Battery requirements for future automotive applications

EUCAR is committed to supporting the targets of the 2015 Paris climate change conference, COP 21. The highest priority is to mitigate the impacts of climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve these goals EUCAR is committed to developing and providing sustainable powertrain technologies that contribute to an enhanced quality of life of the EU citizens.

The EUCAR experts from the member companies identified and formulated research needs for future batteries, improving the performance and efficiency of xEVs while ensuring industrial and economic feasibility.

Battery Requirements 2030 (Version 2019)

The purpose of this document is to provide an automotive perspective on the requirement targets for the main traction battery in BEVs and (Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) PHEVs by the year 2030. Based on today’s understanding of the state of art of battery technologies and their applications and forecasting their development into the next decade, the expert group has set challenging targets for battery requirements. These shall be used as realistic and achievable objectives to guide researchers, policymakers and other interested parties towards setting goals for this specific timeframe. The targets are presented in a table format for BEV and PHEV, focussing on average mass-market vehicles.

In order to track the fast-paced battery and EV development, the EUCAR expert group recommends checking and if needed updating this document version.
