EV's in magazines

Post by moemoke »

I have thought about this topic for a while as a mad collector of car magazines I have noticed that EV's are been featured more often, pretty much every magazine I buy has an article on EV's of some sort, usually cars which is my main interest.

I hope to post in this topic the details of any magazines that have a
reasonable article on EV's so that others may purchase the magazine.
Some posts will be old mags not available but I might be able to work something out if people want to view the article.

So to start it of.

Sept 2009 CAR magazine (UK)with 2 jag protoypes on the cover.
Page 118, It has a comparsion test between a G-Wiz, Smart fortwo ED,
   Mitsubishi I-Miev, and a ECC C1 EV-IE which is a Citroen C1 convert.

   Page 134, There is also an interesting article on the Lightning GT
with is a high performance Ev with some unsupported claims for
range and speed.
The article explains that the claims can be met because the car uses
Lithium nano titanate batteries which have a higher density than any other battery and can be recharged in 10 minutes. The batts are made by a US company Altairnano Technologies.

These articles may be on CAR magazines website at www.carmagazine.co.uk

For copywrite reasons I cannot scan and post articles but I have a few
from the 60's which I may be able to scan for people to read.

Feel free to post any links that you know of.

I guess in this internet age you could consider Gizmag a daily magazine.
Go to the site and sign yourself up for the bits that you like. Nearly every day has EV's, battery research, smart grids, PV, etc.

Also DIRT Action dirt bike magazine has a test of the Zero. Issue 126, November 2009. They had a few niggles (eg lightweight suspension) but overall are quite positive about it.

I've been a bit slack with this topic but in the latest UK CAR
magazine (Dec 09) they have a 32 page supplement on EV's, it is issue one of 'green car' magazine so may be a regular thing. This issue has a drive test of an Audi R8 e-tron, the writer is very impressed.
