Is Electric car a reality?
Nissan and Renault unveiled a prototype for an all-electric car in israel (may 11). Also Nissan declared thatwould mass-market a similar model in the U.S. and Japan by 20010.
Gm will complete its' gas-electric hybrid, called Chevrolet Volt, by 2012..
Are we really near to a major step in cars??
Some problems remain..
The cost of batteries is still high and it seems they aren't fit for long commutes. But this last one could be resolved by rethinking the "refueling" procedure..
Also we must think the electricity for charging where it comes from..nuclear? Coal? This could just move the problem..
But one country thought of a solution! Denmark, which is working with Nissan and Renault to market electric vehicles, plans to use its wind turbines to fuel its transportation revolution!!
Do you think this could actually work? Lets see what will happen ;)
