Design considerations for interconnect technology used in EV powertrains

07 October 2022

Electric vehicles (EVs) are set to become the basis of future transport, and the transition is happening much more quickly than imagined. In the last 18 months, EV uptake has increased dramatically, with the inflated oil prices currently being experienced likely to accelerate adoption still further.

EV registrations are now getting close to one million per month worldwide. They have already overtaken new diesel vehicle sales (January 2022). Market analysts now expect them to exceed sales for all new internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles within the 2025 timeframe – far earlier than their previous projections had outlined (where this was not forecast to happen before 2030).
EVs are, in principle, far less complex than traditional ICEs, due to the elimination of the thousands of mechanical components in an engine and all the supporting mechanical subsystems. However, they still present a whole new set of engineering challenges.
