|Materials for Automotive Applications VIII: Electric Vehicles
As the automotive industry is faced with new global emissions regulations ,
automakers are turning their attention to electrified powertrains.
Companies like Tesla and GM have already introduced electric vehicles in the market and consumer interest in EVs is at an all-time high. However, several challenges still remain with electric vehicle technologies such as driving range, recharging time, weight and cost. These factors will ultimately determine the future of electric vehicles. Advanced materials and
technologies hold the key to many of these challenges. In this newsletter,
as part of our series on automotive materials, we present recent
developments in advanced materials and technologies relating to electric
