xEV Battery Technology, Application, and Market

30-31 January 2019

Vehicle electrification is here and market expansion has started. Automakers are scrambling to develop the vehicles that will not only meet the upcoming stringent emission regulations, but also attract customers and provide viable financial return. Developers are spreading their bets on multiple architectures, including mild and strong hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and battery-powered electric vehicles. At the core of cost and performance is the battery. Consequently, battery developers are being challenged to enhance performance, reduce pricing, and help automakers improve the vehicles’ value propositions. In this symposium, i) industry analysts will discuss vehicle- and battery-market trends, ii) vehicle and battery developers will present the chosen battery designs and performance data from existing vehicles, iii) automakers will discuss vehicle development and energy-storage requirements, and iv) battery developers will present the latest achievements in meeting the various xEV architectures’ requirements.
