Diesel cars in New Zealand will soon be transformed into electric cars that derive their energy from the air, and also after designing a distinctive and smart battery that can travel a distance of a million kilometers.
A New Zealand expert predicted that all New Zealand cars would one day be converted to electric cars that derive their energy from the air.
The New Zealand Herald reported that Bruce Smith, head of the New Zealand Electricity Design and Innovation Committee, intended to say during a biofuel and electric vehicle conference.
And that in the New Zealand capital, Wellington, the number of electric cars may triple the country's ability to use wind energy, or technology to produce energy through compressed air.
Smith predicted that if 2.4 million cars out of the four million cars registered in New Zealand became electric, this would contribute to generating energy from the air estimated at three thousand megawatts, or about three times more than the existing air energy or currently in production.
The newspaper pointed out that electric cars are not popular in New Zealand and that about 70 percent of the country's electricity is produced from renewable sources such as air or solar energy.
Smith said that electric cars can be equipped with special electrical meters designed to charge the car's batteries whenever the electricity in the power grid is at its highest level.
On the other hand, a Chinese company that manufactures car batteries said that it is ready to manufacture a battery capable of driving the car for a distance of up to two million kilometers (1.2 million miles) and up to 16 years old.
Most car manufacturers have been providing guarantees for the life of their car batteries, ranging from 60,000 miles to 150,000 miles over three to eight years.
The contemporary company Imprex Technology Limited (Cattel) did not disclose the name of the customer (the automobile company) to whom the product will be supplied.
However, previous news had talked about developing the battery in cooperation with Tesla.
The announcement came during an interview with Bloomberg News, with the President of Cattel.
