Yes, I'll take a 1,000 mile range solid state battery please. But, as they say, turning new tech into reality is rarely straightforward. I'll pay attention when it's for sale at a reasonable price.
Promising, but like Mycroft says, it rarely goes as planned. By 2017 (the midpoint of their projections) I'd imagine Tesla's packs might be doing 500ish and be cheaper than they are now (not to mention tested and proven). I hope to see it happen though, along with all the other promising chemistries we've been hearing about.
It would be really nice, but don't expect a 45 min quickcharge ! That would require some serious power!
A battery of 188kWh... still a 2h+ charge on Tesla's 90kW charger
No mentions of battery lifetime.
one problem with all solid could be cracking due to driving conditions (bumps in the road...)
My point is that I hear people asking about a X mile range per battery and ALSO expect it to QC withing 30 minutes. EV's are already very efficient. The only way we can get them to go further is by adding more battery capacity, which will also add more charge time.
The point of my post was that with a double-sized battery your "QC" will still take 2 hours.
Sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from a rigged demonstration.
