Lithium Ion battery technology isn't foolproof by any means.
Today's EV batteries are without any doubt, the achilles heel for EV vehicles.
That weakness will be eliminated when Fuel Cell powered vehicles come on line.
Those interested in "green" vehicles would be wise to wait for that next gen technology.
By 2015, today's technology will be obsolete.

A chap I met the other day who owns a Volt told me about a trip he made from here (SW Ontario) to his winter home in Florida--with his Volt.
This is a round trip of about 2400 miles.
His comments were this...
"My Volt is a good "around town" car, and I love taking it to Florida.
His fuel economy was better than a normal economy car, and he was never worried about battery charging.
Volt may be an excellent commuter car, and it certainly is the right choice for travelling. I am the Mad Hater and I love these cars.

Question...

If Lithium Ion batteries (such as used by Volt) are so great, then why do they require sophisticated cooling systems and robust steel protection to keep them from catching fire when

The story about the chap who took his Volt to Florida is real.
His comments are real.
The reality is real about Volt being a an excellent commuter car, and even better for a 2400 mile trip.

Answer…

Lithium Ion batteries (such as used by all the EV’s) are so great, because they require sophisticated cooling systems and robust steel protection to keep the driver safe and the battery lasts for years and years.

Lithium Ion battery technology is foolproof.
Today's EV batteries are without any doubt, the best thing going for EV vehicles.
That strength will be even better when Fuel Cell powered vehicles come on line.
Those interested in "green" vehicles would be wise to continue driving a Volt or Prius ev.
By 2015, today's technology will be even better.
Even the Grandstander knows that.

2014 Chevy Volt MSRP, as little as 26,685.

Considering that the average Volt driver will drive 13,500 miles per year, 37 miles per day, very little gas will be used.
http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ohim/onh00/bar8.htm
Using a 30 mpg gas car and $3.50 per gallon as the price of gas for comparison, the average Volt owner will save $1,575 if no gas is used. Let's make that $1,400. Although $175 is a lot of gas usage for a Volt.
So, in 5 years, the price for that 2014 Volt will be down to $19,685.$16,885 after 7 years.
Giving the hater the benefit of the doubt, the battery will be dead in 7 1/2 years. By that time, the battery replacement will cost about $2,500 -$3,000, bringing the price to about $19,000.
That $18,000, 30 mpg car will cost $11,800 to operate in that same time span. This brings the cost of that car to $29,000.
That's $10,000 more than the Volt .... IF THE BATTERY FAILS ... which it won't.
There you go again, with your dopey financial analysis. Did you make it out of Junior High School before you became a pole climber?

Forgot something........
I should in fact express gratitude to Root--the Shreveport Chameleon.
All his latest juvenile Faux ISP nonsense has proved to everyone that I don't do that sort of thing.
So thanks for all your playacting Root.
It certainly lets me off the hook.

Curiously, the numbers he uses keep changing.
His methodology is akin to a sleazy ponzi scheme.
Speaking of sleazy, whaddya think of the Shreveport Chameleon's latest fiasco?
Personally, I think we're all being conned by only a couple of pro Volt shills.
Too many games being played here now.

Its been said the lithium ion batteries like the one in the Volt will last past the lifetime of the car and outlast the biggest of dogs. I think we should call the volt mans best friend.
