Head of Volkswagen advanced technology Center: “our batteries prolong the life of the car»

Frank bloom explains in an interview how batteries change a car, what drivers need to know about charging their electric cars, and what advances can be expected in the next generations of battery technology.

Many people face uncertainty when they buy an electric car. Can they be sure the batteries will work?
Yes, certainly. For our new electric models we have created batteries at affordable prices, which have enough capacity to store energy to provide a power reserve on a single charge up to 550 km. Previously, battery modules were distributed in different places of the car, but now the battery is compactly located between the axles in the bottom of the body. This means that we have a Central point of energy distribution. This is one of the great advantages of our new MEB electric platform. Continue reading

By the mid-2020s, the prices for electric buses will be equal to the ice analogues

Analytical report Bloomberg NEF Electric Vehicle Outlook 2019 indicated that the sale of ice cars in 2018 reached its peak and then the world will move faster to electric vehicles.

It is particularly worth noting that in the forefront of the electric car revolution are not cars, and a modest city bus.

Bloomberg analysts point out that by 2040, almost 70% of buses in the world will be electric, for the rest of the transport, this figure is about 60%. And since the electric bus is the main enemy of oil, the transport evolution depends primarily on it. Continue reading

Tesla Model S and X were created a long time ago, but they continue to be the standard of electric vehicles

“There will be no updates to Model X or Model S, only a number of minor current changes” — this short statement by Elon Musk caused a storm of gloomy emotions among Internet users.

“It’s like planes,” said Rebecca Lindland (Rebecca Lindland) from rebeccadrives.com, Model S and Model X were created a long time ago, but they continue to be the standard of electric vehicles. Lindland believes that the car is a commodity, not a subject of self-expression, so over time customers will notice increasingly long gaps between model upgrades, especially when it comes to self-driving car parks owned by corporations rather than individuals, so it is likely that cars will no longer be fashion.
