Honda and Hybrid Electric Vehicles

...1. Are hybrid electrical vehicles a radical innovation or an incremental innovation? Are they competence enhancing or competence destroying, and from whose perspective? How would you answer these questions for fuel cell vehicles? Hybrid electrical cars/vehicles could be considered an incremental innovation because they build on existing engine technology, and do not require big changes in the fueling infrastructure or in consumer behavior. It is still a bridging technology from current fossil energy and just supplemented by battery-powered emission that basically charged by fuel engine. When we looing at it from major stakeholders (customers, automakers, petroleum companies)’s point of view, the technology will likely be seen as competence enhancing, though it might be seen as competence destroying to an automaker that is unwilling to develop a hybrid electric vehicle. I would consider fuel-cell vehicles are a more radical innovation that requires more significant changes to be made to the body of a vehicle, to its engine, to the fueling infrastructure, and to consumer behavior. Fuel cell vehicles are competence destroying for the petroleum companies, gas stations and perhaps even for many automakers. They might be competence enhancing for battery makers (since the vehicles will require much larger and advanced batteries). Until we know more about the changes consumers will have to make to use fuel-cell vehicles, it is difficult to assess whether the technology will be...

Comparison of Co2 Emissions from Electric Vehicles and Internal Combustion Vehicles

...Comparison of CO2 Emissions from Electric Vehicles and Internal Combustion Engine Vehicles | | In order to determine if the emissions of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) was significantly less from electric vehicles (EV) compared to gasoline powered vehicles, an evaluation was conducted using 5 EV’s and 5 comparable gasoline powered vehicles that were driven 8,000 miles with the average CO2 emissions being measured. The results were that the average CO2 emissions for the EV’s were 4,329 lbs. and the average CO2 emissions for the gasoline powered vehicles were 6,433 lbs., which equates to a 32.7% difference. These results did answer our research question but raised subsequent questions as to whether electric vehicles are the long-term solution in reducing overall non-renewable energy. | | March 22, 2012 March 22, 2012 1.) Introduction The purpose of this experiment was to determine if the emissions of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from electric vehicles (EV) is significantly less than that of internal combustion vehicles (ICE). Our rational for this experiment is due to the increasing number of electric vehicles that are being manufactured and purchased and to answer the question: Is there really a significant positive impact on the environment or more of a psychological impact for society? To answer this question we began research on how the U.S. is getting its electricity. There are several sources of electricity in the U.S., with coal at 48.9%, natural gas at 20%, nuclear......

Electric Vehicle

...already started taking steps in this direction. In America, for example, The Obama administration has, set forth a goal of having one million electric-powered vehicles on U.S. roads by 2015, while some others have also proposed a medium-term goal where electric vehicles would consist of 20% of the passenger vehicle fleet by 2030 or approximately 30 million electric vehicles to contribute toward greener planet or reduce their carbon print. Many big automobile companies have also started taking steps in this direction by giving serious thought to development of battery operated vehicle or hybrid vehicles. Nissan Motor for example has already put a six billion dollars bet in the growing market for such vehicles. To those worried about the over dependence of their countries on exports of oil from foreign countries, development and deployment of electric vehicles will be a huge respite. Implementing stronger efficiency standards and imposing higher taxes on motor fuels are some steps in the direction to reduce over dependency on depleting natural resources, but achieving even greater reductions will require changing the way people power their transportation system or use vehicle/cars/public transportation to travel. To those worried about climate change, greenhouse emission and depleting ozone layer, electric cars, or battery powered vehicles could increasingly be considered a boon. Finally, to countries and states which are increasingly trying to reduce their atmospheric carbon......

Electric Vehicles Can Help Us Achieve Freedom from Oil

...Electric Vehicles Can Help us Achieve Freedom from Oil Has the United States ever done something to decrease the oil dependence? Are people trying to help and reduce the pollution? What is one solution? A solution could be starting to promote, and use electric cars, because they provide a viable alternative to gasoline-fueled cars, and because the benefits outweigh the cost of buying an electric car. Electric cars are a necessity for the future. They can help The United States to achieve freedom from oil, and they are good for the environment. It is known that electric cars produce zero CO2, and nitrous oxide emissions, since cars that use gasoline are responsible for around 25% of all global gas emissions. Promoting, and buying electric cars is going to help us keep the planet green, and it is going to save us money, why is it going to save us money? Because it may be that buying an electric car is more expensive than a normal one, but at the end, electric cars spend electricity, and electricity is cheaper than petrol, and it is a renewable resource. “About 3 cents per mile driven is all it costs to "fuel" a typical electric car today, assuming an electricity rate of 10 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). By contrast, at a pump price of $2.75 per gallon, a 25-mpg conventional car costs more than three times that amount.” (Renewable Energy, 2012). According to the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency, about 75 percent of the chemical energy stored in an......

...value of electric vehicles Rui Miao*, Fasheng Xu, Kai Zhang and Zhibin Jiang Department of Industrial Engineering and Logistics Management, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China (Received 22 June 2012; accepted 23 January 2014) Electric vehicles (EVs) are now widely acknowledged as a potential ideal means of transportation in the near future in terms of environmental protection and oil crisis. The possible success of the future market for EVs is based on how much of EVs’ value can be perceived by their potential customers. Thus, research on customer perceived value (CPV) of EVs can help us, and especially EV manufacturers, understand the main factors contributing to CPV and how to design suitable EVs that can yield higher CPV. This paper first constructs a multi-scale model for the measurement of CPV based on surveys conducted at Shanghai, China. Then, the decision-making trial and evaluation laboratory method is applied to evaluate the importance of every scale and depict the internal relations among different scales on the impact-relations map (IRM). Further, a novel version of the house of quality is created to conduct technical feasibility analysis for the improvement of each scale. Finally, market segmentation for EV industry is proposed and discussed based on the analysis of the IRM, which could be a practical strategy for EV manufacturers to design appealing EVs and deliver the proper value at the right cost to the right people.

International Marketing: Electric Cars in India

...Electric Cars in India [pic] Lindsey G. Silver Dr. Keith Dickinson BA 3374 International Marketing April 19, 2012 The electric car market in India offers only one product, Mahindra’s Reva. This is due to the lack of infrastructure support and the preference for cheaper cars. These operate on a regular charge from various electrical outlets instead of expensive foreign oil. The drawback is that the cars are an expensive buy. However, they are efficient and use cleaner energy. Also, the Indian government gives tax rebates for such purchases. The rising fuel prices in the country will create awareness of Electric Vehicle technology. As Indian oil companies increase fuel prices, car buyers could be facing some budget restrictions. Electric Vehicle (EV) technology may be the solution to beat the fuel price hike (Kannan, 2012, p. 1). Although consumers have begun to change to hybrid and diesel fuel, the cost is still greater than these options. The EV does not offer a variety of choices in the country and consumers are hesitant to change from gas to electric. The biggest advantage lies on its fuel economy. As the price of oil increases, this solution could improve lifestyles and a healthier environment. In addition to the greater cost, the Reva does not offer long distance capabilities. It runs about 80km per electricity charge because the lithium ion batteries hold a limited charge and have limited distance capabilities (Joshi, 2012...
