Conceptual electric buses designed by Andy Kim can be plugged to transfer battery power.
The world is shifting from petroleum-based vehicles to electric based but a substantial problem of the limited charging station is still a giant bolder between the complete acceptance of electric vehicle into our society. Government organizations are also promoting the manufacture of electric vehicles by providing subsidy on electric vehicle manufacturing plants and setting up the power stations.
Observing this problem with a different approach designer Andy Kim presented the world with a conceptual design of electric buses that can be plugged into each other for the purpose of transferring battery-power. Each bus comes with a modular design that allows them to ‘plug into each other’ with contact points on the front and back to help transfer power.
Now instead of waiting hours to recharge the vehicle after someone towed it to the nearest power station this technology can help you to recharge the bus easily, a network of buses can easily and efficiently deliver and distribute power among each other while operating on their routes. Besides, when the buses find themselves at the depot after a long day, they can form a chain and connect to a single power source to effectively distribute battery power to each vehicle simultaneously!
