Gasoline and lithium battery prices into the key to success of electric vehicles

- Jan 11, 2017-

The hybrid buses (EVVs) and the pure electric taxis (EVs) from Shenzhen side of the road from time to time remind us that the era of electric vehicles is coming and we are hoping to gradually break away from the fast-rising gasoline price nightmare and enter a low A New Era of Carbon Technology Leaders.

According to market research firm IMS Research moderately optimistic estimates, by 2016, up to 7% of light vehicles will be electric vehicles, and this proportion will rise to 15% by 2020. Of which hybrid cars will account for two-thirds, and the remaining one-third by the plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and pure electric vehicles on the points.

Mark Munzer, director of OPM, Infineon's automotive drive division, said: "The current shortage of global oil resources is fueling demand for electric vehicles, and government support from China, Japan and Israel is driving the electric vehicle market Development of an important factor in the future of the electric car market will be the key to success depends largely on the price of gasoline and lithium battery costs.

Another major drag will come from vested interests in the existing automotive supply chain, as electric vehicles will bring rapid changes at all levels, including driving habits, supply chains, infrastructure and automotive services.

Electric vehicle drive mode changes, but also makes the cooperation on the industrial chain diversification. For example, the depot in the motor system and even the entire drive system components suppliers have to purchase; in battery management and control systems, vehicle manufacturers mostly lack the ability to develop independently, generally dependent on battery module suppliers to provide the package, Slightly R & D strength of choice and semiconductor suppliers to develop.

Despite the electric car lithium iron phosphate batteries in terms of cost, power density, reliability, life and so there are still many challenges. However, the long-term Chinese market, the pure electric vehicle is the trend, in the corresponding charging network and the corresponding standard is not perfect before, HEV or PHEV and other hybrid technology can be used as complementary technology.
