"E-KIZUNA", what garbage!

Why is using electricity to power your car "kizuna" anyway?

How long does it take to "charge up"?

I want to buy a very small good EV for shopping in small town. Quick 1 minute charging is much better.

Pure electric vehicles will never catch on until we see these often, same with the internal combustion engine and gas stations.

When the latest EV technlogy becomes available EV's will have the batteries built into the whole body, which becomes the battery instead of the current ones which are heavy and expensive. The battery in the body charges itself while parked up, unless I suppose it's in an inside car park. The battery charges even while driving.

I think the future is dual service stations that sell both petrol and have charging stations.

It takes 15-30 minutes for quick charging.

I hope manufacturers to make 2 kinds of car batters. One is car can run 600 kilometers but charging for several hours. Another is can run 30 kilometers but charging for 1 minute and its price is very low. I don't go far anyway.

Electric cars-- so yesterday.

When will they start making the cars and machines of tomorrow that run on good vibrations?

Good point - but how does the battery charge whilst driving?

The next generation in automobile fuel that could save the planet is now available in a typical run-down town in Saitama.

Screw upgrading carriages for the Noda line man, drive eco-friendly cars!

Pointless as it takes electricity to power it. Electricity is not grown on trees. mimitchy-They are far from eco-friendly, just another product that will be future landfill.

All US cars were electric until Henry Ford introduced the Model T in 1908 which ran on gasoline.

I believe this is the future of cars, and trucks....I for one am glad to see it...When people stop burning fossil fuel's and start charging electric car's, boat's and home's and using solar energy, we will all breath alot easier...Even hydrogen electric cars would be the next future.... Also Henry Ford designed the "Model T" to run on hemp fuel, not gasoline...

In Japan, where will the electric come from? It'll be produced at.. nuclear? nope. uh.. a Coal burning power maybe? Not so green after all Mr Electric-car. How about we just refine some shipped in oil or convert to natural gas? Cheaper, easier and natural gas burns clean. Developing electric is great but it's no panacea.
