Electric car range testing explained How far do they go

first_img How they test electric cars to establish range and MPGe 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid review: Sip with subtlety Hyundai Nissan 5:05 Cooley On Cars Nissan For example, a 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus has a 68kWh battery. Divide that by 33.7kWh and you get about two “gallons” of electricity, which doesn’t sound like much until you know that EV motors are about 85% efficient compared to about 25% for gas engines. That allows a Leaf to get an average of 108 miles from each of its electric “gallons,” or 108 MPGe.On a plug-in hybrid, like a Hyundai Ioniq, you’ll see both MPGe and traditional gas MPG ratings, since plug-in cars have two powerplants. MPGe shows efficiency when the car is running in pure electric mode, while MPG reflects driving on the gas engine alone with as a hybrid of that and electric power. Testing pure electric range is similar to the EPA test cycles for gasoline economy, but is based on something called the SAE J1634 test specification for electric cars:The car is fully charged, then parked overnight.The car is mounted on a dynamometer, not tested on the road. Simulated city or highway driving is done on the dyno until the battery is spent and the miles driven are noted. The car is recharged from an AC source, not a DC fast charger. The energy required for full recharge is noted.That charge amount is divided by the miles driven to calculate gross MPGe.  Gross MPGe is multiplied by 0.7 to account for real-world factors like wind, terrain and HVAC use. But, depending where you live, you may want to give the EPA range rating a further haircut: A recent AAA test of five pure electric cars found that heater use in 20-degree weather resulted in an average 40% decrease of range and MPGe, while use of air conditioning in 95-degree weather resulted in about a 17% decrease. 2019 Toyota Prius AWD-e review: A thrifty hybrid with more grip Review • 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus review: A better EV, but maybe not the best Share your voice More From Roadshow Roadshowcenter_img Now playing: Watch this: 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better More about 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus Tags News • 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus officially achieves 226-mile range, but there’s a catch An email from Peter A. of Vancouver, Washington, posed a practical question: How do you know an electrified car, like the Bolt, Leaf or Model 3, will really deliver the range it advertises? And, in his case, he’s looking for a plug-in hybrid, like a Toyota Prius or Hyundai Ioniq, which is an even thornier matter.First, understand MPGe, the miles per gallon equivalent: It’s a metric that assumes a gallon of gas contains 115,000 BTUs of energy and equates that to 33.7 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electrical energy.  Comments 2 Preview • 2019 Nissan Leaf Plus first drive: Expanding the EV’s appeallast_img read more

EC officials for army deployment to ensure fair polls

first_imgElection CommissionField-level officials of the election commission (EC) are in favour of deploying defence personnel as regular law enforcement to create confidence among voters during the next general elections.They came up with these recommendations as their opinion was sought in order to amend 14 laws, rules and directives ahead of the 11th parliamentary polls.Reinsertion of the provision for ‘No’ option in the ballot paper is another of the 58 recommendations the officials submitted to the law section of the EC secretariat.EC officials said the draft recommendations will be placed at the EC’s consultation meetings with the political parties, civil society leaders and election experts likely to begin soon.The armed forces — army, navy, and air force — were included as a law enforcement agency alongside police, armed police, RAB, ansar, BGB (then BDR), and the coast guard, in the amended version of the Representation of People Order during the past caretaker government in 2008. However, in 2013, the armed forces were excluded from the definition of law enforcement agency as per RPO.Inclusion of the armed forces as a law enforcement agency is being emphasised in view of the fact that the election would be held under the incumbent political government. It is believed to be important for creating an even field for all political parties.”Army deployment is necessary to create confidence in the minds of the voters. In fact, it would be hard to hold a fair election without the army. We cannot understand it why it had been removed from the definition of law enforcement,” said former election commissioner M Sakhawat Hossain.The main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) has all along favoured army deployment while the ruling Awami League wants to keep the army only as striking force.BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed reiterated the party’s demand for deployment of the armed forces and added that the BNP wants election-time supportive government for the sake of fair election.AL presidium member, health minister Mohammad Nasim said the army should be deployed during the next general elections the way current election law has defined.However, Jatiya Party leader GM Quader said, if the army deployment creates confidence among the political parties, army should be included as law enforcement in the electoral laws.Although the EC officials recommended reintroduction of the provision for allowing ‘No’ vote as a choice of electorates, both the AL and the BNP do not consider it important.* This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Khawaza Main Uddin.last_img read more
