An hour and a half flight west of London, the clocks tick a bit slower. Ireland is in the same time zone as the UK, an hour ahead of us, but in some Irish hamlets you might think the clock stopped a hundred years ago. Stately castles that have stood the test of time, in between lush green hills with peacefully grazing sheep and in the distance the sound of the Atlantic.

Preview of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (PPIHC) 2024

The legendary hill climb on Pikes Peak, a mountain in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in the US state of Colorado, will take place on Sunday, June 2022, 22. And the roaring loud roar of the tuned combustion engines, which lose around a third of their power on the way to their destination, which is on the summit at 4.301 meters above sea level, due to the thin mountain air, is increasingly put under pressure by powerful electric cars. In 2014, the Stromer took second and third place. In 2015, the electric car with the bulky vehicle designation “e0 PP03 Elektroauto” from the Latvian manufacturer “Drive e-0” won the open vehicle class for the first time.

The history of the electric motor as an automobile drive

The history of the electric motor does not begin in the technologically advanced modern age: the first electric vehicle was presented to the public as early as 1881. Gustave Trouvé equipped his “Trouvé Tricycle” - a three-wheeled, electrically powered vehicle - with 2 electric motors, which obtained their energy from 6 lead-acid batteries. The vehicle reached a top speed of 12 km / h.
