The challenge that the article discusses is how electrochemists can ensure that these batteries contain more energy. Only when the batteries providing cars with propulsion power are able to contain enough energy will transportation be freed from dependence on petrol. The article outlines the various advancements that have been made by the electrochemists to develop batteries that can support reliable long-distance driving for fully electric cars. Garthwaite, Josie. The article reviews the history of range anxiety as well as some of the modern solutions that enthusiasts, governments, and companies are implementing to assuage consumer angst.
Motoring the Future: VW and Toyota Vying for Pole Position
One of the perils of electric car ownership is range anxiety, the feeling that a person driving an electric car will be stranded with a dead battery without a way to charge their car. Although most modern electric cars have much stronger batteries and reliable sensors for indicating low battery status, many consumers are still worried about this issue. Over level 2 and level 3 chargers were to be deployed by But what good are the chargers if no one knows where to find them? Enter PlugShare, a mobile application dedicated to helping electric car owners find public recharging stations.

Hasegawa, Yozo. Tony Kimm. Additionally, the lithium battery appears to be the best battery to use for electric cars because it provides almost twice the driving distance of a NiMH battery. Many companies, like Panasonic or Sanyo, that primarily focused on making batteries for appliances are now putting research and development into making rechargeable batteries for cars.
Kirsch, D. The Electric Vehicle and the Burden of History. Piscataway, N. III There is no such thing as an environmentally friendly technology: the scale of the automotive technology system is its most salient and potentially hazardous characteristic.
Technology, environment and public policy in perspective: Lessons from the history of the automobile. Technical expertise and public decisions proceedings. This paper details the history of the automobile and its environmental effects in the United States.
Kirsch discusses the negative environmental effects of gasoline powered automobiles that had become the norm in the twentieth century, replacing horse-drawn transportation. This argument has implications for understanding the possible effects of the electric car if it does one day become adopted as a mainstream form of transportation. Mom, Gijs. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins UP, Gijs Mom spends a large part of the book tracing the early development of the electric car. He discusses the early technological developments and how they fit into the culture of the time.

First Edition. Motoring the Future: VW and Toyota Vying for Pole Position deals with the challenges facing the global car industry today, analyzing Volkswagen and Toyota, with some surprising results.
The book provides insights into each car manufacturer's corporate culture, products, production, leadership and technologies, as well as somethoughts on the future of the car. These two opponents vying for pole position could hardly be more different: Toyota, with a focus on manufacturing excellence, is dominant in its home market, the USA and south-east Asia, whereas VW, with its strategy of product excellence, leads in western Europe, Brazil and China. Industrial dominance will be important to them in the future, with both companies needing to master the next steps in product and manufacturing excellence.
The race is by no means over, offering a deep insight into the challenges for carmakers moving away from fossilfueled combustion to alternative energy vehicles for the mass market. Major players are trying to answer the key question: How will the car of the future look? VW and Toyota now need to keep ambitious competitors at bay. Timing is everything: US manufacturers are focused on their own revival; Korean and Chinese players are progressing surprisingly fast. However, it looks like the battle for pole position will likely remain between Toyota and VW.
