Fisker's first gen of EVs to use Li-ion batteries, graphene-based ones still under development

Jun 13, 2017

Henrik Fisker, initiator of a project to start an electric car company relying on a long-range battery that uses graphene, recently stated that the company's upcoming electric luxury sedan will use lithium-ion batteries to power the car rather than the graphene battery technology currently under development for future models.

EMotion is slated to officially debut on August 17, 2017 with a tentative release in 2019. Pricing starts at $129,900, placing it in the same range as Tesla Model S. It will be interesting to see at what point, if at all, graphene-based batteries will be used in these cars.

Jun 01, 2017

Graphene 3D Labs logoAzTrong logoGraphene 3D Lab and AzTrong have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which outlines the terms of the agreement to be executed in the near future. This collaboration will aim to achieve cost effective production of performance-improving graphene-based products with focus on energy storage, construction, automotive and defense sectors.

Subject to the final agreement, Graphene 3D Lab will continue to develop formulations for graphene-related products while conducting tests and quality control measurements. G3L will also contribute its extensive knowledge in marketing for the graphene related products, while AzT will perform the large-scale manufacturing of the products. The products will be distributed by both companies including the e-commerce web stores, Graphene Supermarket, BlackMagic3D and G6-Epoxy, operated by Graphene 3D.

Graphene assists in creating lighter car parts

Apr 28, 2017

Researchers at The University of Alabama used graphene to fabricate a lighter car hood, as part of an attempt to reduce the weight of a Chevrolet Camaro. The new hood is made of a mixture of graphene and carbon fiber, as opposed to the original hood which is made of aluminum.

The hood is half the weight of the original hood, a crucial adjustment as a larger team of students work to turn the Camaro into a plug-in hybrid as part of a national contest called EcoCAR 3.
