ALL Electric Car - BEV Battery Electric Vehicle
An environment-conscious car buyer would search for a “green
car” that is efficient, with minimum to zero emission, lowest
consume per mileage, comfort, and enough power to arrive safely
at its this destination.
An all-electric or battery-powered car would be for this consumer,
an optimum fit. It will easily cover short or medium daily driving
distances allowing for energy to be restored overnight when
parked and hooked to an outlet designed for electrical car
“refueling”. Or for extend, lengthy routes, future fast pay-per-use
recharger outlets will be available along the way.
After analyzing basic and key element like the still high tag price
for the all-electric car and its investment payoff, this eco-friendly
consumer will have to spent considerable study relative to the car’
s autonomy and its own usage for short and long distances.
The very next inquiry is: how to predicate lifespan of the electric
To be able to precisely answer this question it would be required
to simulate in a short amount of time how a fresh designed and
built battery will behave during many years of operations
powering an electric car.
Before we get into that lets consider the electric car battery. In
an all-electric vehicle all power sources is engendered by a battery
bank or pack. Or, in broad terms, All-Electric Vehicle (EV) or the
BEV type (Battery Electric vehicle) are set in motion by chemical
energy stored in rechargeable battery banks. Instead of the well-
known combustion engines, a BEV is propelled by electric motors
and electronic controllers; there is no internal combustion engine,
fuel tank or even fuel cell.
First and foremost, the battery of a BEV is a far cry from the
common lead acid batteries largely used under the hood in
internal combustion engine cars. A step up from that battery is
the one used by hybrids or cars that are powered by both
gasoline and battery. Prius from Toyota, Civic from Honda share
the nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries technology. Due
material demand and increased costs, these nickel based
batteries, although more powerful than their lead acid cousins,
have not yet delivered a substantial long-term cost benefit
So this technology is not there yet and the quest continues for
materials and battery designs that would provide better
performances, improve efficiencies (energy delivered) and lifespan
of electric car battery. The next generation of electric vehicles
(BEV) is being built around lithium-ion battery. The adoption of
this type of battery has shaped the electronic industry as we
seen it today and it will is now emerging in the car industry. One
example of lithium future in the car industry is the Toyota model
Vitz CVT4, available only in Japan and the Volvo 3CC concept car,
an all-electric vehicle with 3,000 lithium ion cells and counting zero
Regardless if it is fuel or electricity, there is a good risk associated
to any type of energy storage. In such matter, the battery is no
Companies like Pegeuot A set of new Electric car batteries are
submitted to a chain of repetitive events simulating even harsher
conditions that a vehicle will experience throughout its life. In
other words, the battery is submitted to abusive operation and
environment tests to guarantee its performance while powering a
vehicle and safety of car occupants and people nearby. When
submitting a battery to voltage and high current and abusive
tests, the internal material generates gases and combination of
them can be explosive, literally. This is why a fully sealed concrete
room has to build around and an accurate early gases detection
system and other waning devices has t be place to anticipate non-
conformities as soon as possible to prevent misshapen.
The Battery Test Center of D2T in Trappes, France provides
exactly this, a safe place to experiment with materials, batteries,
The quest for materials and best designs continues thanks to this
kind of simulation of environment and operattion that provides
flawless scenario for scientists to research batteries with best
performance and for the longest run.
