Electric cars are making big waves in the automobile world. These noise-free, pollution-free and high-performance vehicles are expected to make their I.C. engine counterparts obsolete by 2025. This video will unveil the hidden technologies behind the Tesla Model S, which recently became the world’s fastest accelerating car. We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and above all, the synchronized vehicle mechanism, in a logical, step-by-step manner. The working and features of Tesla car is explained here with help of animation.

Hey there, team of Munro & Associates engineers from Detroit the motor is a simple induction one and by incorporating magnets in the cage of rotor simple three phase alternator is achieved for regenerative breaking which returns energy back to the battery... To reduce eddy current losses in the rotor magnets have to have isolated sections just like the iron core... Nothing new, but makes the motor reliable and cheep to manufacture...

Why so serious (4 days ago)
Choosing car's base for battery. Isn't bad choice. One scratch and lithium car can burns the driver much faster than petrol car. And making an in build battery is not good idea. What about racing? After some laps cars wait an hour for recharge. And what kind of future is this. Petrol car needs front for its engine. But electric car running with 90% useless parts on roads.
hitty9 (5 days ago)
Yes, useful for around town driving, but no over the road practicality visible yet. Who wants to stop every two hundred miles for an hour or two to recharge? And electricity is not free. Rates will go up. If everyone had an electric car, we don't come close to having recharging capacity anytime soon.

In my place, We did have a electric scooter and they were very good like you said, no smoke and very quiet, but there's some problem, no mechanic can fix it if the problem accrue and the dealer advice us to buy a new one. so here we are using it just like a disposeable, when it's stock or not working then you have to throw it and buy new one. That's why people here in my place stop buying electric motorcycle.
Miguel lopez (12 days ago)
Have you ever considered the scooter seller was more interested in selling a whole new scooter then just charging for the repair? Apple does this with their computers and despite their much higher complexity can have major issues fixed fairly easily (usually a burnt out resistor or connector) scooters are very fixable but just like most mass manufactured items it's not cost effective to repair them.

The idea of rental of universal battery pack is awsome...still the range of the car can be enhanced by solar panels or by decreasing the distance between rcharge stations...especially outside urban areas...
đeri662 (20 days ago)
If I understand correctly, you have an idea of puting solar panels on a car. What could be the area of solar panels on it? Maybe 2 m^2? You could maybe get 400 W in midday. That' approx. half of a HP.

The main focus is the electric energy storage....lithium ion , as far as i know, takes time to recharge and is dependant of cycles of charge-discharge...hydrogen based cells are not safe...

I bought a used Fiat 500e for 10k recently. Fell in love with it instantly! Man, EVs are just a different animal. Quiet, no shifting gears, super fast acceleration, and the heavy battery pack adds stability and handling. Best part is I got into a pilot program with my utility company and they installed a level 2 charger in my garage for free! If I charge during low peak hours, they bill me at half the normal rate. Never going back to ICEs!

sir which device is used for acceleration in electric car
đeri662 (23 days ago)
Batteries power an electric motor (or electric motors) through a power converter. The mechanical power from electric motors is transferred usually through a single speed transmission to the wheels (sometimes directly to the wheels).

You buy one then the battery needs replacing the imeiv with a poxy 16Kw battery costs 19000 euro in France ,24Kw leafs were doing 36000 then loosing 2 bars couple that with only charging up to the recomended 80% of charge and your range has gone down to 20 something miles , sometimes they get a glitch and its back to the expensive diagnostic again then they modual problems , use the heater and the range drops use the air con and the range drops ,fast charge to much it fks the battery if the battery is in a hot environent it needs a Lizard if its in the winter the battery needs a heater they cost tens of thoudands of $$$$$$$$$$ are expensive to insure you need a home charger as the new trend is bigger batteries more range they are just to much fking around and they are to heavy in the snow with their skiny tyres fkem im staying with my little Renault its petrol i dont get any range problems and can use the aircon and heater any time with no drain on the mileage /range plus i can fix my car my self the parts are very cheap compared to EVs i get 31 around town and 47 + on a run If the petrol dries up tomorrow i can go LPG ! My new contract forom the energy company came so this year im paying #178 more this year for exactly the same energy i used last year , And when the power cuts come my car will start up and go and the EVs wont !
Miguel lopez (1 month ago)
well the model 3 is making its way to Europe, it cost $53,000 with a 75kwh battery that gets 500km range at a weight of 3,900lbs , it only looses 20% of its capacity after 500,000 km driven, it looses 7 miles an hour with he heater, fast charging it multiple times wont fuck the battery but will degrade it a bit faster, the battery has liquid cooling it can handle hot environments, the benifit of EVS is lower maintenance and cheaper cost to fuel up.

