The situation today
Current EVs are typically charged in several hours, but this only covers a limited range of around 100 km. Due to long recharge times, EV drivers have to contend with extended downtime, making EV ineffective candidates for taxis.
Shorter downtime to maximize range
EVA sets to solve this limitation by only requiring 15 minutes of recharge to cover a realistic 200 km range based on Singaporean driving patterns. With short, rapid recharge times, taxi drivers can now quickly recharge for the next part of their shifts during a break.
The challenges surrounding fast charging include the high electric currents needed and the heat that is consequently generated in the battery pack during the recharging process. Our engineers have designed an innovative concept for more effective thermal management of the battery cells that targets to extend the pack’s lifespan.
