One of the major problems with electric cars available today is its low operating range and long charging time. Danish electric car manufacturer ECOmove is aiming to make EVs a lucrative option even for long distance traveling. The QBEAK, as the car is being dubbed, is a project between ECOmove, Insero E-Mobility and Serenergy and could well have an operating range of about 500 miles.

While there is no dearth of proposals, the only viable option seems to be electric batteries. But batteries, as we all know, aren’t necessarily the most efficient when it comes to storing large amounts of energy.
