Advanced Battery Pack for Kia EV

Monday, March 3rd, — Kia Motors

Class-leading cell energy density Wh/kg) ensures ‘around’ 200 km range

Innovative application of high capacity cathode

Soul EV power pack battery cells supplied by SK

(SEOUL) February 24, 2014 The Kia Soul EV is equipped with an power pack featuring polymer battery cells by SK Innovation. The pack, which has a energy density of 200 Wh/kg, is the of a three-year joint development between Kia Motors Corporation and SK in Korea.

Engineers from Kia developed the outstanding power featuring 192 lithium-ion polimer cells in eight modules, a total power output of 27 The pack incorporates state-of-the-art control technology to maintain cells at optimum temperature and design to enhance crash

Nickel-rich NCM (nickel-cobalt-manganese) cathode is used in the mass production of the cells for Soul EV. Energy which is dependent on cathode is a core performance factor EV driving range. By exploiting the energy density of its battery, the EV offers a driving range of 200 km on a single charge.

High electrolyte additive and anode were also developed to various performance requirements as safety and lifecycle), while high energy density.

In a special safety secure is used in the Kia Soul EV’s cells. The separator determines the and the charge/discharge speed of the battery. It has thermal resistance, which to keep the cell secure exposure to heat or fire by the shrinking of the separator if the temperature of the increases beyond normal

Together, the low electrical resistance cell, proper battery thermal control and accurate calculation improve the charging thereby enabling an outstanding charge’ time of 25 minutes kW DC) or 33 minutes (50 kW DC). Full time, depending on power takes up to five hours kW AC).

The electrolyte additive in the Soul EV will prevent the of battery performance at both low and temperatures, expanding the temperature of the battery usage and reducing the of the driving range according to the

Cold weather is notoriously for a battery and the Soul EV features a heating system, which the battery while the car is plugged the grid, prior to use. helps to maintain optimum performance regardless of external

For maximum ‘active safety’ the module is fitted with an protection device that the high voltage circuit if the battery cell swelling should occur due to overcharging.

Optimization of the raw materials used to the cathode morphology control and coating, the anode surface and electrolyte additive, plus the mechanical strength of the separator, class-best durability and safety of the

Background to Batteries

Kia Soul EV

A lithium-ion is a rechargeable battery which the electric power as chemical and uses it when necessary. The move from cathode to during charging and from to cathode during discharging. The is necessary as a medium for the transfer of the and the separator is necessary to separate the and cathode electrically.

Generally the consists of heavy oxides and can less electricity per weight the anode which consists of carbons. To increase the energy (energy to weight) of the battery it is important to increase the quantity of the stored by the cathode, since the of electricity should be balanced the cathode and anode.

Lithium-ion polymer battery is the name for the battery type uses ‘pouch film’ as a material. The name lithium-ion refers to the battery type uses a metal can as a packing

The advantages of a lithium-ion polymer (compared to normal lithium-ion include: greater efficiency due to the cell structure (fewer lower costs, increased and reliability (thanks to better diffusion and internal pressure ease of manufacture in a variety of and shapes.
