Better battery technology for electric vehicles -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

Electric vehicles wait for better battery technology -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

Why hasn't the sales of electric vehicles (EV) improved? The answers to the questions are still the same. Are we not enough? It's the battery, battery and battery of electric vehicles!

Automotive engineers certainly know this, and material scientists are no exception. Although consumers seem to admire the achievements of TSLA (Tesla Motors), they do not understand why its successful experience in electric vehicles can not be extended to mid-level and entry-level vehicles.

General Motors recently pointed at the lack of market demand. PlugInAmerica is due to the general lack of awareness of electric vehicles and the lack of availability. According to a report released by PlugInAmerica in April, some dealers are not too keen to invest more in plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs).

Both views are quite correct. The demand in the lower market is weak, and the availability and awareness of electric vehicles are also obviously insufficient.

The question is, why? The answer is still battery!

The average annual income of Ford Focus electric car owners is $199000, while the average annual income of gasoline Focus owners is $77000.

According to a recent survey conducted by TrueCar. com, people with higher incomes are more likely to buy electric cars. For example, the average household income of the owners of the Ford Focus electric car is about $199000 per year, while the average annual income of the owners of the gasoline Focus is $77000. Similarly, the average annual income of Fiat 500e electric car owners is about 145000 US dollars, while the average annual income of Fiat 500 gasoline owners is 73000 US dollars.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

John Krafcik, president of TrueCar, said that wealthy car buyers are better at bargaining, so they want a car with lower operating costs. This ignores the fact that why wealthy owners can afford the second or third car with less practicality. The car owners with more budget constraints are not. If they can afford the second car, it will become a powerful factor to promote the growth of the electric vehicle market.

In the next few years, the economic scale will promote the development of electric vehicle technology. The price of battery will become cheaper; Car prices will fall, while car sales will start to grow. The overall penetration rate of battery-powered electric vehicles will increase, possibly to 5% or even 10%.

However, if you want to seek the explosive growth of sales so that we can shake off the era of gasoline, it depends on luck. The economic model is not so good. For this reason, we need the so-called Godbattery with a endurance of 300 miles, and the price is about US $100 per kilowatt-hour (100/kWh).

This is of course a difficult task. We all know this, because in the past 25 years, we have heard countless new battery chemical research and development, from sodium sulfur battery, nickel iron battery, nickel hydrogen battery to advanced lead acid battery, lithium battery, lithium air battery, lithium sulfur battery to aluminum air battery, and so on. Now we are still waiting. Obviously, this matter is much more difficult than it seems.

I began to write reports about electric cars in 1988. I had never heard of the Internet and there was no mobile phone. However, in the past 27 years, these technologies that are more popular with consumers have rapidly surpassed electric vehicle technology and been successfully developed one by one.

Perhaps we can attribute it to various factors such as availability, consumer awareness, conspiracy theory, and sales promotion. After all, there are some facts behind all these reasons. However, when we are debating these facts, the number of mobile phone users has grown to 7 billion, and the number of global Internet users has rapidly climbed to more than 6 billion units.

Today, electric vehicles are still waiting for better battery technology.
