April 07, 2009
What a beauty. Hope it does come out next year and NOT turn out to be the www.pjr.com rabbit taunting the greyhound at the track.
This shall also scare other auto makers to pull there fingers out.
Still the embodied energy put into a new car, electric or not, may make a 2nd hand diesel less polluting, over all, within a 5 year life/owner cycle of a car.
