At the point when you purchase a vehicle, you must discuss with your family or relatives about the variant or variety of vehicle which suits you. Those who indulge in malpractices focus on tires and alloys, even headlights music systems for example. But the one part that no one notices and which could be the deciding factor for purchasing an electric vehicle is the rectangular box tucked neatly in the right-hand corner of the engine bay--the battery. The battery will be the most prominent part which you also select for purchasing for any vehicle. We expect EV (electric vehicle) sales of more than 1.6 million vehicles in FY23 if we are able to meet the consolidated demand with its supply and it would be the game-changer in the automobile industry. Lithium-Ion batteries for EV are the most required technology that is indispensable if we are talking about Batteries advancement because of its high energy density, fast charging, lightweight, etc.
When we think about the purchasing of an electric car battery, car battery ranges take an important place in our minds. It is considered a barrier in the market because it stops you from making your decision at the earliest. "Battery and range are obviously a critical part of EV ownership experience so you will see different combinations being offered to suit the needs of different consumers," said Balbir Dhillon, Audi, head of India. The new Audi e-tron that was launched earlier this year came with two different battery packs--a smaller 71 KWh pack with a certified range of 359 kilometers and a bigger 95 KWh pack that can go up to 484 kilometers. The higher range in the battery market is also supported with more performance -- 402 hp and 664 NM of torque against 308 hp and 504 Nm torque, for example.
In April 2019, Niti Aayog published a report titled “India’s Electric Mobility Transformation”, which triggered EV sales penetration in India at 70 percent for commercial cars, 30 percent for private cars, 40 percent for buses, and 80 percent for two- and three-wheelers by 2030. Electric cars in India are helpful for a complete transformation of vehicle demand. All the states of India producing car batteries are now formulating their strategies according to the new era of the electrical battery market in India.
In summary, the era ahead is the era of batteries in electrical vehicles and we cannot imagine the life of the automobile industry without it.
