This is great news about the Toyota’s Prius EV Hydrogen Batteries

This news is good news for the many motoring fans, who think that the future should be a mix of technologies in the World of cars. In the past twenty years alone we have seen many new developments in the battery World. Apart from modifying the ever present free flow lead acid batteries, we have seen the new battery types such as AGM and GEL batteries cropping up to serve as back up batteries for many industries such as computer back up systems and even for the early computers that we all used. All this new technology was introduced along with need for progress and the appetite from consumers and industry for better and faster electrical equipment.

This development has never stopped. Of late we have developed many new types of batteries, that were funded by Governments and large corporations to satisfy the need of the ever expanding electrical and engineering projects whether they were large or small. The next generation of batteries was to be known as the NiMH, Nickel metal hydride batteries, for use the ever expanding miniaturization of personnel computers. These were followed by the invention of the Lithium- Ion batteries, that were invented in the 1990’s for use on the Stealth aircraft in the USA and also used in the space program by NASA, the American space agency.

The latest surge in Toyota’s Prius EV development came when there was a need to save the Earth from greenhouse gases. The main culprit was pollution from fossil fuel driven cars, so the Governments of the World got together and agreed that emissions had to be reduced. This caused a frantic rush for the car makers to come up with an alternative fuel supply to gasoline products. The answer was to be the electric car. The first car makers came up with the Lithium-Ion batteries and are still developing today.

However because these cars will not travel far before the batteries need re-charging, scientists are trying to come up an alternative. One of the companies to do this is Toyota’s Prius EV from Japan. This new type of Toyota’s Prius EV battery is called the Hydrogen-cell battery and in my opinion will be the winner of this technology race in the future.

The car, the Toyota’s Prius EV is expected to be coming onto the market as early as 2015 and already gas stations are been prepared by adding Hydrogen pumps on their forecourts, yet another step forward.
