In this blog: Experimental train runs on battery power for 45 minutes.

Why would a train need batteries when there's wires above to get power from? The answer is – so we stop using diesel trains and be able to travel to distant areas without electrical infrastructure for the trains.

In this blog: They are not quite alike, but some people find it interesting to compare Tesla Model S P85 and BMW i3.

These are both so "open" – BMW i3 with all this roominess at the front seats and the brave move by BMW, and Tesla Model S being created by a group of such open minded people, dared to put 17" screen inside to replace the boring center console buttons, and more.

The German-Chinese joint-venture BYD Daimler New Technology Co., Ltd. (BDNT) unvieled its new electric creature under the DENZA brand at Auto China 2014. The "advertized" range of 300 km though sounds a bit too much, as the calculations clearly shows...
