Are electric vehicles capable of long distance trips? Yes, but with major sacrifice: either recharge several times en route, with a trip which takes about twice the time of an ICE vehicle, or make a significant capital investment in a large battery and vehicle. Not surprisingly both options are a major hindrance to wide EV dissemination. Developing range extending services for Electric vehicles via energy modules is an attractive option. It resolves the above conundrum by providing peak range at a marginal cost which is commensurate to the marginal usage: peak range is required only 2% of the time! [1] [2]
