Evaluating New Technologies And Architecture Design Trends For The 30,000 Euro Mass Market B.E.V. Is It Possible To Scale Back Customer Expectations On Range?

To successfully market EVs and convince customers to purchase them, it was previously believed that the industry would need to offer a comparable range to that of a gasoline engine. If you can produce a vehicle with a range as close to 400 miles as possible, customers will not experience range anxiety. However, this is very expensive. Can range anxiety be alleviated by accelerating charging times? Or will customers' range expectations decrease? When considering how to construct the 30,000 Euro BEV, each of these factors is significant.

"It is essential to never lose sight of who your customers are. We will consider the end user and ask "Okay, what does the end user require?" Then, you consider economies of scale when determining how to deliver the product at the optimal price. And selecting the best technology. Currently, the industry needs greater clarity regarding which technology will be the best option by 2030.

Future battery technology may differ from today's.

11:30 Development for the Electric Future: Increasing Silicon Content in LIB-cells - Challenges and Opportunities

Range anxiety and long waiting times at charging stations are ubiquitous topics when talking about electric vehicles. The first generation of vehicles could not completely refute this. How can these two topics be combined in one cell generation and what does the future of lithium-ion technology hold in store? In this overview of the development, the latest trends and next generations of storage technologies, Dr Werlich will focus on increasing silicon content in Battery-cells.

Which necessary changes are needed in both cell design and cell production?

In the context of the development of lithium-ion battery cells, it is particularly important that the development of the electrochemistry and the production processes run in parallel. The production processes have a significant influence on cell performance, and care must be taken in the early phases of development to ensure that processes are scalable and do not become a bottleneck in the entire cell production. Small, flexible production systems that already map the processes that are used in a scaling are the perfect development environment.
