Bosch drives development of both batteries and fuel cells

Bosch drives development of both batteries and fuel cells

To power a midsize electric vehicle, the battery should provide a usable electric energy content of 50 kWh. Today’s lithium-ion batteries typically feature energy content of some 30 kWh – at a weight of 230 kilograms. To achieve the goal of 50 kWh, the battery would come to a whopping weight of 380 kilograms. Bosch said its goal is to create a 50 kWh battery that weighs only 190 kilograms. At the same time, the researchers hope to be able to significantly reduce the charging time; the goal is getting 75% of the energy content into the battery in less than 15 minutes. The company conducts its research activities in a joint venture with GS Yuasa and the Japanese carmaker Mitsubishi. A breakthrough could come however not from the Far East but from California: Bosch recently acquired Californian company Seeo Inc. The startup company has developed a technology that could well h...
