As more and more carmakers are now introducing electric vehicles (EVs), the battery and its charging and safety have gained the utmost importance. Counterpoint Research’s data shows EV sales crossed 10 million units in 2022. And as more users and fleet owners consider EVs, be it passenger cars, taxis, or even electric trucks, the range anxiety and charging infrastructure are where many are held back. So, what are companies doing to address these issues?
In a discussion with Qnovo, a company that specializes in developing intelligent lithium-ion battery management software, we gained some interesting insights on how it improves the battery performance in EVs. The desired user experience, be it charging or performance that replicates internal combustion engines, is essential for EV adoption. But how are carmakers and battery companies working together to deliver the best experience?
In the latest episode of ‘The Counterpoint Podcast’, host Jeff Fieldhack is joined by Qnovo CEO Nadim Maluf to talk about the intelligent battery management platform and more. They discuss topics including EVs, battery charging and performance, safety, and much more. The discussion also focuses on Qnovo’s technology implementation beyond EVs.
