Two of the reasons why people do not buy electric cars are 1) The limited range before a battery recharge is required; and 2) The time it takes to recharge the battery when required. Who wants to break a long journey for an hour or even 30 minutes while waiting for a recharge?
But the Government has just announced £91 million of funding for low carbon auto tech including hydrogen engines and ultra-fast charging batteries. Electric vehicle (EV) batteries with a range similar to internal combustion engines and which can charge in as little as 12 minutes are among projects awarded £91 million of government and industry funding.
Let us hope these projects come to fruition successfully before all new internal combustion engine cars are banned.
