KEYNOTE PANELS: B.E.V. PLATFORM STRATEGY FOR 2020 AND BEYOND

08:40 Assessment Of The BEV Market & Production Landscape For 2020 And Beyond

There is a little doubt that the automotive industry has been turned upside down by the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak. Whilst the short-term impacts have been felt already, it is still unclear what the longer-term effects will be.

The purpose of this panel is to discuss the impact of the global Covid-19 lockdown on BEV production and to evaluate positive trends that have emerged, including:

  • How the lockdown has affected domestic/household demand for BEVs
  • The impact of lockdown on R&D: has progress in new research stalled, or has lockdown bought BEV manufacturers time to 'think'?
  • The increased appetite for EV commercial and delivery solutions in the retail sector
  • Growing demand for whole-lifecycle green BEV solutions (from manufacture to charging)

Extended Audience Q&A 

COST-OPTIMISED STRATEGY ON BATTERY INTEGRATION INTO THE BODY-IN-WHITE

BATTERY PACK INTEGRATION

10:00 HV Powertrain Optimisation For High Performance Vehicle Applications

  • High performance electric powertrain take the already-demanding requirements placed on the HV components to the next level. From an electrical point of view, limited operation of the components outside of their nominal boundary range may be required to reach the performance targets.
  • Thermally, a balanced approach to the sizing of all cooling circuits is essential in order to avoid performance limitations.
  • Understanding where the limits of the operation can be pushed via calibration and where the development plays a critical role is key to the overall optimisation of a HV powertrain.
