Li-ion batteries enable electric vehicles with impressive performance. However, ambitious goals to further increase driving range, accelerate charging, and to reduce cost, lead to record levels of innovation in this time of change. Mercedes-Benz R&D North America (MBRDNA) teams in Michigan and California are keeping up with—but also leading—developments of battery technology in this part of the world. In addition to performance of electrochemical storage systems, MBRDNA is also interested in the sustainability of new technology.
