Realizing safe, long-life, and rapidly rechargeable electric vehicles

Plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) are the promising solution to the anxiety about driving distance of electric vehicles. However, large battery of PHEV could compress cabin space. The high input/output performance of SCiB™ makes it possible to reduce the size and weight of a battery system. Therefore, SCiB™ does not restrict the available cabin space and driving performance. In addition, PHEV with SCiB™ is rapidly rechargeable.

Small battery with full performance

Plug-in hybrid vehicles are designed to drive with an electric motor in urban areas and with a combustion engine when they derive highways for a long-distance travel. Even with low voltage and small battery pack, SCiB™ will provide sufficient electric power to drive a vehicle in urban areas. In addition, PHEV with SCiB™ can be recharged in a short period of time.

[Driving highways] Combustion engine drives a car | [Driving in urban area] Electric motor drives a car without CO2 emissions
[Conventional PHEV] Large battery pack compresses the cabin space. | PHEV with SCiB™] Small and lightweight battery pack takes up little cabin space. (Spacious cabin, Even subcompact cars can be modeled as PHEVs, Low-voltage battery reduces total system cost.)
