Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT in Pfinztal, Germany are trying to help electric vehicles lose some weight. Why? So it can go further.
Science daily: Everyone is talking about electric drives, and the scientists from Fraunhofer are also working on them. Engineers have replaced a battery box for lithium-ion batteries with a lightweight component. Not only does the housing save weight and sustain no damage in an accident — for the first time ever, it can also be mass-produced.
