Research in Sweden is suggesting that the addition of carbon fibre body panels to our cars will take away the need to have battery packs.

If this can happen it will significantly reduce weight which plays a big part of the effeciency of electric vehicles. For example the Tesla Model S comes in at just over 2 tonne. Take away the large battery packs on the Tesla and replace them with the Carbon Fibre panels and the effeciency of the Model S could go up big-time.



Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have identified some carbon fibres have good electrochemical properties which could allow them to be used as a battery.

The 'BUT' with this potential approach to battery storage is the current cost of carbon-fibre.
