Volvo testing an electric car that only takes 1.5 for full range

The chief about the Chevy Volt, Leaf and other all-electric is the time it takes to charge batteries. Volvo aims to that.


The Volvo C30 electric will implement the new speed system.

Gripes over the of gas since Hurricane Sandy given way to worrying about any gas at all, or getting it without 5 hours. Could electric sales, which have in the last half-year, benefit?

But they’ve still got a way to go.

The Nissan electric car I tested earlier year failed to give me a and part of the reason I didn’t it was because a typical charge a day’s worth of driving 6 – 8 hours. During one outing I found myself with 12 miles showing and 15 actual to home, I found a building in a with an outdoor socket and in. 90 minutes later, I had an additional 9 showing on my meter, and was able to it home.

• Plugging into an ordinary 230 V household outlet gives a time of 8-10 hours, on the available current.

The user can ‘top up’ the pack with electricity one or times during the day. means that the total range is significantly extended, yet the same low operating cost to a car with a conventional power says Lennart Stegland. customers more usable each day means that cars become more as a commercial proposition, in both the and public sectors.”
