After a few weeks of teasing, Chrysler has revealed the design changes to the 2011 Dodge Charger. We're getting a new front end that includes a sculpted aluminum hood, redesigned front fascia with a new look to the crosshair grille and new headlamps. Out back is a new tail lamp setup that stretches across the rear and uses 164 light-emitting diodes.Wed, 08 Jun 2011 00:00:00 -0700
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology say a new battery design for electric vehicles could be a lightweight and inexpensive alternative. The goal for the team's three-year project, launched in September 2010, is to have a functioning prototype ready to be engineered as a replacement for existing electric-car batteries. At this point in the project, the prototype uses a “semi-solid flow” to separate the two functions of a battery--storing energy and discharging it when needed--into separate physical structures.Sat, 01 Feb 2014 00:00:00 -0800
