Volkswagen To Triple Battery Capacity With Lithium-Air Technology?

Fossil fuels may not be the cleanest way of powering us between two points on a map, but there’s little doubt they offer convenience.
So far, scientists have struggled to find batteries for electric cars that match the huge amounts of energy stored in a gallon of gasoline or diesel. As a result we get big, heavy batteries with relatively short range.

Volkswagen thinks it may have found a way to triple that storage capacity though, with the latest generation of lithium-air battery technology.

The new chemistry could mean a battery of equivalent physical size to that used in thenew 2015 Volkswagen e-Golf–currently 24.2 kWh–could hold 80 kWh of energy, more like that of a top-end Tesla Model S.
