Volkswagen ID.4 Battery Prototype Update

Volkswagen VW ID.4 Battery Prototype Update Sandy Munro

The latest episode of Munro Live covers Sandy Munro’s mockup of the VW ID.4 Battery prototype coming from the work we have done with Sabic.

In this episode, Sandy goes over some of the ideas behind creating a practical battery system that will work best for this vehicle, taking the best ideas and attributes of other battery systems we have analyzed.

From keeping the cooling system architecture of the ID.4 but instead building it into the new composite body of the battery housing to the connectors, borrowing load bearing and structural ideas from aerospace projects that we have worked on in the past, comparing larger battery cell designs that are glued to the battery box that actually provide more space for additions and more.
