Their focus convinces us to strongly believe EVs (Electric vehicles) will be the Model T of the 21st Century. The Model T replaced the horse-and-buggy very fast with its obvious advantages on speed, practicality, affordability, etc. A similar phenomenon is beginning to take place in a few countries around the world, where the percentage of new vehicles purchased with a plug are moving up.

Electric vehicles (EVs) produce less emission, have higher efficiency and generate less noise. However, driving range of electric vehicles is limited. Together with an electrified highway lane, a wireless system which recharges battery modules and a concept that energizes vehicles through solar panels and wind turbines installed along the way could contribute to an absolute zero pollution transportation system independent from the main grid.

There are various limitations to electric vehicles (EVs) deployment such as long battery charging time, short driving range, vehicle costs, charging infrastructure etc. Could affordable concept electric vehicles with unlimited range of operation such as Concept Two, an electric mini automobile capable of carrying five passengers comfortably in the same size of any micro two-seater on the road reduce these barriers?

Two of the biggest challenges in implementing electric vehicles over a wide area are the affordability of the vehicle itself and the missing infrastructure leaving people with some kind of “range anxiety” to strand somewhere. There are several concepts developed to overcome these barriers and provide a clean sustainable transportation system.

Battery swapping could very well be the answer to the major factor preventing the electric vehicle to reach the mainstream: “range anxiety” - followed by the high price and a lack of recharging infrastructure. With battery swapping networks vehicle’s retail prices could drop as fewer kilowatt-hours (kWh) would have to be carried around.
