Volkswagen’s new electric car batteries may be four times more powerful and smaller

The man in charge of power at Volkswagen has said that electric cars will go 50 percent further in 2016 than they do now, which the potential for much greater gains in the foreseeable future.

In an interview with Autocar magazine at the Geneva Motor Show, Volkswagen powertrain chief Dr Heinz-Jakob Neusser explained that Volkswagen was now committed to developing battery technology and the company expects its expertise to improve dramatically.

Should Neusser’s predictions unfold the to letter, we can expect the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf to have a range of 177 miles and the smaller city-oriented e-up! to manage an impressive 140 miles.

Neusser added that next-generation battery technology will allow for electric car ranges three times greater than current figures when it arrives in 2020, paving the way for true mass-market appeal.
