While a future with electric cars on the roads seems quite certain now, the charging infrastructure being put in place is mostly of the slow variety. For those in a hurry, though, help may be on the way. The Deflt University of Technology in Holland seems to be spawning another group intent on bringing fast-charging to the masses. They've produced a short video for the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering illustrating a system that keeps it simple and eliminates some potential problems like equipment vandalism and handling high-voltage lines. With the "Awesome Mobility" system, as it's being called, you don't even have to get out of your car! Sweet!
The group hasn't just made a video. We are told that this project also includes a business plan to help make the concept a reality. They are currently working furiously on the Awesome Mobility website as we speak and we hope to follow their progress there. In the meantime, hit the jump for some fast-charging video and let us know what you think.
