Europe: Bombardier offers charge on the go e-mobility solution

PRAKASH JHA AUGSBURG (GERMANY) DO you care for the environment and want to wear your green credentials on the sleeve? Do you want to kick your oiladdiction, but remain stuck to the gasoline- powered vehicle because you do not have a choice? The automobile industry does believe that the future is more likely to lie in hybrid gasoline-electric cars and not the all-electric cars, which still face issues like how far they can travel on one charge and how long they take to recharge.

It’s true that the battery technology is improving in terms of storage capacity and lowering the overall weight, but it is yet to reach a stage where you can dump your gasoline-driven car.
So it’s a bind. While companies do not rule out a future for electric cars, they are yet to come out with a price and quality relevant vehicle to entice the discerning customers.
And in such a scenario, Bombardier, a global leader in rail technology, has forcefully come out with a technology, which is simple (in scientific terms) but promises to reduce environmental degradation by redefining transportation and revolutionising electric mobility across the globe.
Applied to light rail vehicles and cars, the system can save up to 30 percent of energy, thus reducing cost of electricity generation as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
According to the industry research body IDTexEx, the outlook for the electric vehicle market are extremely promising. The market for full electric buses and taxis is expected to grow from $6.24 billion in 2011 to $54.1 billion in 2021, a rise of 8.7 times in the next 10 years. Of that, the electric bus market is set to account for 235,000 buses over this 10-year period.
