Battery cell chemistry and design would be key to BEV lightweighting
Advanced chemistry including silicon anodes, solid-state battery and design advancement in structural battery show promise in making future EVs much lighter and efficient
As the automotive industry progresses toward electrification, the advancement of the lithium-ion (li-ion) battery will be the most important development that all stakeholders would be keen to follow. There are several challenges that li-ion battery faces today in terms of range, charging times, and safety. These challenges would need to be addressed before batteries can enable parity with the internal combustion engine vehicles of today.
