New battery housing from MAHLE reduces weight and CO2 footprint of electric vehicles

Stuttgart/Germany, August 14, 2019 - A key factor in the acceptance of electric vehicles is sufficient cruising range. Instead of achieving this by using ever larger batteries, MAHLE offers a newly developed battery housing with integrated thermal management as a solution for increasing the rapid chargingcapability of the battery. This allows traction batteries to be about 40 percent smaller and thus recharged very quickly. MAHLE is thereby not only reducing the CO2 footprint of the electric vehicle, but also lowering the demand for raw materials for battery production, which are becoming increasingly scarce worldwide,
