A comprehensive look at automaker EV activity, future plans and emerging battery technology
BEVs, Batteries and the Electrification Future takes an in-depth look at the future of the electric-vehicle market, how automaker EV plans are progressing, where battery technology is headed and how battery suppliers are positioning themselves for near-term growth.
The report includes:
There is near-unanimous agreement the automotive industry is nearing the dawn of the age of electrification, with most industry-watchers and insiders expecting some form of battery technology onboard the majority of new vehicles produced and sold in 2030.
What’s more difficult to discern is how big the market – currently dominated by hybrid-electric, plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles and, soon, 48V mild hybrids – will be for full-electric vehicles. That likely will hinge on how far government policy goes and how quickly improvements in technology will bring EV costs down and driving range up – two highly fluid factors.
This report takes an in-depth look at the market drivers for EVs, various demand forecasts from a wide range of sources and the aggressive plans by automakers around the world to fill their lineups over the next few years with full EVs.
Among the findings:
The report also ranks the automakers as to which are best positioned to exploit the expanding EV market and profiles key battery suppliers, detailing their market successes to date, current technology strategies and what may be next and the industry’s Li-ion-battery capacity-expansion plans.
BEVs, Batteries and the Electrification Future seeks to answer the question of how big and how fast the EV market will grow and whether the industry is equipped to meet demand – or is on a dangerous path toward investing too much, too soon into battery-electric vehicles.
