A chassis-integrated sandwich structure of solid electrolytes currently in development is projected to deliver all-electric driving ranges that far out-distance today's typical 200-mile (320 km) EV real-world driving range. IAV, Thyssenkrupp AG and Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems (IKTS) are the core project partners working to develop EMBATT, a chassis-embedded energy technology.

“Driving ranges depend on the application, but it's possible to achieve up to 1000 km [621 mi] with EMBATT technology and that's a significant increase from what is possible today,” said Michael Clauss, development engineer at IAV GmbH, an automotive engineering services company. Current EV applications generally package lithium-ion batteries as wound or stacked structures that are inserted into cylindrical or prismatic cell housings.
