Comments Off on New Material Could Act as Both Battery and Body of EVs

A new nanoscale material developed by researchers at Imperial College London could eventually act as both the battery and body of electric cars.  The mix of carbon fiber and polymer resin can charge and release electricity like a battery and is hard as steel too. The advantages of the material are pretty exciting.  Lithium-ion batteries are heavy and generate electricity through chemical reactions, which eventually wear down the batteries.  The carbon-polymer material is lightweight and doesn’t require chemical reactions, meaning both a longer life and quicker charge. If used in the body of an EV, like the roof, door panels or trunk, in place of a lithium-ion battery, an EV could lose 990 pounds and travel faster and farther.  The more surface of the car the material covered, the more charge it could store
