Battery Check for More Transparency

Battery Check for More Transparency

In order to offer drivers of electric cars a simple way of assessing the state of health (SOH) of the battery over its entire service life, TÜV Rheinland is now offering a "Battery Quick Check" in collaboration with Twaice.

2024/03/15 - The condition of the battery is crucial for the resale value of an electric vehicle. Vehicle owners are therefore interested in knowing how far battery degradation has progressed, while potential buyers want to objectively and independently assess the "State Of Health". The battery in electric vehicles is a wear part that deteriorates over time, both through charging and discharging cycles and through the mere passage time. The Battery Quick Check requires that the electric vehicle be connected to...

5 times faster: New process accelerates battery cell production

One goal in battery development is to maximise the number of battery cells in the battery pack of an electric car. But SVOLT's high-speed stacking is about more than that: the process has many significant advantages.

It was an April Fool's joke in spring 2016 when the fast food chain BURGER KING® presented its new "Square" product line on social media.

And all this without changing the portion size.
It was no joke when a large coffee retail chain announced at the beginning of 2023 that...

$12 Billion for Battery Production from U.S. Government

The US government has made a total of 12 billion US dollars available to car manufacturers and suppliers in the form of grants and loans for the expansion of electromobility out of a total volume of 370 billion dollars.

This funding is intended for retrofitting factories for the production of electric vehicles and the necessary components. This move, announced by U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm, is seen as a response to criticism from automakers and unions who had lamented environmental regulations.
The government wants to ensure that no jobs are jeopardized while transitioning to electromobility...
