Trucks, those road going behemoths that spew millions of tons of diesel related junk into the air every year, are essential to the global economy. If it’s in your home, it probably spent some time being hauled by truck from the factory to the store where you bought it.
Siemens is building an electric highway for trucks in an industrial region of Sweden. The pilot program will cut emissions and fuel use by 50% says Siemens.
Diamond Aircraft and Siemens are moving forward on an experimental hybrid airplane based upon Diamond’s DA 40. The testing phase will last 2-3 years.
The largest truck in the world is a monster. It’s crazy big and weighs a modest 360 tons when empty, or up to 800 tons. The GVW BelAZ 75710, a mining truck,
The Siemens RACE concepts takes all of the separate processors in a car and centralizes them, giving developers the same access smartphone apps have.
Siemens will build an electrified highway connecting the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach to reduce vehicle emissions with its electrified trucks.
America’s aging rail system is woefully out-of-date, but a recent order for 32 of Sieman’s hybrid “Charger” locomotives could bring new life to old railways.
A hundred years ago, most major cities relied on trains and electric trolleys to move most of their citizenry around. These days cars and trucks rule the roads of America, although an old idea might soon find a modern application. I am talking about overhead trolley power lines electrifying hybrid trucks, allowing for long journeys […]
The Electric Vehicle Symposium is a conference where electric vehicle makers can meet and exchange knowledge. There are four days of presentations from a variety of panels of experts. Engineers present their latest research and results of current projects, which is fascinating for those of us interested in finding out the very latest news in electric vehicles.
There is something happening with electric cars that not even the most ardent detractors can argue against; they are becoming something of an accessory for rich people. With the Geneva Auto Show just a week away, Roding Automotive has announced that its Roadster 23 will be on display. What won’t be on display is an […]
The Spanish tuning house RBM Sport has developed a “bolt on” package that allows Porsche’s Boxster S to run on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, or “autogas” in Europe). Christened the Porsche Boxster “Ecologic,” the car can be started and run on conventional gasoline, and “switched” to LPG from inside the cabin. RBM claims the little Porsche […]

In fact, the whole “hybrid” thing has become so ubiquitous lately that brands like Buick and Chevrolet don’t even call their hybrids hybrids anymore. In other words, you’d be forgiven for assuming that at least a few of […]
[social_buttons] Sven Holthusen runs the EDISON project at Siemens’ Energy Sector in the Denmark branch of the international engineering giant. The EDISON project is working on raising charging power to as much as 300 kW so that batteries can be recharged on the go, in as little as six minutes. The idea is to replicate […]
