New battery concept to reach 1000 km electric vehicle range

You cannot get a good range today with electric cars. One reason is that the batteries require a lot of space. Fraunhofer scientists are stacking large cells on top of one another. This provides vehicles with more power. Initial tests in the laboratory have been positive. In the medium term, the project partners are striving …

Fuel filters optimization through 3D simulation

Fuel filters developed for cars have to meet stricter and stricter requirements, yet they also need to be ready for the market in ever shorter periods of time. Designers caught between these two demands now have support in the form of a simulation tool: it calculates all the relevant characteristics of filter design – cleaning …

Heating system using conductive carbon nanotubes for electric cars

Fraunhofer researchers will exhibit the demo model of an energy-efficient heating system for electric cars at the IAA: a coated film that produces a broad, radiant heat. Electric car drivers now have one more reason to love the summer, because in the winter, the vehicle’s range declines markedly due to the additional energy demanded by …
