The fast introduction of electric vehicles in the market will allow for extensive use of telematics services. Driving an electric car with its limited range and poorly developed infrastructure requires full control of location and availability of charging stations. Finding the way to the nearest charging station combined with knowledge of the charging level in the batteries will mean peace of mind to the EV driver.
The batteries are key components in the EV industry, Life Cycle Cost for an EV battery stands for a big portion of the entire cost of ownership. A well maintained and well handled battery increases the lifetime of a battery and remote monitoring by means of telematics provides help to achieve this.
Our present projects with battery powered vehicles as well as hybrids give us valuable experiences and allow us to provide well working telematics solutions for electric vehicles.
