Charge time for an electric car dropped to just 10 minutes
In the race to make electric cars a viable alternative to internal combustion engines, Nissan announced that it had developed technology to charge a car in 10 minutes.
The time it takes to charge a car is seen as a major hurdle to widespread acceptance of electric cars. With the current technology, it can take several hours to recharge an electric car.
Kansai University in Japan is credited with inventing the technology.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the technology is a decade away from commercial production.
