How automakers are increasing EV battery voltages
In this supplement, you can read about the following:
How silicon-carbide technology can address high-voltage EV challenges?
Sales of new electric vehicles (EVs) in the US exceeded five percent of the total market for the first time in 2022, joining 18 other countries worldwide that have surpassed the same milestone. Although EVs are achieving market acceptance that bodes well for future success, adoption must continue and accelerate. Changing to tailpipe-free vehicles is a pillar of governments’ plans to meet climate pledges under the Paris Accord and improve air quality in major cities.
Rare earths and EVs — it’s not about batteries
Rare earths are important in the manufacture of electric vehicles (EVs). Although there are sustainability challenges related to EV batteries, rare earths are not used in lithium-ion batteries. They’re necessary for the magnets that form the main propulsion motors. The batteries mostly rely on lithium and cobalt (not rare earths).
