It's looking increasingly inevitable that electric vehicles (EVs for short) will be the cars of the future. More specifically, battery electric vehicles (or BEVs)—which are powered entirely by rechargeable chemical cells—are starting to become practical. Many major auto manufacturers have BEVs in development, and a few already have BEVs on the road today. The challenge in making BEVs a viable transportation solution is the battery. Batteries must be easy to recharge, able to hold enough charge to drive long distances, and more efficient than gasoline engines. Scientists and engineers around the world are tackling this battery challenge, and major progress is being made.
