Toyota (TM) Plug-in’s and ALL Electric RAV4 showcased

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Toyota’s eco-friendly autos are center stage at a Little Tokyo event this weekend showcasing new technologies and designs from Japan.

Visitors to the Little Tokyo Design Week area can peek inside the Prius Plug-in hybrid, the RAV4 EV battery-electric vehicle and the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hybrid vehicle that are sitting in the plaza beside the Japanese American National Museum.

The Prius Plug-in will be able to run for 13 miles on power from its Lithium-ion battery, according to Toyota. More than 160 of the vehicles are already being driven in the U.S. as a demonstration program before sales start in earnest next year.

Toyota is working with Tesla on the electric RAV4, which is also expected to become available to buyers in 2012. Meanwhile, the automaker plans to spread more than 100 of its advanced fuel-cell vehicles around the country by 2013 through another demonstration program, with hopes of bringing the technology to market by 2015. 

The rest of the event, which lasts through Sunday, involves more than 15 steel storage containers acting as temporary exhibit space.

The Giant Robot retail chain has a makeshift gallery featuring products such as a “crunching dog” USB stick with a model canine doing sit-ups on the end. There’s a “Robot Box,” with various automatons and other machines. Representatives from USC, UCLA and SCI-Arc have their own boxes too.

Near the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, there’s an extended garden set up on stilts with tomatoes, carrots and beans.

Tesla Motors (TSLA) Raises addtional $232 Million with a secondary stock offering and private placement.

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Edouard Prous, CTO of EVCARCO Inc. (OTC: EVCA)

Tesla made its name building high-powered, high-priced electric sports cars for the glitterati. The company’s iconic, $109,000 Roadster, introduced in 2008, was never meant for the mass market. Its production run will end at a mere 2,500 cars.

Now, Tesla is leaving its days as a boutique automaker behind. The Palo Alto company, founded in 2003, will make the jump to full-scale production with its next car, the Model S, to be built at the old New United Motor Manufacturing Inc. factory in Fremont. Next year, the company plans to assemble 5,000 of the electric sedans at the plant. In 2013, that number should reach 20,000. The Model S will cost $57,400 to $77,400, depending on the capacity of its battery pack.

Happy 155th Birthday Nikola Tesla

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

On July 10, 1856, Nikola Tesla was born in what is now modern day Croatia. He would go on to study electrical engineering and lay the groundwork for much of theNikola Tesla technology that we take for granted in modern society. Alternating current, electric motors, radio, radar, and wireless energy transmission are just a few of the high water marks in his career. He was also best buddies with Mark Twain. Celebrated in his time, Tesla fell into relative obscurity after some failed grandiose projects and patent battles. He died in 1943 with little money to his name in a New York hotel room.

After falling out of popular history for a time, his prestige has increased in modern times. Tesla’s status as a wronged genius, with a dash of mad scientist thrown in, has grown his legacy substantially. His likeness has appeared in film, comics, and his name was adopted by the makers of the all electric roadster (Tesla Motors; TSLA).

Happy Birthday Mr. Nikola Tesla

Statement of Support for Efforts to Advance Plug-In Electric Vehicles in the US

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

EVWorld.com Reports; 180+ Organizations Sign Electric Vehicle Support Statement

July 7, 2011 — We, the undersigned businesses, municipalities, and public interest groups from across the nation, support a strong national electric vehicle advancement program that will increase American jobs, decrease pollution, and reduce our dependence on oil.

Oil Independence

Gasoline prices are unstable and rising. Electric vehicles enable drivers to fill up on stable, domestic electricity at a cost equivalent to approximately 75 cents per gallon. Our nation sends up to a third of a trillion dollars overseas each year to purchase foreign oil, often produced by countries that are unstable or unfriendly to American interests. Foreign oil purchases are also responsible for about 50% of the US trade deficit. As Americans struggle to cope with rising and volatile gasoline prices, vehicle innovation provides real options. Greater independence from oil means an economically stronger and more secure America.
