Breakthrough of Electro-Mobility
The acceptance of electro-mobility by the consumer is steadily increasing. Recently, a major market breakthrough of fully electric vehicles has been achieved by Nissan with the Nissan Leaf, Tesla with its model S, Volkswagen e-up and finally BMW with its BMW i3, as an active partner in FiveVB. However, battery technology is still the most important and critical component. Further improvement is necessary to finally achieve a significant market share of electric vehicles.
Push Europeans Battery Industry
The vision of this FiveVB project is to push European’s Lithium battery industry and academia to take over a leading role in the development and manufacturing of Lithium Ion cells and materials to provide cost and performance competitive Lithium Ion cells and batteries to European and Non-European Automotive Industry.
