Energetique evMe in Herald Sun 16-Jan-09

There is a 2 page spread on the evMe in todays Herald Sun.
Seems like a good conversion of a Mazda2 but $70,000 might
be a bit much for the average bloke or blokette.
Claiming a 250k range and 130kph top speed.

Can we invent some sort of drive in/on charger whether it be something like on the bottom of slot cars and you have some strips in the floor that you park the car on while charging (not very safe I guess) but maybe there is some sort of remote control switch in the car to turn on the mains.

Sounds like an ideal fleet for EV's. Do they run the Hilux's day and night? Or maybe import some of the vehicles from the UK What about you suggest that the shed were the Hilux's are kept has a PV array to charge them. All this is probably to costly for the powers that be so maybe just suggest using...

Hi Taffy, I have been looking at these Dualpower Mowers (about $200) and the Enviromowers (about $500) but have wondered if the Dualpowers are any good. I do have patches of fairly thick grass on 1/4 acre block but if I can keep it short it doesn't seem to hard to cut for my ICE mower. How long have...

Mitsubishi Colts from the 80's had a 2 speed diff but I think it is integral with the gearbox, some smarty might be able to seperate the two though. Woody, Blade's might use the gearbox that you can get with the Emotors they use. He seemed to have complete ICE's (with gearbox) lying around. They are...
