Ford is definitely late compared to toyota and nissan who are already launched the elctric vehicles. But they are definitely trying to do something innovative with respect to the batteries and the charging techniques. With all the major automotive manufacturing concentrating on electric vehicles we will see a competetive battery technologies also.

This will result in a rash of people complaining about batteries going bad... Because guess what... They go bad faster than modern engines go bad...

Interesting that Ford close to use a liquid heating / cooling system for the battery ("PC Magazine" report from the Consumer Electronics Show) to allow a faster charging cycle than competitors. Such considerations can help make all electric cars more viable. It sounds like the car, due later this year, will have a number of interesting features.

What will be environmental effect of emplying so many batteries? How will they get so much amount of raw material and how will they dispose of the old one? Is Ford also doing research to solve this problem?

This is really great news to know that Ford and other car makers are committed to building an infrastructure for electric vehicles. Lets all hope that the end user will eventually give up petrol/deisel vehicles and embrace the electric vehicles.
