Light vehicle development: The project EU-LIVE (Efficient Urban Light Vehicles) led by the Virtual Vehicle Research Center in Graz has kicked off. It aims at developing a comprehensive solution for the next generation of electrified light vehicles. A modular development approach will provide a complete range of different electrified powertrains and vehicle bodies with different designs that are cost-efficient and easy to produce.

24M-Battery-PrototypeNew Li-ion cells: After five years of research, the A123 spinoff 24M Technologies has presented a new battery cell design that will allegedly cut production costs in half. 24M uses a semi-solid form of electrolyte, allowing for a much simpler design. 10,000 prototype cells were built so far and 24M expects to be producing limited quantities of batteries in 2017, and to begin high-volume production in 2020.
