Engineering Solution To The Electric Car Battery Problem

Electric cars have to carry large, heavy, expensive environmentally destructive batteries which run out of electricity quickly, take a long time to recharge, and have a short lifespan.

I propose the following engineering solution. Drive a cheap, gasoline or diesel powered car.

    The energy density of a battery just flat out cannot compete with gasoline.

    Diesel 10,942 Wh/l
    Gasoline 9,700 Wh/l
    LiFePO4 970 Wh/l
    Secondary Lithium-Ion 300 Wh/l
    Nickel Metal Hydride 100 Wh/l

    We could always put some electric carrying wires above our streets and some bars reaching up to the wires from our vehicules (cars, lorrys and buses) and then we wouldn’t need to carry the batteries. 😉

    And nobody talks about the greatest polluters of a car. Your tires . Thanks to the heavy batteries you destroy them even faster.If you go on bike you know that. Just look in the mirror after a long ride on a busy road.

    I propose a turbo charged, common rail Diesel, powered car

    I wonder how much energy an electric car uses in winter, when it’s -10C or worse and you have to drive 50km or 100km to work and want to be a little warm in your own car, and what is does to the radius. You cannot get any heat from the engine, so it has to come from the battery.
    Do they test that too?

    Sorry Steve, Henry Ford beat you too it, even old Tom Edison agreed.

    The problem with the electric cars of today is not the batteries, its the engines that the batteries feed, so much emphasis put on the batteries and non on the motors. the battery is perfect and delivers according to design.the real culprit is the current or power being drawn from it,its beyond the working of a normal battery.we need to work on low current high torque motors to solve this so called ” battery Problem”.
