On November 22nd 1999 the first successful run took place of a revolutionary type of vehicle. It used no gasoline but was electrically powered from the 400-volt mains, and was many times more efficient than a conventional car. Apart from the wheels it had only one moving part, the fan runner and motor rotor, built as a unit. The design is maintenance-free and in full size production is expected to have a service life of at least 50 000 hours. The body is a spheroid of minimum drag and optimum strength to mass ratio. It has a drag coefficient (Cd) of 0.05 and is lighter than a conventional design. In a world where gasoline prices are rising daily and a scarce resource is becoming exhausted, it makes sense to use electric power for motor vehicles. Motoring without gasoline describes the continuous development of electric transport systems by Talbot Electric (Pty) Ltd, a research and development company incorporated in the Republic of South Africa.
