Electric Powered Vehicles come in many types and appearance, and the good thing is just like in anything in life, it caters to individual tastes.

Sports car enthusiasts for instance, will be glad to note that there is a high-powered sports car in the market with an all-electric option. Association of Edison Illuiminating Companies

The Verge featured one of these in its website. “one of them is Audi’s R8 sports car, which now includes an e-tron option. Instead of the V10 petrol engine that can take the R8 to 100kmh in 3.2 seconds, the e-tron model uses only electric power to achieve a 3.9-second 0-to-100 time. That’s still some pretty awesome acceleration, but the real innovation of this new electric car is in the density of its battery. Audi has almost doubled energy storage — from 49kWh on its first electric platform to the current 92kWh — and done so without requiring any extra space. Energy density has, as a result, grown from 84Wh/kg to 154Wh/kg. With a few modifications made to the electric version of the car — such as the crazy-looking wheels that appear specifically designed to minimize drag — this combines for a claimed range in excess of 450km / 279.6 miles.”

Off Grid Quest could not hide its excitement over this come back. “With rumors about the return of the surfers craze, the hippie love machine might just be coming back!  The Herbie-like purr of the motor coming down the drive will be replaced by an electric engine that can be charged at home.  If you live under solar panels, this will be a move in a very green direction. Since its launch in the early 1950s, the Volkswagen Westfalia Camper has been an enduring classic, an icon of cross-country adventures and the traveling lifestyle. Production ceased in 2003, but speaking to Autocar  at the New York Auto Show earlier this year, board member Dr Heinz-Jakob Neusser revealed that the company is soon to unveil a concept Camper that would revive the classic van as an electric vehicle.”

To make the electric car technology even more mainstream, Automobile Manufacturer Ford has made its patent available to other manufacturers as shared in the website IFL Science.

“The company has more than 650 electrified vehicle patents. They filed over 400 of them in 2014 alone, and that makes up more than 20 percent of all the patents they applied for that year. Ford has another thousand patents pending. Some of the patents available for purchase by other automakers include technology for battery charge balancing to extend battery run time and overall life, temperature dependent regenerative braking to maximize the energy that’s recaptured, and a driving behavior feedback interface to help improve fuel economy. “
