The growth in electrification initiatives is a bold and clear statement from manufacturers that there is cleaner, more efficient ways to power vehicles, and that electric vehicles on the roads will soon become the norm. Projected growth is said to be at a compound annual rate of almost 40%. By 2025, that’s almost 2,000,000 electric vehicles.
There are specific factors driving this rapid development; government legislation and environmental pressures the most common and whilst OEMs welcome the switch, the electrification of vehicles doesn’t come without its challenges.
One such challenge is protecting the life blood of these vehicles – the all-important battery.
