Electric car users have always been troubled by a range problem. Their batteries normally fail to take them safely to charging stations or their intended destinations.
Samsung SDI, seems to have come up with a long lasting solution. It has introduced a new battery at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
This next-generation battery is given a target to keep your car alive for up to 372 miles, which is beyond any doubt, a remarkable innovation.
Other companies too are running this race. Tesla introduced 100 kWh battery backup that was designed to give Model S P100D, one of the company’s electric vehicle, an approximate range of 315 miles on a single charge. The company plans to enhance the figure to 381 miles.
The amazing feature of this advancement is the charging time. The battery can give 310 miles range on just a charging time of 20 minutes. The drivers might release a sigh of relief now.
On the other hand, Tesla gives as low as 170 miles range on a bulky charge time of 30 minutes. However, their announced superchargers can be expected to bring a major change in their capacity.
It is reported that Samsung SDI has decided to market the new battery in 2021, which is supposedly an year of advanced electric self-driving cars, designed by various companies.
For example, lithium-ion battery cells, recently started by Gigafactory of Tesla. It aims to produce 35 gigawatt-hours per year of lithium-ion battery by next year.
