The moments that your electric car not only puts a smile on your face, but also makes you despair, electric car drivers have probably already experienced. Do you recognize yourself?
The market for e-cars will continue to grow in 2022: After 355.000 registered vehicles in 2021, there will probably be more than half a million new registrations this year. The start-up Twaice is benefiting from the global trend towards electric cars. It analyzes the batteries, which are currently still the most expensive part of the vehicle. Last year, the Munich team secured new financing for 21 million euros ($26 million). We throw together with Dr. Michael Baumann from Twaice looks to the future.
The condition of the battery in used e-cars is crucial for a reliable used car purchase. So far, mileage and durable thermal management for the battery were mainly criteria for used electric cars. The Munich start-up Twaice is campaigning for more transparency in the evaluation of used batteries. In a short interview with Lennart Hinrichs (Commercial Director of TWAICE Technologies GmbH) we take a look at the projects for evaluating used batteries.
