Battery Electric Vehicle Architectures 2023 – June 20-21, Detroit, Michigan 

By Connector Supplier | May 30, 2023

BEVA trade showThe North American BEV industry is at a crossroads, facing challenges such as inc reasing costs and limitations in the availability of raw materials, as well as the emergence of competing technologies. These challenges are compounded by consumer concerns surrounding range and cost. Companies offering products with less than 250 miles of range are not meeting the market’s needs, so cost-effective solutions must be found to address range anxiety.  

Coming to Detroit this June, the latest instalment of the Battery Electric Vehicle Architecture USA (BEVA USA) series will once again bring together the industry’s leading OEMs and supply chain professionals to discuss such pressing issues, and potential solutions, in the BEV industry including   

  • Madhusudan Raghavan, Group Manager, Battery and System Architecture, General Motors R&D  
  • William Braff, Director of Advanced Engineering Systems, Lucid Motors
    Trevor Wilcox, Electrical Engineering Specialist High Voltage Battery Expert, Volkswagen of America 
  • Amit Ranjan, Engineering Manager – Battery Manufacturing, Canoo  
  • David Weir, Senior Manager Vehicle Structural Integration and Battery Frames, Jaguar Land Rover 

Engineering Best Strategy for BEVs 

This year’s conference is designed to provide a realistic and actionable approach to finding answers. Our program will feature a balanced mix of technical and strategic topics, showcasing breakthroughs and best practices to help OEMs lower costs and improve overall performance.      

Join the industry this June to explore the future direction of BEV architecture and the potential role of fuel cells in extending range through hybrid models.  Additionally, the conference will delve into optimizing battery integration and thermal management, featuring evaluations of multiple solutions, including solid-state batteries and integration of batteries into the vehicle structure.  

Prioritizing New Technologies That Make A Difference
