The folks at IBM are working on a lithium-ion car battery that will allow a standard car to travel 500 miles on one charge; currently – they last about 100 miles. IBM started this project in 2009 and projects this could be the universal standard as soon as the year 2020. The car’s only leaves behind a trail of oxygen thus reducing carbon emissions in the world significantly. Innovation is what drives the world economy; the prosperity of Americans is firmly tied to it’s ability to innovate and adjust to changing circumstances. And IBM is doing just that.
IBM explains the Battery 500 project HERE:
Most people consider switching to electric vehicles to save money on gas and contribute to a healthier environment. But “range anxiety,” the fear of being stranded with no power, was cited by 64 percent of consumers as a main detractor to buying an electric vehicle.
