EV battery production has room for improvement

Factories must become more energy efficient, while new cell-to-chassis architectures will bring performance and cost benefits to the table. By Freddie Holmes

The automotive industry is on the hunt for electric vehicle (EV) batteries that can charge faster, go further and last longer.
