Vehicle electrification – once considered a trend related primarily to the manufacturing and assembly of batteries – now affects nearly every aspect of today’s vehicles. As the demand for vehicle electrification rapidly increases, manufacturers and suppliers face an array of engineering challenges.

To help manufacturers prepare for and navigate the engineering demands that electric vehicle (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) bring to the industry, EWI has developed a vehicle electrification overview and three technical papers that analyze major challenge areas and work that is being done to address them.

  • Addressing Critical Challenges in Vehicle Electrification: An EWI Overview
  • Multiple Challenges in Vehicle Electrification: Batteries and Beyond
  • Material Joining Challenges in the Cable and Wiring Systems of EV-HEVs
  • Joining Challenges in the Manufacture of Motors for Electric Vehicles – Stator Winding Assemblies

Vehicle Electrification Market

In 2016, EVs and HEVs accounted for 1% of all vehicle sales worldwide. By 2025, one study estimates that EVs and HEVs will account for 30% of sales worldwide. According to another study, 57% of all passenger vehicle sales will be electric by 2040.

What do you see as the most concerning issues today for vehicle electrification? What specific problems do you face at your company, and what information or services do you need to solve them?
