“It won’t be a dream to charge an electric car for 10 minutes at minus 20 degrees and it will run 300 kilometers.”
Lin Cheng, deputy director of China National Engineering Lab for Electric Vehicles, says heaters and cooling systems to keep batteries in their power zone might soon be a thing of the past. Scientists are just four to five years away from a scientific breakthrough.
“What we need is a ‘halo’ car to underpin the high-performance character. I also envision an electric vehicle with the latest charging facilities to serve consumers’ desire worldwide.”
Andy Palmer, Nissan Motor’s chief planning officer, talks about his vision for Infiniti. He wants the brand to play a more important role not only in the U.S., but on the international market as well.
