Extending Electric Vehicle Range Through Heat Management Solutions

Increased driving range. Every electric vehicle owner wants it. Every electric vehicle manufacturer strives to achieve it. Many factors impact electric vehicle (EV) range, which makes for a delicate balancing act for OEMs and suppliers. From vehicle aerodynamics, battery size and weight, to battery power drains from features consumers expect like infotainment systems, power windows, and automatic locks and seats, manufacturers are looking at every possible way to increase the drive range of EVs and plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEV).

Battery Packaging Can Stand to Lose Some Weight

With the growing understanding of how plastics and composites can help lighten engine components and systems, more OEMs are focusing on the battery packaging inside an electric vehicle's powertrain and how to minimize its size and weight. "Every pound deleted calculates into distance added per charge," said Calvin Nichols, transportation market segment manager at BASF. This challenge has long concerned automotive engineers, especially because a more powerful, often bigger and heavier, battery is needed to power cars for the distances that today's consumer's desire.

Navigating the E-Mobility Industry

While electric drivetrains are definitely here to stay, some OEMS are starting to emphasize the performance and driving experience of these electric vehicles above the fuel economy - an interesting takeaway from the SAE Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technologies symposium in La Jolla, California that I attended last week. It is important for us to go to events like this to hear the many different perspectives and opinions about where the market is trending. Since it is often hard to find one consistent message, I take bits and pieces of what I learn and share with my team to help drive business decisions.

It's Electrifying: Key Chemistries for Advancing E-mobility

Today begins the SAE Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Technologies symposium, where industry leaders come together to discuss products, trends and the future of e-mobility. "We expect to continue seeing significant growth in the use of lithium-ion batteries for a variety of vehicles ranging from micro-hybrids to full battery electric vehicles in the coming years as we approach the 2025 CAFE deadline," says Mike Scarparti, e-mobility industry manager.
