“The communication between the stranded vehicle and the Angel Car is facilitated through Nation-E’s high-end Battery Management System. This system is capable to converse and examine the parameters and the verification permits of the car battery, and determine the quantity and intensity of energy that should be fast-charged into the stranded vehicle. This hyper intelligent unit is equipped with a touch screen that enables the controlled flow of energy,” Nation-E says in a statement.

“Even though the infrastructure for e-cars is only in its early development phase, governments have established targets for growth in an effort to introduce e-mobility as an alternative means of transportation in the upcoming decade,” the company added. Nation-E’s Angel Car concept therefore becomes the key solution to “range anxiety and makes driving e-cars realistic even without the huge deployments of new infrastructures.”

That may be true, but if the electric car is truly to be embraced by the public then a huge development of infrastructure is going to be needed. Since there’s not that many EV charging points outside of forward-thinking cities like San Francisco and New York, the car of choice for the environmentally-minded remains the Prius.