Nikola Tesla didn't invent THE induction motor, he patented A motor design. Walter Baily made the first induction motor in 1879 based off Francois Arago's 1824 work. Tesla's motor was demonstrated two years AFTER Galileo Ferraris' similar 3-phase commutatorless AC induction motor was demonstrated in 1885. Westinghouse paid Ferraris in addition to Tesla for their patents when developing his AC power system.

Can't agree with low response to fuel cut in combustion engines. Well, if you mean just just smaller fuel/air ratio - yes, it won't work fast. But changing ignition moment is very effective - most cars use this method to avoid wheels slip.

Why not use a stirling cold gas V-6 engine being fueled by a helium cryogenic piston that produces liquid Argon gas that supplies the cold temperatures for the stirling cold gas engine and has a cooling system for the electric motor's and for the use of superconductor's with the stirling cold gas engine's fly wheel's spining two drum motor high frequency electrical power generator's passed through the superconductor's that intern power the electric motor? This could also be used in aircraft and helicopters which would give them unlimited range by not having to recharge batteries? 😟😕

Nice cars, but still cars. Too many cars in one place (such as cities) doesent work. Los Angeles scrapped its huge streetcar system and replaced it with highways. Now, if all those cars on those highways became Teslas (or similar) by a stroke of magic tomorrow, it would not help the underlying problem: Cars cannot solve the transportation needs of a city. For that, you need public transport. Otherwise, nice & well made video. :)

Man just looking at the efficiency graph by RPM is almost enough. This is the future (not necessarily Tesla, electric vehicles in general). I find it perplexing that many companies (and politicians) are opposing this to keep their short-term gains although we all know what happens to those who try to swim against the flow of time...

+đeri662, but still, I saw there is a Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-sound coming from Renault's ZOE electric car when it's moving, the Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-sound is coming from a speaker on High volumes to warn the pedestrians to the danger of high speeds, the in the Renault ZOE car, the Induction motor is at the front wheels, because all the renault cars are front wheel driven, but back before Ford's T-model a lot of Electric car are driven by brushed DC motors, the reason is why DC motors, because the brushed DC motor is the only one motor wich is spinning directly from te battery without any digital controller, in today's Ekectric cars when the driver switch to shunt mode, the PWS (Pedestrian Warning System) creates Beep-Beep-Beep-sound, otherwise the PWS (Pedestrian Warning System) creates Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-sound
đeri662 (1 month ago)
I think that's what you hear when you are listening to EV accelerating, not the motor. It's still a lot quieter than an IC motor

I wouldn't recommend buying an electric vehicles. The battery pack is too expensive. The battery pack alone costs just as an average used vehicle which is around $5,000 depending on models. If nothing happens to the battery pack, then it would be a great vehicle, but if the battery pack dose goes bad, 90% of the average citizens can't afford it.

so how does the induction motor transfer its rotation into spinning wheels any different from the gasoline engine i didnt gather that? they are both using transmissions
MrWalker1000 (1 month ago)
+Miguel lopez i heard it should be good for 12 years
Miguel lopez (1 month ago)
+MrWalker1000 depending if no defect accrues or pre mature failure the battery should theoretically be good for 500k miles before degradation brings it below 70% original capacity but thats being optimistic.
MrWalker1000 (1 month ago)
+Miguel lopez well battery is always getting better and better. And electric cars should also last way longer than gas cars fight. Will the battery last a long time?
