It’s no secret that the batteries in electric vehicles still have some issues that need to be worked out, before they can be considered a viable option to replace fossil fuel burning vehicles. Currently, they take a long time to charge, the charge doesn’t last long enough for the vehicle to travel long distances, […]
Electric vehicles are the best way to combat rising air pollution and carbon emissions. However, their success depends on battery performance. Nanotechnology scientists continually search for the perfect battery to reduce the price, increase durability and offer more miles on every charge. One specific battery made of nickel, cobalt and aluminum (NCA) offers […]
North Carolina State University researchers have developed new software that estimates how much farther an electric vehicle can drive before needing to recharge. The new technology requires drivers to enter their destination, then the software automatically compiles the data on a host of variables to predict the energy use for the vehicle. […]
