Kearon's EV Capri

Hey Kearon, I watched your latest video a couple of days ago, the epp where u took your first EV testdrive - in a Daewoo. I noticed that while u were driving u were changing the gears alot, like in an ICE engine. Was this force of habbit or did u feel that u needed to?

Thanks for that mark, they look interesting. I notice that the first 2 were printed back in 1993, how relevant do you think they are today?

The taxes on motors, batteries, etc.

Battery Cycles

Thats my concern also. 95% of our driving is highway travel so i would need a top speed of probably 140kph with peak economy of driving at around 110kph & with a range of 60klm minimum, 200 would cover us almost completly.

Kearon's EV Capri

Thats exellent. I never knew the gear box would work like that. I'm guessing that while driving you won't need all of the gears. prob 1st, 3rd & 5th? I'm just wondering about the battery weight Vs the weight of the old ICE & components, do u have a rough figure for weight comparsion? Is there any re...

“Off Peak” electricity

To the best of my knowlage, for tasmania at least, off peak is simply the lowest charge period regardless of what equipment uses it. From memory i thinks its about 11pm to 6am.

Hi from Tas.

Hi guys, big hello from tasmania. I've been interested in electric cars for quite a while now & with the cost of petrol skyrocketing & showing no sign of stopping i'm betting that there will be a lot more interest soon too. Because of the cost of converting a car to all electric i've turned my atten...
