Electric cars with 1,000-mile range per charge possible by next year

Slowly but surely, electric vehicles may soon go 1,000 miles on a single charge, four times the range of present electric cars.

Ian Hobday, CEO of UK-based Liberty Electric Cars, said this could be a reality as early as next year.

“I can tell you that there will be a vehicle that will do Land’s End to John O’Groat’s on a single charge next year,” Hobday said.
Land’s End to John O’Groat’s refers to a trip from one end of the United Kingdom to the other.

Hobday told online motoring magazine Motortrades Insight a potentially record-breaking electric car could be released within this year.

Such a vehicle may have a range between 837 to 1,000 miles, and can potentially go from the UK “far into Europe without need for a recharge,” though the price or model has not been made public yet.

For its part, Liberty Electric Cars aims to double its workforce to 80 by end-2013.

“It shows you where the electric car technology is going,” Hobday said.
