#Bosch #battery target: 50 kWh in a 190 kg pack, 75% charge in 15 minutes

Bosch battery target: 50 kWh in a 190 kg pack, 75% charge in 15 minutes 13 October 2015 Bosch is investing €400 million (US$455 million) per year in electromobility; part of that investment is researching batteries with twice the energy density at lower costs than available today by 2020. Driving the investment is Bosch’s expectation that ten years from now, some 15% of all new vehicles worldwide will have an electrical powertrain. Dr. Thorsten Ochs, head of battery technology R&D at the new Bosch research campus in Renningen, says that to achieve widespread acceptance of electromobility, mid-sized vehicles will need to have 50 kilowatt hours of usable energy. With conventional lead batteries, this would mean increasing the weight of the battery to 1.9 metric tons, even without wiring and the holder, he notes. Today’s lithium-ion batteries are superior in this respect, sto...
