- The manufacture of lower cost electric vehicles is conditional on the decrease of component costs, with battery packs forming one of the largest parts of their cost structure
- Hillcrest Energy Technologies’ revolutionary inverter technology, which forms an integral part of an electrical vehicle’s powertrain, allows EV’s to improve thermal management and reduce switching losses
- Improved power quality resulting from more efficient power inverters can enable automakers to obtain higher powertrain efficiency and consequently, reduce their battery packs
- Hillcrest Energy Technologies separately seized the opportunity to announce the appointment of Samuel Yik as their new CFO
One of the world’s most inexpensive electric vehicles, the Changli Freeman, currently has a listing price of approximately $1,000.
