‘s vision for the future Drive
Toyota’s Smart House uses solar panels and Batteries charged for all electricity, and the system can also power any and electric cars belonging to the occupants.
Solar panels Batteries charged this cars batteries
This is a very good and in depth article by Matt Campbell. Hence, this article is about Toyota,s new vision. So of a totally green Batteries charged car. Of course, the car (if you could call it that) is operated by twin electric motors.
Thus , connected up to a Lithium Ion Battery Pack .Enabling , the car to do 45 k/hr. With a range of about 50 kilometers. This little car has special suspension .Of course, that allows it to sort of tilt, as you can see in the picture. Thus, is expected to be used in busy cities and towns. Consequently, the car will be known as the i-Road. Subsequently, will also be able to be plugged in and charged at any charging station. Of course, as well as at home.
The future of the Lithium-Ion battery is becoming more certain.Hence, regarding the batteries. Including when they have finished their end of life as a New Car Battery. Although the old replaced battery may not be suitable for a car.
Then, scientists are thinking of using disused batteries for solar energy Battery storage purposes.To be charged and used as storage. The world will be crying out for some solution to solar energy storage. Of course, the old Lithium-Ion batteries could well be the answer. To the disposal problem.
As a result of demand. Other power saving technologies are been invented in Universities . All over the world. Hence, to reduce emissions and greenhouse gases. Including the Start-Stop Batteries that are now getting more popular with car manufacturers.
