New components for electromobility require novel manufacturing strategies According to expert estimates, by 2040 almost 45 percent of all passenger cars sold worldwide will have a battery or fuel cell drive system. This will result in a large number of new systems and components in production. This also poses a challenge to the supplier industry. Dr. Axel Luft Automobile manufacturers worldwide are working to reduce emissions. According to a 2022 study by the German industry association VDMA and FEV Consulting GmbH, almost 45 percent of a total of 128 million passenger cars sold worldwide will ..read more

Dr Sara Ridley The future of the electric vehicle (EV) industry is heavily dependent on the success of efforts to improve battery longevity and reliability. To become a truly sustainable alternative to internal combustion engine vehicles, EVs must also deliver on their environmental promise throughout the entire vehicle lifecycle While much of the focus around EV tends to be on battery recycling, EV battery repair technology will play a decisive role on this journey and represents a more environmentally friendly option. Recent advancements within this space have taken us closer to unlocking th ..read more

By Dr Nick Reed Why you don’t have a self-driving car (yet) The act of driving appears deceptively easy. With only four main actions – steer left, steer right, speed up, slow down – it seems that it should be almost trivial to develop electronic systems capable of managing these four operations. Google first revealed their work on self-driving cars over a decade ago and billions have subsequently been invested by vehicle manufacturers, technology companies, investors and governments in their development. So why are we still waiting for self-driving cars to make a global impact on the mobility ..read more

Chandana Patnaik In 2014, Toyota opened the doors to the hydrogen society by launching Toyota Mirai, the world’s first commercial FCEV (Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle). However, Mirai was not the first FCEV developed in the world. The credit of introducing the first FCEV to the world goes to General Motors, which developed Electrovan more than a half century ago in 1966. The GM Electrovan containing 2 giant storage tanks forhydrogen and oxygen, 32 fuel cell modules, electric motor, and a 550-feet piping throughout the rear of the vehicle weighted around 7,100 pounds. This system relied on rare me ..read more

Busting EV myths ~ Breaking down the biggest misconceptions surrounding EVs ~ Simone Bruckner Despite the expected shift towards electric and zero emission vehicles, there’s still a lot of controversy surrounding them. Are they really any cheaper to run? What’s their true environmental impact? In this article, we break down the biggest myths surrounding electric vehicles (EVs). With more than a quarter of a million new electric car registrations last year, uptake of EVs is definitely on the increase. More than one in five of us expect to be driving an EV within the next five-to-ten years. But ..read more

EU battery legislation does not go far enough Mike Hague-Morgan The EU Parliament’s first ever Directive focused on electric vehicle (EV) batteries misses a major opportunity to extract the maximum environmental benefit of end-of-life units. It is the view of Autocraft EV Solutions, part of the Autocraft Solutions Group, that the vast majority of EV batteries which are currently considered end-of-life are far from being so. The company further claims that a sector bias towards recycling risks ignoring or neglecting other avenues that could prove more impactful towards sustainability goals. Th ..read more
