electric car - JOLT!: The
JOLT!: The Impending Dominance Of The Electric Car And Why America Must
Fasten your seatbelts, America. The electric
vehicle is about to take us on one heck of a ride. So states James Billmaier in
his groundbreaking book on the impending electric vehicle (EV) revolution. He
argues that in addition to being a blast to drive, EVs will come to dominate the
personal auto market in the coming years because they are cheaper to run and
cheaper to maintain. Adopting EVs will also allow America to put the brakes on
sending hundreds of billions of dollars a year to OPEC, helping us achieve
energy independence within a decade.
But that’s only part of the story.
Billmaier outlines how EVs will propel the coming “electriconomy,” a
consumer-driven economic boom that will be ignited as our society is transformed
from an oil-based economy to one powered by electricity. The electriconomy will
dwarf all previous technology revolutions—it will be bigger than the computer
and Internet markets combined—and will catapult the economy of whichever nation
masters it. It’s a race we need to win for reasons of national and economic
security, Billmaier says, but we need to move fast. China is determined to own
the EV space itself, an outcome that would be as detrimental to U.S. national
security as our current dependence on foreign oil is today. In these pages, he
describes what we need to do to win the EV race—what America must do to take
In 2007 ZAP settled on the design shown here,
coming around to resembling the current physical form, it was around this time
that the name emerged, Alias. This design used the single front headlamp with
the dual triangular running lamps. Note the large grill pattern. This concpet
was eventually adopted and engineering models were drafted.
