A new lithium-ion battery that uses semiconductor nanoparticles in the place of graphite means charging EVs on the go could soon be as fast as filling up with gasoline. For 60% of drivers, range anxiety remains one of the biggest barriers to the large-scale adoption of all-electric vehicles even though some models already exceed 300 miles on a single charge. The good news is that range anxiety is being addressed on two fronts: massive investment in battery research and development has led to ever-increasing power and charge, and extensive charging networks are rolling out across the U.S. and many other parts of the world. Tesla, for example, has already built a network of more than 20,000 Superchargers. China is reportedly installing EV stations at a rate of more than 1,000 per day.
