Before you could make it back to the car, the afternoon rainstorm rolled in, and it started to downpour. Racing to your vehicle, you jump in, your raincoat is soaked through. After relishing the reprieve of being safe from dive-bombing raindrops, you start your car and turn up the heat.
In this blog, we will take a look at how to predict battery lifetime and performance.
Electric vehicles continue to gain popularity as automakers reduce barriers to purchasing. Manufacturers are seeking solutions to increase range, offer lower price points, and expand the availability of charging infrastructures. These barriers are just some of the reasons consumers are slow to adopt and why OEMs are getting more serious about predicting energy savings.
The automotive industry is on the fast track to improving e-mobility—the development of electric-powered drivetrains is predicted to shift vehicle design away from the use of fossil fuels and carbon gas emissions.
For prospective electric vehicle (EV) buyers, comfort is more than just the temperature of the cabin—it's peace of mind. Many would-be customers are "cooled" from actually purchasing an EV due to range anxiety—the concern that the battery will run out of power before they reach their destination. Range anxiety and cost are cited as the two most significant barriers to purchasing.
