Research into batteries will give electric cars the same range as petrol cars

i-air batteries are a promising opportunity for electric cars. "If we succeed in developing this technology, we are facing the ultimate breakthrough for electric cars, because in practice, the energy density of Li-air batteries will be comparable to that of petrol and diesel, if you take into account that a combustion engine only has an efficiency of around 30 percent," says Tejs Vegge, senior scientist in the Materials Research Division at Risø DTU.

If batteries with an energy density this great become a reality, one could easily imagine electrically powered trucks. The electric car was introduced by Edison as early as 1900. But, as we all know, Henry Ford's vehicle concept with a noisy, smelly combustion engine won the race to become people's most treasured individual means of transport, despite the fact that in principle, the combustion engine is hopeless.

  • Buying an electric car is a good idea. You can see that its engine is an electric battery operated and is chargeable. You don't even need expensive gas in a car for a happy car driving. When people purchase electric automobiles, they get federal tax credits. In addition there are an increasing number of third-party businesses that convert typical cars to electric vehicles, and those cars qualify for the EV tax credit too. If you want car finance for bad credit , you can get a brand new electric car.

  • Electric car is battery operated. There is a need to charge it. Federal law grants a tax credit to people who buy electric vehicles. However, there are only a small number of EV models from major manufacturers. There are some businesses that convert new vehicles, some of which qualify for the EV tax credit also. If you want to buy an electric car, you can go to car finance for bad credit for assistance.
