Volvo get idea to develop new technology for electric car, it’s How to make the body panels on electric car batteries can also be used as battery? This idea Volvo gets after has looking at in order to find a more convenient way to store batteries on future electric cars.
Volvo Swiss automaker is currently testing that possibility by taking part in a €3.5 million project by the European Union (EU) to develop the technology. Centered of this project on the Imperial College in London with nine companies and institutes from across Europe participating. Volvo is the only automaker in the group.
The way the technology would work is rather simple – conceptually, at least. It involves using a composite of carbon fibers and polymer resin that can store energy more efficiently than current batteries while at the same time being strong and flexible so that it can be molded right into the vehicle’s body paneling.
Per-Ivar Sellergren Volvo engineer said “Almost daily I read new ideas about how this technology could be used or further developed. The potential is enormous, who works at the Volvo Cars Materials Centre.
