“Developing a high-voltage vehicle battery that is cost efficient, powerful, and reliable at the same time – this is the proverbial rocket science.”
Dr. Joachim Fetzer, member of the executive management of the Gasoline Systems division of Bosch responsible for electric mobility, explains that Bosch wants to double Li-ion battery capacities within next five years, as well as explore new battery technologies.
“We are far from one million EVs but we are getting there at a faster rate and with greater intensity. All we need to do is to just sustain the gains we have achieved, maintain the momentum, and we will reach our goal by 2020.”
Rommel Juan, President of the Electric Vehicle Association of the Philippines, is confident that the country will have one million EVs on the streets by 2020. Some 40,000 are said to hit the roads there this year.
