Lithium Battery Improvements
Scientists at the Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) (Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg) have developed Li-ion batteries that have already demonstrated a very high cycle life of more than 10,000 full cycles with retention of more than 85% of original capacity. When I researched this technology it appears that Honda has already expressed interest and is funding research into mastering this technology. I would love to see something like this at the backbone of the Ford's Energi models. This paired with photovoltaic paint and a gasoline or diesel engine that only produced electrical energy (Free Piston Four Stroke Linear Engine with generator) I believe we would have an efficient car that would dominate the current market. I would love to see Ford just demonstrate to all of us that this type of technology is in their future models.
