The researchers at Penn State University have found a way to make smaller batteries for electric cars. Keeping the current massive price increase in mind, it is said to conserve precious resources. It also charges faster, which addresses the concern many people have regarding EVs and the number of hours it takes to charge.
According to the research, building a 90 kWh electric vehicle pack with a 300-mile cruise range is now possible. However, the use of massive batteries to alleviate range anxiety is ineffective for mainstream EV adoption due to limited raw material resource supply and high cost.
Fast-charging batteries enable the downsizing of EV batteries for both affordability and sustainability. However, fast charging of dense batteries remains a challenge.
The press release says that by 2035, the largest auto market in the United States, California, will effectively retire internal combustion engines. More EVs must be consumed. However, if new car sales shift to battery-electric vehicles, they must overcome two major drawbacks. Number one is they are too slow to recharge; second, they are too large to be efficient and affordable.
We hope that the new batteries from EC Power will actually perform as promised and cause a paradigm shift in the world of electric cars. The EV revolution is moving forward, and soon ICE vehicles will be replaced with fast-charging battery-enabled vehicles.
