Advancements including longer lasting, higher performing batteries, greater connectivity, more accurate and connected sensors, enhanced system monitoring, faster charging, and improved cabin features are producing much higher heat loads. In addition to this enhanced performance and functionality, Manufacturers are demanding smaller, lighter form factors. The excess heat generated by so much power in such a compact form can easily lead to system failures and threats to passenger safety if not managed efficiently and effectively.
Each EV generation has gotten lighter, safer, more reliable, and better connected, and will continue to do so for each new model to come. It will be imperative that cooling solutions progress ahead of vehicle innovation for each new advancement to test and prove safety and reliability.
