  4. When I was changing my oil last week, I noticed a cable that was unhooked. Can anyone tell me where this needs to be plugged in at? The cable is at the front of my car in front of the condenser. I have no idea where it goes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  5. An electric car is an automobile that is propelled by one electric motor or more, using electrical energy stored in batteries or another energy storage device. Electric motors give electric cars instant torque, creating strong and smooth acceleration. The first electric cars appeared in the 1880s.[1] Electric cars were popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century, until advances in internal combustion engine technology and mass production of cheaper gasoline vehicles led to a decline in the use of electric drive vehicles. The energy crises of the 1970s and 1980s brought a short-lived interest in electric cars; although, those cars did not reach the mass marketing stage, as is the case in the 21st century. Since 2008, a renaissance in electric vehicle manufacturing has occurred due to advances in battery and power management technologies, concerns about increasing oil prices, and the need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.[2][3] Several national and local governments have established tax credits, subsidies, and other incentives to promote the introduction and adoption in the mass market of new electric vehicles depending on battery size and their all-electric range. Benefits of electric cars over conventional internal combustion engine automobiles include a significant reduction of local air pollution, as they do not emit tailpipe pollutants,[4] in many cases, a large reduction in total greenhouse gas and other emissions (dependent on the fuel and technology used for electricity generation[2][3]), and less dependence on foreign oil, which in several countries is cause for concern about vulnerability to oil price volatility and supply disruption.[2][5][6] Widespread adoption of electric cars faces several hurdles and limitations, however, including the higher cost of electric vehicles, the lack of recharging infrastructure (other than home charging) and range anxiety, the driver's fear of the batteries running out of energy before reaching their destination due to the limited range of most existing electric cars.[2][3] As of January 2014[update], the number of mass production highway-capable all-electric passenger cars and utility vans available in the market is limited to about 25 models, mainly in the United States, Japan, Western European countries and China. Pure electric car sales in 2012 were led by Japan with a 28% market share of global sales, followed by the United States with a 26% share, China with 16%, France with 11%, and Norway with 7%. The world's top selling highway-capable electric car ever is the Nissan Leaf, released in December 2010 and sold in 35 countries, with global sales of 100,000 units by mid January 2014, representing a 45% market share of worldwide pure electric vehicles sold since 2010.

  6. First off, I’m not a wacko left green person with an agenda to convert all cars to electric. Current technology allows the use of electric cars in certain applications. Daily commuter cars are one of those applications where electric cars can work very well. They are still expensive, and unless you think they are kind of cool, I doubt they are for you. I’m posting here because for years I’ve considered converting my Mg Midget to electric, but felt the battery technology wasn’t there. Putting lead acid batteries that weighed a ton and lasted 2 to 3 years wasn’t an option. The “new” LiFePo4 batteries didn’t have much testing, and buying them direct from China seemed risky at best. What changed my mind to finally do my conversion was that LiFePo4 batteries have now been verified as truly good batteries by many converters. There are now many reputable stateside sources for them, with multiply brands to choose from. The other components needed to convert a car have also matured. Putting them all together is still a bit tricky, and will take good research to get the car to behave they way you want to. The information on how to do this is free, and on the web. Various electric conversion forums have large amounts information posted on their sites. The members are also very wiling to help with specific questions. My MG Midget now has a 70 to 75 mile range at 55 mph. It weighs 200 lbs more than the original, and has better performance than the gas version, and drives very much like the original car. Yes, it cost more than most restored Midgets would, but it was less than most new cars cost. I have over 1500 miles on it so far and drive it almost every day. So if you are like me, and have been thinking about converting a car, I urge you to take another look at what is available today. My site has more information about my conversion and I encourage you to visit even if you just a person who like custom modifications to you vehicle. If you any questions please don’t hesitate to ask, I’ll be happy to answer them. www.electricmgmidget.com
