xEV Battery Technology, Applications and Market


Increased government pressure for reduction in CO2 and pollutant emission, coupled with a significant improvement in the performance-to-cost ratio of automotive batteries, is accelerating the rate of xEV development across the globe. Second generation EV models from Tesla as well as major automakers have started to hit the market as automakers have a much more optimistic view of the marketability of battery powered EVs and are expanding their xEV development efforts.

This new situation has created significant opportunities for the xEV supply chain, but with those come notable risks. The carmakers’ and consumers’ expectations for lower pricing, longer driving range, and fast charge capability are all demanding and, of course, durability and safety cannot be sacrificed. We, at AABC, understand automotive battery requirements, including those for batteries with lower cost, higher energy density, wide operating temperature range, high power and ability to accept fast charge, and, of course, safety and durability. The opportunity is huge but so are the challenges — we have thus created a program that will help you follow the trends, the issues, and the directions adopted by key players.
