The automotive industry has used composite materials on exterior and semi-structural applications for over half a century, for their benefits in mass-reduction, cost-reduction, corrosion-resistance, and styling flexibility. But the rapid growth of electric, hybrid, and autonomous vehicles has created new challenges for the material's properties, durability, and value. This presentation will summarize the past and present use of composites for EV/AV applications (battery covers, exterior panels, body structures, stowage systems), highlight composites' advantages and limitations, and review new material technologies developed specifically for EV battery enclosure systems.
Key takeaways: A basic understanding of
1 - where and why composite materials have been used on past electric and hybrid vehicles.
2 - benefits and limitations of using composite materials for EV/HEV/AV applications.
3 - new technologies to address the unique performance requirements of battery enclosures.
