Welcome Back to the Blog on the “Future of E – Mobility” and today the discussion is simply about batteries.
Batteries are usually the main part in any Electric Vehicle (EV) as there is simply no internal combustion engine to power the wheels of the vehicle. Well, with being the most important part in an Electric Vehicle, it is the part that grabs the most attention because of 2 main questions:
- How much kilometers can it cover?
- Where do you dispose it after it is used in the vehicle?
Hence, this post is for answering these questions.
For the first question, the range of electric vehicles is increasing significantly currently being approximately a whopping 620 miles (Nearly 1000 Kilometers) by the Tesla Roadster which has not been launched commercially yet. So, change is taking place and it is fast. Plus, other Tesla cars also have a good 400 to 450 mile range and the Nissan Leaf having a low 168 mile range which is not low but it isn’t great.
For the next question, there is no specific place but innovation is taking place to use these used batteries in homes and in electric charging stations. Well, first of all this is a question because electric car batteries will get used up almost every 5 years and the first batch of used car batteries from the first generation of Electric car batteries are on their way to new destinations as well! As they are not yet bound to landfills, after a few years they might as their efficiency will get compromised some or the other day. Thus with every product, there are advantages and disadvantages.
In conclusion, electric car batteries are experiencing rapid change and innovations as it is one of the most pertinent part of the next generation of transport.
That is all for this post and hope you follow the blog as there will be new content everyday!
