Three aspirations for long distance EVs

Three aspirations for long distance EVs

Sep 21, 2017 Worldwide
All the publicity currently goes to the race to make regular and premium cars have longer range. This is because most people want only one car so it must be capable of the long distance trip however rare. That must be achieved despite the inadequacy of charging points in number, speed and compatibility of interface and payment means.
