According to the classic TV show, The Jetsons, we’re a mere four decades away from driving flying cars. While that may be science-fiction, the era of electronic vehicles (EV) is much more realistic. The global EV market increased 43% from 2019 to 2020 – and hit the 10 million stock milestone in the process. Considering that this growth occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s safe to say that the future is now when it comes to electric vehicles. One key driver of the growth and mainstream consumer adoption of EVs is advancements in battery technology. Today’s batteries (and therefore vehicles) offer higher capacity, extended driving range, improved motor performance, and faster charging. However, one drawback to high-powered batteries that can present a design challenge – and even potential safety hazard – is thermal runaway.
