How large are the current batteries in electric cars?
Answer provided by
Great question! Currently, electric car batteries are pretty big.
An all-electric future is becoming more and more realistic, which means that battery technology is here to stay. Most electric cars today opt for the same battery technology. The batteries are made of individual cells packed into modules that make up a large battery.
The largest batteries measure up to a few meters long and weigh a couple of hundred kilos. That’s why they’re mainly found under the floor inside of the car. On average, these batteries can hold enough power to provide a range of up to 300 miles before recharging.
Two common types of electric car batteries
- Lithium-ion battery (typical in all-electric)
- Nickel-metal hydride (common in hybrids)
