Not too long ago, there were two front-runners in the race for an alternate fuel source for vehicles: hydrogen and electricity.
During the last 30 years, lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries have become the dominant rechargeable battery technology, offering excellent power density and long service lives. Just look to every major auto manufacturer – in the last two years alone, most have started a major shift toward electric vehicles (EVs) powered by Li-ion battery technology and are phasing out cars and trucks with internal combustion engines.
In designing electric vehicles (EVs), efficiency is key.
When winter storms left hundreds of drivers stranded and stuck on I-95 in Virginia for hours, some people questioned what would have happened if the cars were electric vehicles (EV) given EV batteries' susceptibility to temperature extremes.
At the heart of every electric vehicle is its lithium-ion battery pack.
The heart of an electric vehicle (EV) is its battery pack, and the module cell connection system is infrastructure that connects the individual cells to the high voltage output of the pack.
In the typical household, Heating, Ventilation, and Air conditioning, (HVAC) associated costs are one of the biggest contributors to a monthly electric bill.
At first glance, it’s hard to tell the difference between an electric car and a vehicle with an internal combustion engine (ICE). Both look alike, and both take consumers from point A to B.
Ask any driver what’s the most important feature of their car or truck, and most will likely say the ability to safely get from point A to point B. That is, after all, the primary function of a vehicle.
Electric vehicles meet many different needs.
