Electric car range will increase fourfold over the next 20 years. For many leaders that will mean way over 1000 miles. Short-range cars will be treated like ones with no aircon or sound system. Giveaway prices or no sales. Learn the ten reasons why long-range will increasingly be demanded and the four most promising technology approaches to achieve it. One is simplification eliminating hundreds of parts at a time. How? When? There are several answers.
The world solves its problems by eliminating infrastructure so long-range is far more important than introducing fast chargers. Understand why most of the rapid range increase over the coming ten years is not coming from the adoption of solid-state batteries though they are important thereafter. Part of the initial quick win is simply combining the different approaches of the range leaders today but there is also a rich roadmap of new options.
