Electric Drive, but not bragging about it 22.7.2014 deccanherald.com
Electric cars, by the nature of how their motors function, are capable of dispensing right-now torque in big, satisfying jolts. A stomp on the accelerator, even in a practical, commuter EV, can pin passengers to seats. Then there's Tesla's slingshot Model S, leading the campaign to convince consumers that electric cars need not be wimpy, showing that zero-emissions driving can go beyond just striking a leafy-green image. I've come to expect lightning blastoffs in electric cars, so it was a surprise to drive the 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive, the luxury brand's first battery-electric vehicle. In the hands of Mercedes engineers, the natural stoplight burst available from electric drivetrains has been civilized: available when needed, but not flaunted.

After hybrid success, Toyota gambles on fuel cell 22.7.2014 deccanherald.com
Rocket science long dismissed as too impractical and expensive for everyday cars is getting a push into the mainstream by Toyota, the worlds top-selling automaker. Buoyed by its success with electric-gasoline hybrid vehicles, Toyota is betting that drivers will embrace hydrogen fuel cells, an even cleaner technology that runs on the energy created by an electrochemical reaction when oxygen in the air combines with hydrogen stored as fuel. Unlike internal combustion engines which power most vehicles on roads today, a pure hydrogen fuel cell emits no exhaust, only some heat and a trickle of pure water.Fuel cells also boast greater efficiency than the internal combustion process, which expends about two-thirds of the energy in gasoline as heat. Toyotas fuel cell car will go on sale before April next year. Despite advantages that are seemingly compelling, the technology has struggled to move beyond its prototypes after several decades of research and development by industry and backing from governments. For ...

Pollution-plagued Manila set to spark an electric transport revolution 17.7.2014 The Guardian -- Front Page
Philippine capital road-tests ambitious and sustainable scheme to ease traffic congestion and pollution problems

Every morning, millions of commuters battle it out on Manila's roads and railways. The city of 12 million swells to 15 million during week days, forcing traffic speeds down to 5km per hour. During the rush hour, a 30-minute journey can take up to three hours.

In 2012, the Philippine capital's economy lost about 2.4bn pesos a day (£32m) as a result of its traffic jams. At this rate, the country stands to lose up to P6bn a day by 2030, according to the Japanese International Corporation Agency (Jica), which has been trying to reduce this mammoth infrastructure problem.
