Advanced Automotive Battery Technology, Application and Market
Wednesday, February 8 to Friday February 10, 2012
AABC 2012. AABTAM Symposium: Advanced Automotive Battery Technology, Application and Market - Session 1
Market Development of EVs, HEVs, and their Batteries
The first mass-produced EV and PHEV, respectively the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt, entered the market last year and have only achieved mediocre sales volumes so far, in spite of heavy subsidies. At the same time, the U.S. have signed into law a set of new, radically more stringent, Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFÉ) standards that can barely be achieved without significant vehicle hybridization. In this session, independent industry observers and representatives of governments and carmakers will assess the various market-growth scenarios and sift through the proposed electrified-vehicle configurations to discuss the likely direction of the advanced-vehicle market and the impact on the advanced automotive battery industry.
