Automotive batteries

Electrified vehicles represent a growing share of the automotive market, increasingly replacing internal combustion engine vehicles. This imposes great demands on energy storage technologies, currently dominated by lithium-ion batteries. Yet, despite tremendous progress in recent decades, lithium ion-powered vehicles still face huge challenges to meet the requirements needed to ease range anxiety and achieve mass market penetration.

This Insight offers a perspective on relevant practical issues for batteries in real automotive applications. It discusses state-of-the-art automobile battery materials and chemistry, production processes and their relationship to product performance, battery safety modelling and simulations, and the suitability of various energy technologies for different transportation markets.
