Energy Saving: Electric Car Era Comes

After the financial crisis, energy saving and carbon reducing become common. Oil and electric cars or electric cars are becoming into the future trend. Gas-electric hybrid vehicles have become the best-selling cars in Japan this year. On the Tokyo Motor Show, Toyota Motor Corporation, on the same time when its small hybrid car Prius achieves great success, will also expand its hybrid vehicle lineup and push the hybrid cars into high-end.

金融危机后,节能减碳蔚然成风,油电车或电动车成未来趋势,油电混合动力汽车今年已成为日本最畅销的车款。本次东京车展,丰田汽车公司在其小型油电混合轿车Prius取得极大成功的同时,也将扩充其油电混合车阵容,把油电混合轿车推向高档。

Although the trend of electric cars can be seen now, if they would take one place in tens of millions of vehicles in the global automotive market and come into the average family, there is still a long way to go. But with the rise of environmental consciousness of all countries, particularly developed countries, electric cars have a prospect. If governments actively support on more investment in the popularity of the charging infrastructure, perhaps in the near future electric cars will be seen everywhere all over the world.

虽然电动车趋势可见,但想要在全球数千万辆的汽车市场中占有一席之地,进入普通家庭,还有很长的路要走。不过随着各国,特别是发达国家的环保意识抬头,电动车的前景看好。如果各国政府积极扶持,在充电基础设施的普及上多投入,也许不久的将来电动车就会纵横世界了。

Thomas Edison strongly advocated a large production of cell vehicles a century ago. Although they failed ultimately in competition with gasoline vehicles, Tortoise and the Hare competition between cell vehicles and gasoline vehicles continued to be the centuries and turtles have finally seen the dawn of victory recently.

百年前发明家爱迪生即极力倡导电池车辆量产,虽然最终在与汽油车竞争中失败,然而电池车和汽油车的龟兔赛跑仍持续了上百年,乌龟们终于在最近看到了胜利的曙光。

There have been three big problems to promote electric vehicles. One is vehicle speed, second life and the third charge (or power-up) time. These three issues are all relative to battery. Since the electric motor and vehicle transmission technologies are developed, electric car battery technology becomes the major technical obstacle.

一直以来,电动车辆难以推广有三个大的问题,一是车辆速度,二是续航能力,三是充电(或称为加电)的时间。这三个问题都和电池有关,因为电动机和车辆传动系统技术都非常发达,所以电池技术成为电动车的主要技术障碍。

Vehicle replacement is difficult only relying on the promotion of some companies, even if Toyota or a giant company like General Motors is still beyond the capacity. There must be government support on heavy investment with other social sectors. In this regard, Tokyo, Japan walks once again at the forefront.

车辆换代仅仅靠企业推动难以进行,即使是丰田或者通用汽车这样的巨型企业都仍然力所不及,必须有政府大力支持甚至大力投资,以及社会其他行业的配合。在这方面,日本东京再一次走在前列。

In addition to the general passenger electric car, buses become popular all-electric in Japan. The three major bus manufacturers Hino, Isuzu and Mitsubishi FUSO are beginning to try to produce electric buses, hoping to achieve practical application within two years.

电动车除了一般乘用车之外,巴士也开始流行全电式,日本三大巴士厂家日野、五十铃和三菱FUSO都开始着手试做电动巴士,希望在两年内实现实用化。

Some traditional concepts of the car were upside down. The electric car combines Internet, mobile phones and other functions. Leaf can use the iPhone to enable or disable air-conditioning and other facilities in the car, and can be remotely controlled to understand the remaining capacity of the battery. Owners via the Internet "global data centers" know car information about their status and location and can be able to remotely control some features of the car.

一些传统汽车的概念也被颠覆了,电动车融合了网路、手机等功能。Leaf就可使用iPhone来启动或关闭车内的空调等设施,并可以遥控了解电池的剩余容量。车主还可通过网路上的全球数据中心来了解自己爱车的现状和位置等情报,并能远距离操控汽车的某些功能。
