I've always heard when designing a battery, compromises have to be made. You cant have light weight if you want large capacity, cant have fast charging if you want longevity, etc... But Im wondering if automakers and consumers are too focused on range. Its always the first question people ask about my car. When I ask about the range on their gas car, they often have no idea and never even considered it during the purchase. In fact, most magazine and YouTube reviews on gas cars dont even mention the word range, because it really doesn't matter. Ive never heard of a motorcycle rider with range anxiety, despite the small fuel tanks. My Dad recently calculated that his old HD Sportster that hes had for 20 years only gets about 120 miles of range. Its never bothered him. Is it possible to design a battery that compromises capacity and instead focuses on highest charge rate possible? I would gladly take a super light weight, lower cost model S with only 100 miles of range if that meant I could charge in just 3 minutes with 120,000 locations to choose from. And when will 350kW charging make it to the low cost EV's? If I were Nissan, I would have kept the 24kWh battery but liquid cool the crap out of it and support 350kW charging rate. This would keep the cost of the car down, weight low and efficiency high. Then I would build out a massive 350kW DCFC network along highway long distance travel routes and watch the cars fly off the shelves. This seems like a good recipe. But am I missing the reason why this hasn't happened yet?
