Electric cars could drive from London to Edinburgh on a single charge using a new battery technology being developed at Cambridge Univeristy, scientists have said.The lithium-air technology could be used to develop batteries that are a fifth of the cost and weight of current electric car batteries – enabling them to match the range of petrol and diesel cars.Although real-world usage remains “at least a decade away”, scientists say they have overcome a number of obstacles to develop a working laboratory prototype of the battery.
