Batteries for Electric Vehicles

leave a comment »

There is only one type of battery that is proven to work well in electric vehicles. This is the ev95 battery used in the Toyota Rav4 ev, the electric Ford Ranger pickup, and the electric chevy s10. The amazing Rav4 gets over 100 miles on a charge, goes freeway speeds, and many now have over 100,000 miles on their battery packs. The chemistry of this battery is no secret, it is NiMH. Nickel Metal Hydride works. I believe part of the stimulus should be used to mass produce this battery, subsidize it if necessary, and get it out to people making electric vehicles.
