So how do electric vehicle batteries work? Let’s start with the chemical makeup and reaction of the
Electric vehicles have an electric motor instead of an internal combustion engine. There are separate batteries that power the accessories inside the vehicles and batteries that power the electric traction motor, the auxiliary battery and the traction battery pack respectively. The electric traction motor then drives the wheels. The efficiency of this battery will determine the driving range of the EV.
Now let’s unpack what is in an electric vehicle battery pack. Depending on the manufacturer, it could consist of hundreds of batteries as small as the ones in your smartphone but with more capacity. These small batteries are then clustered into cells at a fixed number to track the battery capacity. Then a certain number of cells are placed into a module or simply put a protective case. To create a battery pack, a number of modules are placed together with a battery management system in the electric vehicle. The battery management system could consist of controls and protection as well as a cooling system for the batteries.
One benefit of the lithium ion battery is that its weight is much less
