I must admit I honestly know far less about electric cars then I do about how Singapore’s first victim to terrorism, Ms Lo Hwei Yen, had been shot and killed in The Oberoi Trident, in Mumbai.
One can never be too sure what is in store for us tomorrow. In the sunday times report, her two sisters said they ” want to know what exactly happened to their sister in her last few hours at the Oberoi ” …….
That reminds me of a scene in the movie ” The Last Samurai “, when the Japanese emperor ask Tom Cruise how his ( emperor ) teacher had died on the battlefield:
Emperor : Tell me how he died
Tom cruise : No…. I will tell you how he lived.
From the reports I had read about Ms Ho, I think she had lived a glorious and fulfilling life and my deepest condolence goes to her parents, husband and families. A man does what he can…. until his destiny is revealed.
Now, talking about electric cars, I know they run on electric and so should be cheaper and kinder to the environment. I have no idea how long they can run on electric before a charge or how long can the rechargeable battery last.
But come 3rd Dec 08, “the first and only highway capable Electric Car in the region”, according to its founder Kian Wee, will be present in Money Mastery Toastmasters Club.
Kian Wee, who is also a member of Money Mastery Toastmasters club will be giving us a special talk segment about electric cars.
As I was told to do a post on electric cars on our toastmaster’s blog, I did some research online and found that someone was already selling a china made electric car in 88DB.com directory some time back in Jan 08.
And another report says that there were currently 3 petrol-electric hybrid cars in the local market: the Toyota Prius and the Honda Civic Hybrid and the Lexus RX400h.
So what is so special about the Magic EV? For now, i know it carries a unique registration plate number “MAGIC EV“, I vaguely heard that it has patented battery technology that enables more power and longer driving distance.
Transportation is the largest consumption and demand of energy from oil. Of all the pollutants and green house gases released into the atmosphere, transport accounts for 25% worldwide.
Each year, in assess of 10 billion tones of CO2 are emitted into the earth atmosphere. There’re an estimated 825 million vehicles worldwide today… Think about what we as a nation can do to save our environment by switching to electric cars.
And for more details, do join me on the 3rd of Dec 08 at 7.30 pm for an up close and touchy affair with Magiv EV. It will be parked at Safra Toa Payoh for the showcase.
Sneak peak at what will be on the road in 2010…
