The Coolest Technology Found in Electric Cars

The Coolest Technology Found in Electric Cars

The automotive industry is in the midst of a revolution. Electric cars are slowly becoming more popular, and while the environmental impact seems to be the focus, the technology in these cars is like something out of a sci-fi movie. When you look at all of the cool technology that’s been added to electric cars over the last few years, it’s clear that this is only going to get more interesting. And just like other technological advances, some of these have applications that can be used in other industries. Here are eight examples of technology that has been developed for electric cars:

Battery Swap Businesses

One of the challenges with electric cars is that charging can take a long time. And some locations don’t have as many EV charging stations just yet. What if there was a way to swap batteries at a battery swap location instead of needing to wait hours for a charge? This is one of the technological advances available in China’s NIO. Each vehicle comes with the option to swap batteries.

This is a faster way to get a recharge and helps people who may or may not have a charging station at home. Plus, when you’re on the go, no one wants to wait 8 hours to get going again. Battery swapping has its limitations. Right now, it’s expensive and requires a lot of infrastructure to be installed across large areas. However, it could be worth considering as an alternative to high-speed charging for some people, especially those who travel frequently.

Enhanced Autopilot

Enhanced Autopilot is a semi-autonomous driving mode that allows you to take your hands off the wheel, but keep them ready in case you need them. The system uses cameras and radar to monitor traffic conditions around the car while driving on highways or city streets; if it detects an obstacle ahead, Enhanced Autopilot will automatically slow down before changing lanes or moving over into another lane entirely. And for those who aren’t great at parallel parking, it also enables self-parking once you reach your destination.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality (AR) is a powerful technology that overlays digital information on top of the real world. In electric cars, it can be used to show you the best route to your destination and how much charge is left in your battery. This technology isn’t available in American models yet, but it is in European electric cars.

Self-Driving Capabilities

Can you imagine getting picked up by a driverless car and brought to your destination? Self-driving capabilities are coming to electric cars, and the applications are endless. They can help elderly people maintain autonomy when they can’t drive anymore. It can reduce the risk of people with dementia getting lost or in an accident. Right now, consumer models only offer a partial auto drive option, but the future of this technology is looking bright.  

Tesla App

The Tesla app is a powerful tool for owners of electric vehicles. It can be used to remotely control your car, monitor its battery charge and temperature, unlock the doors, and honk the horn. You can also turn on the air conditioning before getting into your Tesla so that it’s nice and cool when you get inside.

Falcon Wing Doors

A Tesla Model X can help you relive your Back-to-The Future dreams with doors that open upward. It is one of the sleekest and most technologically advanced vehicles in existence. These doors can be opened at the push of a button and they’re also aerodynamic, helping improve efficiency as well as aesthetics. They also make it easier to get in and out of your car.

Over-the-Air Updates

Over-the-air updates are another cool technology found in electric cars. These software updates allow car manufacturers to provide new features or fix bugs without requiring you to take your vehicle into the shop. This means that you don’t have to worry about missing out on cool new features before you can schedule time in the shop, you can access them right away. You’ll need an internet connection to do it.

Automatic Emergency Braking

Have you ever caused an accident because you were distracted for just a second or two? Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is a technology that helps prevent accidents by using sensors to detect an impending collision. If the car senses that the driver has failed to brake in time, it will automatically apply the brakes. This system can be turned off if you want to drive without this feature.


As you can see, there are many cool technologies in electric cars. Some of them have been around for a while, but others are still being developed and tested. As time goes by, this technology will become more widely available.
