Toshiba announced this week, breakthrough electric vehicle battery technology that will enable a compact car to travel 320 km (190 miles) on a six minute recharge. Available in 2019.
Toshiba SCiB batteries are currently in Honda Fit EV and Mitsubishi MiEV cars.
I was in a Ford car dealership this week and told them this. Their response was "this is what we have been waiting for!"
