Overview of Battery Technologies used for Automotive Applications

e-HikeLink's picture

Batteries of several technologies are employed in different automotive applications, helping vehicle manufacturers meet EU targets for reduced CO2 emissions from transport. Advanced lead-based batteries now provide start-stop functionality and other micro-hybrid features in a significant proportion of the new vehicles created in Europe, directly lowering their fuel consumption by 5-10%. The various grades of hybrid powertrain also require different battery combinations to provide a level of vehicle propulsion, while high-voltage lithium-ion and sodium-nickel chloride batteries have been employed to deliver zero emission driving in Europe’s first generation of electric vehicles.
This report provides a joint industry analysis of how different types of batteries are used in these automotive applications, with the intention to increase the level of information publicly available on the topic.
