We could run the risk of over-relying on battery cells to power electric vehicles (BEVs).
If the energy crisis worsens, perhaps we should pay more attention to other sources or speed them up.
Some pundits say the current crisis should be seen as a real lesson about the risk of over-focusing on one source. Such confidence could slow the number of electric vehicles that could be produced each year and thwart government plans.
Figures like Markus Heyn, head of mobility services at Robert Bosch, are an important voice outlining the danger of over-reliance on battery cells.
As Automotive News Europe reports, he asked what would happen if there weren’t enough battery cells to meet demand.
Alternatives being discussed include fuel cells, which use hydrogen and oxygen to power electric motors.
The big question is: Can more be done? If so, is now the time to do it safely?
