Boeing Dreamliner: Implications for Electric Vehicles

Feb. 1, 2013
Very early on larger batteries such as traction batteries for electric vehicles, whether hybrid or pure electric, had moved to chemically safer “less cobalt” and “no cobalt” formulations.

IDTechEx analysts have ten years of experience of the lithium-ion traction battery business and they comment as follows on the implications for electric vehicles - land, water and airborne - of these Dreamliner batteries, that are not for traction, apparently misbehaving. After all, lithium-ion traction battery packs can be smaller, similar or larger than the Dreamliner batteries and they are similarly made and rely on similar Battery Management Systems BMS to keep them safe and performing optimally.
