Electric cars in a matter of five years will change the way we understand the automotive industry. However, and although its batteries are experiencing an increase in considerable autonomy, continue to provoke the consumer stress when they have to face a long journey. That is why manufacturers are joining so creating networks of super Chargers in which to load their cars when customers travel long.
The first large Alliance at European level is which will carry out Ford Motor Company, BMW Group, Daimler AG (Mercedes-Benz) and the group Volkswagen AG. According to an official statement released by Ford four manufacturers intend to establish electric vehicle charging stations along the main roads in Europe. This initiative their electric vehicles would be more accessible to customers and therefore to reach a greater number of homes.
The main objective that have been marked is to build as soon as possible a number of charging stations for electric cars can perform long-range trips without having to make stops of excessive length. In the communiqué is collected that the network would have a power level of up to 350 KWh being more potent that there are today working. Thus the burden of these electric cars would be much more quickly than they can be today.
The works would be planned for the year 2017 and about 400 points of recharge along Europe’s main roads have been established in the plan. All this should be running to the year 2020 according to estimates made by the manufacturers. In addition, this network of super Chargers would result in a major breakthrough and is that connectors to charge cars of the four manufacturers involved they would be the same, creating the first standard and much cheaper costs of manufacture.
According to Harald Krüger, CEO of BMW Group, “joint project is another milestone, which clearly demonstrates that competitors are combining forces to ramp up electric mobility”
We hope that many more brands to join the initiative and mobility is finally reached without compromising consumer Pocket exceedingly.
