Our future electric cars - level 3, A12

06-04-2012 22:00

We have known about electric cars for a long time. However, many car companies didn’t want to switch to electric cars because it was better for them to make cars which use petrol. This situation has been changing over last few years and streets full of electric cars and clean air in the cities are hopefully our near future reality.

There has always been a problem with how far can an electric car go with its battery. Nobody wanted to stop in the middle of the road and wait for recharging the battery.

One of the leading companies in electric cars is Renault. Now they want to sell a car and a battery as two things, not one. So, it will be possible to change the battery. One Israeli company took this idea and they will build battery stations in Israel, Denmark and Australia this year. So you don’t have to wait for your battery to recharge. You will come to the station, change the battery in about 3 minutes and continue.

You can see a commercial for an electric car in the video. This is what the lady says. She speaks with a slight French accent.

“You already switched to electricity for many things. So why not for travelling? Renault Z.E., 100% electric, 0% emission.
