Electric Battery Technology:

The speed, mileage, torque and all such vital parameters of an electric car solely depends on the specification of the motor and the battery pack used in the car. While using a powerful motor is no big deal, the problem lies with designing a Battery Pack that could source enough current for the motor for long time without degrading its lifespan. To cope up with the voltage and current demand EV manufacturers have to combine hundreds if not thousands of cells together to form a Battery Pack for a single car.
