Electric Vehicles and the BMW i3

Sun Apr 02, 2017 2:16 am

After 5500 downloads of my book on EVs and the i3, I’ve updated to the third edition - ‘Electric Vehicles and the BMW i3’ . For this latest edition there is some new text and graphs on dynamics, emissions, batteries, battery management , cell balancing, charging profiles, temperature impacts and charger efficiencies have been added. A new section on the impact of Power Transistors has also been included. Some amendments and corrections have been implemented throughout following Art Isbell’s forensic proof reading.

In June of 2016, after just a year of owning my i3, I published a book about Electric Vehicles and the i3. The book was a compilation of the key things I would have liked to have known when I first bought an Electric Vehicle. I covered performance, range, temperature, key components, battery technology, charging, heating and cooling and the range extender. Reviews were positive - Autovolt magazine describing it “If you’re after a more technical understanding of electric cars, this brilliant ebook by David bricknell is a fascinating in-depth look at the inner workings of an electrified car.” As of March 2017. the book has ‘sold’ over 5500 copies.

The book remains available on iTunes but no longer through Issuu due to Ts&Cs. I'm looking at non-Apple publishers.

For those who have read the first and second editions and for those new to the book, I hope you enjoy the update.

Thank you for all your hard work on this. I downloaded on iTunes and want to share with my non Apple friends. Is there any way to "publish" this as as a .pdf file ?

I am looking into a non-Apple platform to promote the book. I'll post again once I have something sorted.

You are doing great hard work. I also had been looking for a useful Electric car buyers guide and found your book. Actually one of my friends told me about it and truly it was just so beneficial for me to know about everything about these electric vehicles.
