Honda says electric cars will charge in 15 minutes by 2022

The big one is range anxiety that leads potential EV buyers to worry about not having enough juice to do what they need to do on any given day. Another issue is how long it takes most EV batteries to fully charge. As per a report from Nikkei Asian Review, Honda has its own leap forward in charging on the horizon, adding that it'll carve charging time to 15 minutes by 2022.

To name a few companies declaring advancements in charging is Fisker, which says its Emotion EV will be able to include 125 miles of range in just 9 minutes of charging.

Integral to this development is a new high-capacity battery which can sustain this rate of quick charging, sourced from Panasonic, among other component suppliers.

Honda is planning to release new electric vehicles before then, but they will feature current battery technology. Honda also plans to build its EVs with a lighter body and more efficient power control system to increase driving range.

Other motorists were able to pull Karla and her two young children out of the auto , but her five-year-old died on the scene. Twenty two-year-old Daniel Mejia was driving his vehicle in the #1 lane at a high rate of speed and hit the Jeep from behind.

Japan now has fast chargers providing up to 150kW of power, but the figure is likely to be raised to 350kW from 2020.

Before releasing the new faster-charging vehicles, Honda will release mass-market EVs in Europe and Japan in 2019 and 2020.

The automaker now sells its only all-electric vehicle, the Clarity Electric, a compliance auto, and it plans to bring a new retro-looking urban EV to market in 2019. The EV market certainly needs all the help it can get to catch on.
