Material and Design Enhancements are Driving Electric Vehicle Innovation

When Benjamin Franklin proved lightning and electricity were one and the same using a kite, a key and a strong hypothesis, this force of nature became a prime candidate for experimentation rather than simple parlor tricks. More than 100 years later, Thomas Edison perfected the incandescent light bulb and made electricity affordable for all.

Electricity continues to power innovation today, especially within the automotive industry where manufacturers are grappling with the challenge of making vehicles more fuel efficient. Advancements in electrification and lithium-ion batteries are driving serious growth in the all-electric vehicles (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) space.
