2020 is upon us, and a chance to predict what will happen in vehicle electrification over the coming decade. These are interesting times for electrified vehicles (EVs), as they enter a phase of mass production following years of disruption and uncertainty.
All major OEMs have battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in their current and future platforms as part of meeting fuel-efficiency fleet mandates. The most optimistic projections suggest initial EV cost parity with conventional vehicles starting as early as 2025 for short-range vehicles, yet in order for any of this to happen batteries have some hard issues to address. Below are seven battery-centered challenges the industry is currently discussing.
