BVS Archive

Who has control of the BVS archive now? At one point there were plans to put a lot of it online. What has happened with that idea?

History of the PSA electric vehicle programme

Does anyone have any links that explain the PSA electric vehicle programme of the 1990s? I would love to find out the history of why they were built, roughly how many were produced and so on. Also, does anyone have any information on other Peugeot electric cars? I believe they built some back in aro...

Re: EV thieving little g!ts !!

Can I stand up for the police at this point? I've always had excellent assistance from the police whenever I have needed them. I had a car stolen and they caught the people responsible and recovered the car. I was confronted with an intruder in my own home and they caught him within three hours. I w...

Re: EVs are quieter than ICE cars - now there's news for you!

The latest news from the world of Internal Combustion Engines is that BMW are working on virtually silent diesel engines using speakers to cancel out the engine noise.

Electric car charging point in Leamington Spa

I've just come back from the official opening of the charging points in Leamington Spa. There are two charging bays at St. Peter's car park and two more at Covent Garden car park. Up to two hours charging is free, although you still have to pay the normal car parking charge. The charging bay at St. ...

Re: Anyone got any experience of NUMAX CXV batteries?

Well, the CVX batteries are available as 113Ah batteries as well as the smaller sizes. 500 cycles isn't a lot, but it isn't the worst either. Although CCA is for cold cranking, it is also a useful figure for peak drain as typically the motors only need 5-8 seconds of peak drain - depending on how yo...

Anyone got any experience of NUMAX CXV batteries?

Has anyone got any experience of NUMAX CXV batteries with electric vehicles? I'm attracted to them because they are a sealed battery, offer up to 1,000 CCA and are available at competitive prices. I'm specifically interested in the NUMAX CXV31MF 110ah battery. The vehicle I want to use them in will ...

Re: Details for next years UK electric car subsidies announced

I agree with what you say about a lot of the Government plans. But I think they're doing this with the best intentions... and just getting it wrong. In the case of the electric car subsidies, they've done exactly the same all over again. They've scored some cheap political points by announcing the s...

Re: Details for next years UK electric car subsidies announced

The first low-cost electric cars (i.e. sub £20k) are really going to be aimed at people who are predominantly driving shorter distances or driving around towns. A car with an advertised 100 mile range and 70mph top speed won't be able to do 70mph for 100 miles. For an electric car to be practical fo...

Re: Details for next years UK electric car subsidies announced

The Reva NXR is just about usable for me - 134km/day - but I doubt it'd do 134km in the rain, with the lights on at its top speed of 64mph on the motorway. Of course it wouldn't. I know of no commercially available electric car that can, other than the £90,000 Tesla. If you are regularly planning o...
