This seminar will present a serious, substantive discussion of electric cars today
The first cars were electric, starting in the 1820s and 1830s. About 1900, electric cars were the preferred cars in the
USA. Pushed into the background later by cheap petroleum, they are now making a comeback. Electronics &
technology advances have revolutionized Electric Vehicle (EV) design today.
This seminar will address key questions, starting with: Why should one drive an EV ? How does an electric car work ?
What are the different types ? What are the advances being made in batteries ? What is a Hybrid EV ? What is a Plug-
In Hybrid EV ( PHEV) ? How exactly do they work ?
What is the range of an electric car — for each type ? How can it be extended ? What are NEVs ?
How can one convert a regular car ( or wagon or pickup) into an EV ? This will be discussed in detail.
How can we integrate solar power with EV design ? What are some examples ?
How much do EVs cost — to own and to operate ? After a discussion of such questions, the seminar will be continued
outdoors with a demo/discussion of two to four live EVs on display there.
So Come & Learn How You can bring an Electric Car into your own life.
