About Future of Electric Cars

These vehicles are already in the market already but in selected countries in the world. The real realization of more cars in our streets is expected to be in early 2018. Companies such as General Motors is said to be preparing to release their Chevrolet EV within weeks from now. Nissan is also said to have gearing closer to releasing their EV before 2020.

Volkswagen showcased their electronic car model which they are calling it e-Golf I.D recently in an exhibition in France. It is one of the first one to be produced by their group- Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB) that deals specifically electric cars. They are set to release it in 2020 with its reproduction set to begin in 2025.

It is expected to have a 400-600km of range. The I.D electric motor is expected to be placed in the back of the car. This will allow the front while to have a lighter turning circle. The I.D will also have a pilot mode. This means that the car will have an option for self-drive. This will give the driver time to chat with passengers or do other stuff.

Its horsepower will be placed in the rear will have zero emotions and with very little noise which is great for environment preservation.

Amazingly the I.D will have no door mirrors commonly known as a side mirror. It will have an inbuilt camera in the front giving you the picture of how your rear, right and left look like.

The headlights are the one thing that will leave you excited. They look at the driver when approaching and signal when in I.D pilot mode. They will also look at the pedestrians and other road users as well as turning to the direction the car wants to move. Isn’t that amazing? That is the great future we are soon to see.

Installations Car Charging Stations

An electrician experienced with car-charging stations is of paramount importance for this project. The electrician can offer advice about household amperage needed to support the system, circuit breakers to purchase, and installation location for optimal convenience and reasonable installation costs. It’s also common to make upgrades to a home’s electrical wiring to handle the increased load from the electric automobile.

You may need to get a special permit to operate certain charging apparatus at your home. To apply for a permit, submit documentation to your local municipality for review. You may need to visit the office in person, or you might be able to apply for the permit online. Expect to pay a fee for the permit. It’s also likely that the local municipality performs inspections of all car-charging stations within its jurisdiction. Once you have your equipment installed, schedule the inspection. A building inspector will check the location of the installation, any upgrades you have made to your electrical system, and any modifications you have made to the structure of your garage. As long as the equipment and modifications fall within local codes, you should receive your permit without problem.

Turbo Wastegate Works

1) Burn more fuel

2) Make more power

3) Make more exhaust to drive the turbine

If left unchecked, the cycle repeats 1,2,3 1,2,3 1,2,3 until BOOM! Your engine self-destructs. Not the most effective arrangement, so we want a solution to keep your power from climbing, unchecked. Enter the wastegate. The wastegate is actually a valve (literally, a “gate”) that permits a lot of the exhaust gas (waste) to bypass the turbine. Now we can add a fourth step:

4) The wastegate opens, allowing the turbine to slow, and the boost pressure (and by extension, the power) to fall. The cycle then repeats.Linked to the wastegate itself, is a wastegate actuator. This is just a spring loaded diaphragm that holds the wastegate closed, until some boost pressure is reached. As soon as the boost pressure is sufficient overcome the spring pressure, the wastegate is opened and the boost pressure falls. The cycle will repeat, if there’s sufficient exhaust pressure and boost (I.e., when you keep your foot in it).

Automatic Transmission

Automatic transmission parts rapidly becoming affordable

Up until the recent past, using or replacing its parts used to cost very high for customers, which thereby even discouraged many to use vehicles with the technology at all. However, the emergence of companies, which produce a large variety of its parts at affordable prices have ensured that the production cost and market price of automatic transmissions are now entering within the general affordable reach. With the entry of several third party manufacturers from Korea and China that are producing several parts in bulk at much lower rates, its parts are set to become even more affordable in the near future.

New developments that improve productivity

Several auto experts and magazines even today point out that it isn’t fuel efficient or powerful enough compared to manual transmissions. However, new smart technologies that integrate automatic transmission with state-of-the-art software have ensured that several new models using reliable parts can provide better performance and fuel efficiency compared to manual systems. It can be argued that the recent evolution of automatic transmission have ensured that it is a safer, better performing and a more economical alternative than manual ones.

Not just for passenger vehicles

With the increased demand for productivity and quality, this has been recognized as a technology that can be used with various plants and factory vehicles. Automatic transmission is more compatible with automation technologies that several modern factories are either already using or are planning to use. In fact, most self-driving or remotely operated vehicles extensively make use of its parts. Renowned companies also produce automatic transmission parts specifically for factories and industries.
