Latest Trends in Electric Vehicles – Electric Buses and Trucks
Fast charging technology in the E-mobility sector has seen some notable improvements. Currently, two-thirds of U.S. trucks travel 20,000 miles or less each year – an average of 80 miles per day if someone drives 5 days per week and 50 weeks per year. The mileage requirement for trucks is comfortably within the operating range of battery-electric vehicles with single charge every day.

Some electric buses use capacitors to store their energy rather than batteries. The ultracapacitors can only store about 5 % of the energy than a lithium-ion battery can hold which limits the bus to a couple of miles per charge. But the capacitor charges much faster than the Li-ion Batteries. New solutions are being suggested for the areas where fast charging stations are not available, such as mobile charging solutions with 192 kWh (Kilowatt-Hour) of liquid cooler battery storage that can deliver DC fast charging of up to 80kw.
