Japanese automotive giant Honda has promised a new generation of electric cars, whose battery can be fully charged for 15 minutes – as long as you are ready to wait until 2022 for that pleasure. The goal for 2022 is for a Honda EV to go 150 miles on a 15-minute charge.

To achieve its goals, the manufacturer will offer new batteries that will rely on fast-paced technologies in development. Japan will release the first 350 kilowatt-hour chargers in 2020. At present, the most powerful such systems operate at a capacity of 150 kilowatts.

Honda will join forces with other companies to release mass-produced batteries. That’s because even by 2035 the EV market is expected to be no more than five percent of all car sales.

While this is a noble goal that could be great for the EV world (when comes true), it remains to be seen how far along established electric competitors like Nissan and Tesla will be in five years.

Before presenting the new fast-charging cars, the company plans to launch standard models with fully electric systems in Europe and Japan. They will be ready by 2019.
