Japanese car manufacturers introduce handicapped-friendly driving design

In order to make it better for the disabled, Japanese automakers Mazda and Honda have created barrier-free driving designs.

Mazda's system mainly relies on hand operation. There is an inner ring on the inside of the steering wheel. After the driver presses down, the car will accelerate, and the left swing lever can be used for braking.

And Honda's system is an experience based on foot operation, no need to "hands". The driver can use pedals and buttons placed underground to control the direction, change gears, or turn on the turn signal. (NHK)

Today's topic: Do you usually use fast charging?

David Wragg, a senior engineer at the Center for Materials Science and Nanotechnology at the University of Oslo, the highest institution in Norway, recently stated that there are many responsible chemical components inside the battery of an electric car, which are very sensitive to the charging speed, and fast charging may cause problems.

Over time, all rechargeable batteries will degrade. However, when the battery is in a fast charging state, this negative impact is particularly strong.

At present, researchers all over the world are looking for new materials and methods, but for our consumers, before the new technology is successfully commercialized, we can combine the actual situation to appropriately reduce the number of fast charging.

I don’t know if you, as the owner of a pure electric car, do you "occasionally fast charge" or "frequently fast charge"?
