Volvo gives EVs a new battery skin that is made with nanotechnology.

With the help of several independent research teams, Volvo is developing a new way of energy storage for electric cars that eliminates the extra weight of mega-sized car battery packs and super capacitor systems. Replacing the batteries of traditional electric cars, the new panels will be molded to fit the exterior shell of the car, and sandwiched between an advanced nanomaterial that is made of reinforced carbon fibers and a polymer resin.

These new panels are said to be extremely durable, because it is protected by layers of carbon fiber. Not only that, the panels will charge more quickly than the batteries in today's cars.
