Ford Motor Co is working with scientists at Purdue University in Indiana on a patent-pending plan to slash the average time it takes to recharge all-electric vehicles at charging stations from an estimated 25 minutes to 5 minutes.
Axar.az reports "That's a game-changer," said longtime industry analyst John McElroy, host of Autoline After Hours podcast and webcast. "All of a sudden, it makes electrics far more viable for everyday use for people. It opens up the potential EV market."
The man leading the effort, a mechanical engineer, has developed cutting-edge technology used in jumbo jets and spaceships. Now he's applying that intelligence to all-electric cars and how to reduce the time it takes to recharge batteries, so people don't feel anxious about watching their vehicle run low.
This is a physics class that applies learnings to the real world.
