Electric Cars May Soon Be Able To Charge As They Drive
June 23rd, 2017
One of the downsides about owning an electric car is that it takes significantly more time to charge your car, as opposed to the short time it takes to fill a gas car up with fuel. So now a company called Qualcomm Technologies has demonstrated an amazing new invention for electric cars that helps solve this problem. They have officially tested something called Halo DEVC, which is a system that's integrated in the road to charge an electric car as it drives.
The system is currently being evaluated for its feasibility and will have the official results by the end of this year. It seems like a really great idea and it's been proven to work so far. Having the road charge an electric car instead of going to a charging station sounds really convenient and will definitely save people a ton of time if this gets approved in the future.
This Sunday starting at 9am there’s all new tech from the shops. In Detroit Muscle, how do you get tons of power out of an already stout factory coyote motor? Supercharge it! Plus how to build a drivetrain to handle nearly 700 ponies to the wheels!
Then in PowerNation Katie’s featured ride is this 80’s IMSA GTP series inspired SuperLite Coupe. Owner Bill Phillips and painter Anthony Kutas will talk about building, painting and driving these cool kit cars. Bill received the chassis, suspension, glass and body and then he decided everything else. He opted for an LS-3 with a 6 Speed. Anthony from Charlotte Speed Shop took over the challenge of laying down the Ferrari Yellow paint. Plus it’s super comfortable to drive on the street or the track! It’s a full block of tech so make sure you tune in.
