KEYOU suggest that HICE technology can go "12 times as far as vehicles with batteries of the same storage weight", meaning the technology allows the same vehicle payload as diesel engine vehicles and KEYOU suggest their HICE system offers a similar range. - Short refuelling time for hydrogen systems vs battery charging. - HICE operational lifetime with maintenance will likely be on a par with diesel engines, which last the lifetime of the vehicle. For battery and fuel cell systems the forecast operational lifetimes are shorter than the usual operational lifetime of the vehicle. - Positive strategic investors NAGEL and partnerships (DEUTZ, Liebherr Group (unconfirmed), Mammoet.

When electric vehicles crash, what happens to the battery?

Safety, range and costs: these are the three big premises of electromobility. Safety definitely comes first. Lithium-based traction batteries are usually completely enclosed in the battery case and integrated in the vehicle to protect the battery from all conceivable stresses and external influences. This "armour" has an effect on construction, weight, size and overall design of the vehicle.

Market forecasts, key powertrains, components for industrial EVs

n this second article on the iVT Electric and Hybrid Industrial Vehicle Technology Symposium November 9-10 in Cologne Germany, we look at powertrains and components being favoured. Because of the large power surges in and out with many of these vehicles, you more often saw supercapacitors compared to on-road vehicles and hybrids remain the preferred option by far.
