BMW i3 – The Ultimate Zero Emission Driving Machine

BMW i8 plug-in hybrid sports coupe that dazzled movie audiences in Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol. BMW will extend range with innovative super-strong, yet lightweight materials including aluminum frame and carbon fiber reinforced plastic, CFRP for short. The i3 body consists of two independent modules: the Drive Module consists of an aluminum chassis and the powertrain with the lithium-ion battery, the performance electronics and a compact but powerful electric motor. BMW i3 is on top of my “Best of 2013″ list.

U.S. Electric Car Forecast

Electric car sales were expected triple in the U.S. each year from 20,000 in 2011 to 60,000 in 2012 to 180,000 in 2013; they missed that mark in 2013 by a wide margin, but sales are still stronger than the early years of hybrid cars. Accenture and some others were forecasting more than one million electric vehicles (cumulative) in the United States by 2015, but those numbers are being pushed out. Single electric utilities have scenarios for charging over one million electric vehicles in their own service area by 2020. With renewable energy investment required of utilities in 30 states, these utilities are most interested in night time charging of electric vehicles with wind, geothermal, and hydropower. Utilities are also implementing smart grids and incentives for off-peak charging. It’s a tough business. Even Tesla had to add 700 pounds and two years to get the first Roadsters in customers’ hands. Fisker offered a beautiful $100,000 Karma luxury sports coupe, but filed for bankruptcy in 2013. Coda offers an all-electric sedan with more range than the LEAF and Focus Electric but failed to find a market and closed operations. Battery makers, such as Panasonic, Sanyo, LG Chem, and Samsung see strong growth, while others such as A123 and EnerDel struggle in the face of intense competition.

China/India/Korea Prepare for the U.S. Market

For years we have read about China’s plans to bring electric cars to the U.S. Although China’s U.S. ambitions have slipped badly, its automakers cannot be ignored. China has over 100 million light electric vehicles, e-bikes and e-scooters in daily use. It’s new 5-year plan calls for 100 million electric charging stations in China by 2020. BYD, with gold-plated investors such as Warren Buffett, has only put a few hundred electric vehicles on the road in China and continues to delay introduction to the United States. Volvo, now owned by China’s Geely has the new C30 Drive E Electric, but the Volvo electric car will be selling only in Europe in the short-term. SAIC, Chery, and hundreds of players are also preparing EVs for China. India might bring us a Maharinda Reva or Nano EV that under prices everyone, but given recent European crash tests of those models, they are unlikely to show up here anytime soon. Korean manufacturers, already tearing up the U.S. market, have announced that the Soul EV will go on sale this year.

European Innovation

Europe, with higher fuel prices and fewer oil subsidies, is forecast to have more electric cars by 2020 than the United States. But it will not be a smooth road. Better Place was expected to deliver 100,000 of the Renault Fluence with its switchable battery to Israel, Denmark, Australia, and even U.S. taxi fleets, but the company filed for bankruptcy in 2013. Volkswagen may teach everyone how to extend range by making vehicles light. The concept Up Light weighs just over 1,500 pounds and it’s coming on the market soon. We loved test-driving the Volkswagen Golf Blue E-Motion and expect to see it late in 2014. The Audi E-Tron may show up by 2015. Competition will be tough.

There is a lot of innovation from around the world that did not make this Top 10 List, which focuses on the U.S. market for the next 12 months. Please bookmark this Top 10 List and check back as we update. Exciting new electric cars are being driven on the U.S. streets and freeways. Nissan is an early mover with battery-electric cars and General Motors with plug-in hybrids. Competition increases from Mitsubishi, Ford, Toyota, Honda, and dozens of Asian, European and American innovators. The winner will be the customer.

    There’s a new electric car manufacturer in the U.S. thats been designing and now building fully electric,DOT approved, highway speed,200 plus miles on a single charge vehicles…and it’s called EMC. The “family” of vehicles includes a 5 or 7 pass. wagon, a 1/4 ton p/u, and a cargo van. They are real…I have driven one, and it is the new class of electrics.

    All talk talk talk about electric cars and no action. We had the technology years ago. I’m disgusted with all the auto makers. Where are the promised EV’s that were going to be on the market in 2010? Are they waiting for the last minute.

