Agenda

DAY 2 – LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIAL SELECTION TO IMPROVE BEV RANGE AND PERFORMANCE

MULTI-MATERIAL SELECTION TO INCREASE THE RANGE OF BEV’S WITHOUT INCREASING BATTERY SIZE

Identify The Most Suitable Material & Joining Technique

08:00 Coffee and Registration

08:50 Chair’s Opening Remarks

John Catterall, Formerly VP Automotive Program, AISI (Ret.)

KEYNOTE PANEL –EXTENDING RANGE AND REDUCING COST 

09:00 Optimal Strategies For Next Generation BEV Architectures Considering Range, Cost & Performance   

The issue of B.E.V. range and light weighting is now a strategic issue for OEMS to address for different market segments. For example a city car versus an electric SUV for longer journeys, how much range do customers actually want? Exactly how much light weighting is required to extend the range of a BEV without increasing the battery size? How are OEMS quantifying the cost of range extension exactly? And what are the latest engineering solutions to make cost competitive range extension possible without installing an even bigger battery?
