Putting aside the challenges of lithium air, it is good to see that the technical problems surrounding it are being taken heads on now. Notwithstanding all the challenges, lithium air batteries hold great promises for the future especially for electric vehicles. I wish them luck however long may be the road ahead.
Some cars are more reliable than others, but even the vehicles at the bottom of this year’s Consumer Reports reliability survey are vastly better than those of 20 years ago in the key areas of powertrain and hardware, experts said this week.