    I have no interest in hybrids either. They still consume gas. There doesn’t seem to much of a choice for 100% electric. I’ll probably build my own before something reasonable is available. The only one I saw that may be affordable and available is the “Think”. I’ll have to read more about it.

  4. Simon July 17th, 2010, 7:02 pm

    Why the heck are the companies that receive funding to build electric cars like tesla only making great cars that are unaffordable! … HELLO, we need a sedan with a 200 mile range, 0-60 in 6-7 seconds, that looks decent with midgrade amenities all for $28 – $38k.

  5. Robert Howell July 19th, 2010, 7:52 am

    The GM EV1, the Toyota Rav 4EV, and the Honda EV Plus were designed and rolling on the streets with a 60+ range in the mid 90′s. The movie “Who Killed the Electric Car” covers the testing. The technology has been around for 14 years. Tesla Motors has a life of 240 miles per charge for the consumer that wants a sports coupe. Where is the publics average priced vehicle with the same range with a faster charge? Still raping the American citizens, the ones who pay for the grant money from the government to design and sell these vehicles. It’s disgusting. No wonder so many millions of Americans are sitting at the house on unemployment living off the government. It is hard to dream with shackles on your neck, wrists, and ankles.

  6. jamie July 31st, 2010, 5:53 pm

    electric only last so long it has to have fuel back up or alot of people would be on the side of the road needing an outlet to charge, until they get charging stations atleast , but still even then how long will it take to charge a car , right now its hours so….

  7. wowlfer August 14th, 2010, 11:26 am

    Leaf works for me–I’m on the list. As a 3 car family we will swap one of them for the Leaf and use it extensively for in town to work run about. Gas strictly for weekend warrior shopping, family, etc. Hopefully we will cut our gas use by 90%. I expect we will buy some solar power panels to charge the LEAF directly from solar power and bypass our home grid (direct from solar to Leaf). That will make it very cheap in the long run for a city runabout even if it takes a full 14 hours to charge that is fine with us.

  8. Liam August 14th, 2010, 10:02 pm

    Wowlfer, now you’re talking! Solar pv installed on the home and a new electric car. for about $45,000 you can buy a new car, and a solar system, never pay for energy again, except maybe a rare long haul car trip!

  9. Suman September 17th, 2010, 11:50 pm

    Boy these cars are expensive. I wish I can or most general public can afford these cars.

  10. Ryan September 18th, 2010, 10:34 pm

    Why are the Volt And Prius even in this article, they are hybrids!! isn’t this article on full electric cars? the only full electric cars comming in 2011 are the Leaf and Coda (In the U.S. that is!). The Coda from what i understand is only being launched in Hawaii in 2011 in limited production and the leaf is comming out in limited production with only 20,000 units … I saw on another sight that over 100,000 people have signed up for a Leaf… How does that math work? their are many companies doing awsome conversions, maybe thats the best way to force the change over to electric.

  11. John Addison September 21st, 2010, 8:46 am

    Ryan, we appreciate your enthusiasm for pure battery-electric cars which use zero petroleum and have a lower carbon footprint than plug-in hybrids, also discussed, which use an engine to extend the range of pure battery-electrics. In 2011, I hope to get delivery of the Nisssan LEAF (they have my $99). In 2011, other battery-electrics that will probably be available include the Mitsubishi i_MiEV, the Ford Transit Connect, the Ford Focus Electric, and a couple of surprises.

  12. John Addison September 21st, 2010, 8:49 am

    Suman, yes electric cars are currently expensive. In the next few years we hope to see declining prices with volume manufacturing and lowering costs of lithium battery packs. It’s good that Nissan and Chevy offer $350 per month leases, and that Enterprise, Zipcar, and others will offer electric cars by the day and even as low as $8 per hour.

  13. Norm Odeneal September 25th, 2010, 2:24 pm

    I vote for the Tesla! The 0-6- time is amazing. and so is the range

  14. Merit Herman September 27th, 2010, 7:39 pm

    Try buying a Volt from any dealer in California……can’t get anyone to sell me one at MSRP…..one dealership had the nads to tell me the base cost is $51K due to a $10K ‘market adjustment’. Well, here’s where the US bailed out bankrupt dealership can stick his market adjustment….come on guys, $41K is bad enough, but do they really think anyone is dumb enough to pay an extra $10K for the ‘priviledge’ to be the first model year gunea pig?

