Fully Electric Vehicles

I think the main bottleneck for electric vehicles is the charging time.

Inventors na wajuaji kazi kwenyu sasa. If you can invent a charger that can do the job in less than five minutes you will be the next birrionea.

Companies have already solved the range problem with some Teslas poised to do 500 miles on a single charge. If that customer could recharge his vehicle in less than 5 minutes, Exxon, Total and other oil drillers would feel the thunder.

Until they solve that charging time problem, hybrids will always have the upper hand.

Top Gear (when Clarkson, Richard and Captain Slow were still in it) tried to fix this by putting a generator in the car, I think this would work for now. You charge your car, normally then when the batteries are low, the generator kicks in and recharges on the move, this means you’ll still depend on fuel but it removes the need to stop. Guess it’s still a hybrid but it’s more efficient

Battery swap solves the problem

If that can be done in a minute and good quality assurance kama gas cylinders, that would be a great solution.

:D:D:D:D:D…I see you never studied chemistry or physics past Form 2.
Charging a battery quickly will cause overheating and a lot of wasted energy from electric energy to heat energy.
Charging a battery quickly over time will cause the formation of dendrites which will damage the cathode and eventually cause a short circuit and fire which will burn down to your car
Car manufacturer s weigh a variety of variables like common type of charging ports, longevity of battery , safety, balancing both use of ac and DC charging ports ,cost of battery to consumer ,ease of disposal of used up battery among other things.

imagine unaenda kwa station unapata tano zimepanga line na battery ziko below 20%

The solution to this is coming when the bateries utilize solid state technology which is not far off.

You charge overnight. Next query

Those batteries weigh how much ndio huswap

But with a range of 500 miles I’d say we are heading there. If we had many charging stations, you’d leave Mombasa, charge for 1 hour at Mtito as you have your break and snack and get to Busia. That’s mighty.

In most cases, the 500 miles range is more than enough for every day use. Most vehicle owners will hardly ever clock 300 miles in a day without a break.

  1. You can charge your EV using a level 3 charger for 5 minutes and add 80 kilometers of range to the battery.

  2. If you charge your EV for 15 minutes using DC fast charger, you can add a range of up to 320 kilometers.

  3. There is existing technology that can charge your EV wirelessly while you’re driving on the road. But it’s expensive to install since magnets have to be installed under the tarmac.

  4. In the next 10 years, we will have EVs that will travel 1600 km on a single charge.

High IQ Xi already anafanya swapping in 5 minutes and the next generation swapping stations zitakua in under 3vminutes.

The problem is you cannot wait u

Problem is at what discharge level do you do the swapping.

Battery swapping is unlikely to take off because every EV brand uses different battery design. Tesla tried battery swapping in 2013, but it decided to go with superchargers.

Wireless EV charging on the road while driving is the future. You don’t even need to stop and refuel.

EV cars are a waste of time,gari ni turbo petrol or diesel technology,it’s cheaper ,more reliable,easier to maintain and replace,simpler mechanics involved and not harmful to the environment.

I need an app that can slap someone through the internet.
I will be using it on people who use miles instead of kilometers.
Thanks in advance.

Angalia future sasa, as an entrepreneur naona mtu akiwa tu dealer wa hizo battery in Kenya anaweza omoka. Analeta stock anaanza kuji market mos mos akijenga jina in five years time zitakuwa zimejaa, anapata Doo unakafunga mapema kabla Kila mtu aingilie…

:smiley: walisusia daro ya physics, walifanya cre na agriculture.

Totally agree, miles chieth. Watumie SI units

Do you know that Kenya used to use miles ( feet, inches)until the 1980s. Meters and kilometers are German things. Miles, feet, inches, yards are more practical in real life. If I tell someone walk 200 feet to your house, ni easy kupima with foot steps. If I say 125m, wheres the ruler. SI Should be left to laboratories. In fact if you hire laborers in shags, they charge you by the foot kulima.
