When understanding motives it is a good idea to look behind the obvious. Large corporates do not have social welfare programs for the sake of it.
Everyone knows the numerous benefits to electric cars, zero emissions, mainly because of their excellent record for saving gas. However, what some people don’t know is that the new technology in electric cars is helping them reach blazing speeds that rival the performance of a Porsche or BMW, and compete on some racecourses with […]
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. […]
People are hailing the lithium ion battery as being the gold standard in the industry because they can be recharged hundreds of times and are excellent for providing the power needed to run many different devices, including electric cars. The only problem is that lithium isn’t cheap and it could get even more expensive if […]
Electric car engineers have always wanted to solve the problem of weight in batteries. For the longest time, bigger and heavier battery have been used for vehicles that need to go over long distances, since they can afford to supply the needed energy to complete the trip. This quality in a battery can be a problem […]
Not only have electric cars become a reality, but they have become increasingly more a part of everyday life. However, while electric cars may be good for the planet, some people are worried their magnetic fields may not be safe in regards to the driver’s health.
