Student Project- Electric Mobility Survey

Post by louficat »

Hello,

Curently undertaking a project on electric mobility, I would like to attract your attention on this small survey I have built up.

It will take only two minutes to fill in!! The objective is to evaluate if there is an interest in improving EVs range through a new product.

The quality on my work depends also on you guys.

I will give you a feedback once I have reached enough votes.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation and your help.

Have a great day!

Cheers

The end is in french?!?
So unlikely for Australia...
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

Could you tell me a bit more ? You think EVs don't have their place in Australia?
Or you think french can't understand the market?

I can read French - I just don't know what I'm reading. Image
BTW I filled out the form.

Edit: That was a waste of typing - I just realise you wrote that you couldn't understand French - not couldn't read it. Drat! I've wasted more typing...

When I hear electric mobility I think of those old poeple going down the foot path on the electric wheel chairs.
I don't know if they really need much range.
I doubt they go camping much either.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

Before you carve your survey into stone, may I suggest you visit TED.com
& view the very recent talk by Amory Lovins "A 50 Year Plan for Energy"

The guy is a Physicist, who can really communicate cleaerly (if quickly,
maybe download the talk & play it slower in VLC if he's too quick):

+ http://www.TED.com/talks/amory_lovins_a ... nergy.html

I convinced, that my next EV will have a LIGHTWEIGHT Carbon Fibre body.

Did your survey happen to ask about Carbon Fibre as a material for EV
bodies, by any chance?

If not, I suggest you add it in; I think it could really improve your
quality (a.k.a. grade) on your project with that slight, but important
change.

Hi IVI,
Thanks for your link.
Using carbon fiber parts will enhance the global performances.
But it remains very expensive and hard to recycle.
If I have time I will have a look at it during the project.
