OEMs have made remarkable improvements to the EV powertrain over recent years to extend range, reduce costs, and improve the driving experience. Another key item that will help drive greater consumer acceptance of full electric vehicles is faster charging times. Progress in achieving 400A and less than 30-minute charging has been slow due to limitations in the current standardization of the infrastructure and vehicle interface, thermal management, and battery reliability.