    I have a full 5KW panel system on my house so effectively could be paying next to zero to power the Volt (or any other EV), and the money to pay the extra $10K, but does anyone think the greater fool theory is that pervasive? Maybe in L.A.?

    Guess I hold off until Ford comes out with a PHEV Escape (I own one of these hybrids right now and it’s fabulous – best SUV on the planet). Screw off GM – been a Volt follower for years, but bad taste in mouth from your ‘dealers’.

  15. John Addison September 28th, 2010, 1:53 pm

    Merit, thanks for sharing the behavior of Chevy dealers. This is valuable info for all readers. I’d welcome an article or email to me about your experince as a PHEV Escape driver and your future plans. I believe that Ford will offer a Focus pure-electric in 2011, a Focus PHEV in 2012, and that it will be a longer wait for a Ford Escape PHEV (as opposed to conversions). Thanks for the input.

  16. Robert Pierce October 16th, 2010, 3:37 pm

    Why can’t someone make an affordable car that uses a small gasoline engine that only generates electricity for the electric drive train and batteries? This would use the existing infrastucture and be a good interim vehicle until the manufacturing costs come down on true electrics with the performance and range that we want. Volt is an expensive version of this, but the technology has been around for a long time (submarines, aircracraft carriers, diesel locamotives, etc.) and sould be affordable to produce.

  17. Gilbert October 28th, 2010, 5:52 pm

    I own a Tesla Roadster 2.5. The car is fantastic. It is fast, comfortable and has great styling. It is a beautifully engineerd car. Yes, it is expensive but lots of people drive expensive sports cars that are gas guzzlers. The cost averages out to about 2.5 cents per mile. It is not designed to be a family car but would work very well as a commuter car.

  18. Will November 11th, 2010, 6:00 pm

    The Think City car is also coming to the US, will be built in Indiana. Think EV has sold more EV’s than any other pure electric in the world. I also hear a rumor that it will be totally re-designed for 2012. The Think City has my vote!

  19. William J Dorsett December 8th, 2010, 9:50 pm

    Here is my question. Why don’t they make a car that recharges itself as its rolling down the highway?
    First off, the are generators being built with magnets that once they get a push start, continue to generate free energy. Install a small one on a electric car, and you wont need a plug, and the car can drive from one end of the country to the other.
    Second, so you don’t trust the magnet idea, well each wheel on the car is constantly turning while the car is driving. This motion is generating energy, not only is the energy pulling the car to its destination, but there is kinetic energy that could be collected if belts or a extra gear system was attached to each of the wheels. These could work like 4 separate alternators, suggesting that while the car is in motion, there is a constant charge being added to the battery.
    The magnet generator I have build a small test model and burn a tiny light for days off it,
    the wheel alternators I have never tried, but I have had many dreams of…
    So why is it, normal everyday people can think of things like this, yet the brilliant scientists that work for companies like GM and FORD, and so on and so forth can’t even come up with a half way decent electric car?
    Come on already it’s almost 2011…….!!!!!

  20. AAdler December 10th, 2010, 2:02 am

    Its pathetic that our national safety is always at stake with terrorist threats and instability in our economy resulting from oil dependence…..yet we can’t loosen auto safety standards to get weight down for electric cars and let consumers make their own choices. And start mandating charging stations as much as handicap ramps. Gee…go figure how we have noise polluting Harleys on the roads, with exposed riders…but we can’t approve a less than US government safety standard car that is electric..
    Same politics, different day. Thank you GM, Washington and Big Oil for your lobbying that continues to drag as backward. Oh and did I mention Harley Davidson?

  21. Jennifer McIntosh January 5th, 2011, 9:22 am

    I love Williams idea of a car that recharges itself as it is moving. I have also had dreams of this and dreams of incorporating magnets. This is brilliant ! why, like you said, have the scientists and engineers not worked on making cars from this angle ? !

