Nation-E Angel Car is roadside assistance for EV drivers

Posted in Automotive by Shane McGlaun on September 13th, 2010

I have never run a car I was driving out of gas before. I have had to drive to pick up my wife a few times over the years when she forgot to get gas and ended up stranded. At least with a normal car you can just put a few gallons in the tank to get you to the station.

If you forget to plug in an electric car and you get stranded on the side of the road today, you are out of luck. A company called Nation-E has unveiled a new charging system in Europe that has a mobile charger in the back of a van called Angel Car. The idea is that if an EV owner runs out of juice the van drives to them to give a charge.

Electric cars are also better for the environment than gasoline and diesel vehicles. The problem is that most electric vehicles lack the range many drivers need in a car.

Tesla, famous for its Tesla Roadster, announced a new electric vehicle called the Model S. Unlike the two-seat Roadster, the Model S is a seven passenger electric vehicle that promises to take all passengers up to 300 miles per charge.

Shelby Aero EVI will admit that I find the majority of electric vehicle that are available now very boring. I am a big car fan and prefer my vehicles to offer performance and looks. Not all of the electric vehicles out there are boring though; the Tesla Roadster springs to mind.

A new all-electric super car from Shelby Super Cars called the Aero EV has now been unveiled that takes all of the Tesla Roadster’s thunder away. The Aero EV claims to reach a top speed of 208 mph and hit 60 mph from a standstill in a mere 2.5 seconds.

Charge your electric car batteries in the house
The thing that sucks about electric cars is that they need to be plugged in every day. Most people don’t have a plug in their garage or their driveway. That being the case, you are going to have an extension cord mess somewhere.

That won’t be a problem with the MIRA HAV, an electric car that’s designed a little smarter. It allows you to remove the batteries and charge them up in your home. That’s where your outlets are after all, so it makes sense. Obviously moving large batteries to and fro is not ideal either. They have some flaws to work out, but hey, it’s an option that has to work for some people.
