Subaru doubles the battery on its electric car concept

November 2, Bucking the industry trend Hydrogen fuel cells. has released a vastly improved cut at a plug-in a battery-electric commuter The 65-kilowatt, 5-seater G4e’s new energy-density lithium-ion batteries it a 200km range from a (more than double the R1e’s range) and using a it can be topped up to 80% in only 15 minutes.

The new Subaru’s stats make it an viable commuter, while the exciting potential this sector will offer.

40 units of Subaru’s older EV R1e vehicle already out and being by TEPCO’s regional sales and local government officials, has announced the arrival of an updated version with more twice the range thanks to in lithium-ion battery technology.

The G4e (which apparently stands for 4 Earth”) has a 65kw maintenance-free motor. The aerodynamically-efficient exterior to get the most from the battery which is located under the of the vehicle to keep a low, center of gravity.

Range and times are the current bugbears of battery-electric vehicles, and Subaru has a strong step forward in area. Using a new high-capacity battery material, they are to load two to three times lithium ions onto the battery terminal, resulting in an density about double was possible on the previous model.

A normal full charge nothing more than a point and takes around 8 to reach full capacity, will deliver around of normal driving. Subaru has developed a quick-charger that allow the battery to be brought up to 80% in around 15 minutes.

Either way, energy per is a lot cheaper than gasoline – as low as a of the price if using off-peak rates.

With snappy that stick it straight in the of the compact car segment, the G4e doesn’t the outrageous looks of many cars – this is encouraging, as it the company might be looking at a production version not too far down the And as battery technology seems to be at a rate of knots, and these already look more viable for the majority of commuters, we how long until something it does hit the showroom of a

major manufacturer.