  22. Ala King January 8th, 2011, 11:20 am

    This car companies will not give it ALL.. although the technology is available. If they release an EV this year let say top speed of 84kph they will introduced a more advanced EV next year with top speed of 120kph to gain more profit. just like smartphones we have iphone iphone3g iphone4g then what next iphone 5 iphone6…78910……

  23. Scott March 6th, 2011, 5:32 am

    Remember the original costs of the flat screen TV? These costs will come down as well.

    As far as using electricity (from utilities burning coal) it is still slightly more environmentally friendly than using gas directly and I expect charging it with solar, wind etc. will become increasingly more common.

    As far as miles per charge go remember the average daily miles driven by US citizens in roughly 29-35 miles. Imagine if all two car families drove the electric for daily use and saved the big SUV for those rare long hauls. That alone would be a huge step in the right direction.

  24. tom Cosgrove March 9th, 2011, 8:02 am

    John,
    Good article on EVs and PHEVs; driving will never be the same! Quick question: I produce green fairs for corporate employees to educate them as to what’s available in the green marketplace. I’ve been trying to get a Nissan Leaf and other EVs to come and exhibit at my events but the dealers have no show room models to demo as they are sold out for 2 years in advance! Any idea of how to contact EV car clubs or EV enthusiasts who may want to show off their EV? I’m in the San Francisco bay area. Thanks and keep feeding us the latest in EV/PHEV.

  25. Donna March 10th, 2011, 8:24 pm

    All the talk about 100% electric and solar cars. Those cars won’t have a big market. If you look at it from a car maker’s perspective, they have to build what will sell. A 100% electric car sounds great. I and lots of others would love one. But it’s not practical. Last year my power was out for days due to an ice storm. I was able to make it via car to local Target and buy emergency supplies. That wouldn’t have been possible if I’d been unlucky enough for my car not to be sufficiently charged. Or if my charge starts going out, esp. as the car gets older and the battery gets weaker…it’s not like I can pull in somewhere and fill-er-up in a few minutes. I have a serious problem if my charge goes out when I’m gadding about town. Going to visit my family out of state would be out of the question…no EV car to date can make it that far. Rent a car? Okay. Will the rental agency let me leave my car there, fully secured and protected, while I rent a car? Probably not. And solar…that will only work in a truly sunny area, and then only when you don’t rely on the car for must-do tasks, like going to work every day. Those would be good options for a second car. But for those of us who can only have one car, it has to be dependable, and you have to be able to fill-er-up in a few minutes. So the combo electric-gas seems to fit that need. That’s why those cars are being made sooner and more of them. If you were a car maker, that’s what you’d do, too. (Also, let’s not forget that the tax credits up to Dec. 2010 were for hybrids, not plug-ins. Tax credits for electric kick in this year, so that’s at least partly why electrics are coming into the market now, it seems.) I’m going to take a serious look at the new plug-ins and see if I can buy one. Hope they’re not out of my price range (with the tax credit).

    Respected Sir,
    If there is a possibility of charging an electric vehicle (Car) with Small Wind Turbines, Solar PV Cells fitted as additional parts to it, and it needs to be very economic for a common person to purchase then there shall be a great change in the transport system.

    For $10,000 I can install enough solar panels on my roof to meet my electricity needs and I can plug in my electric car using the power from the sun. This technology is here now and it is incredibly exciting! The solar panels will pay for themselves in about 2 1/2 years for me. Goodbye OIL!

  29. Michael Coates May 23rd, 2013, 11:07 pm

    @Richard
    You’re on the right track. One of the first comments people ask when discussing plug-in cars is where the electricity comes from. Obviously, solar sourced electricity is the ideal. Good luck!

    John Addison,
    Please write a story about the history of the Aptera, winner of the “X prize”. US car company that has been sold to China, who will be importing to the US shortly, company because US government would not help!

  35. Michael Coates August 27th, 2013, 2:58 pm

    @Joe,
    I’m afraid it would be a pretty sad history that would only show that unconventional products like the Aptera are unlikely to find a successful place in the market, even if they’re imported from China. But I do appreciate the suggestion and may yet revisit the list of recent failed EV makers (including those like Fisker who received government support).
