We saw in a previous article that Tesla and General Motors use glycol liquid cooling to shed battery heat, and ended by saying there was room for improvement. Why? Better cooling will be needed as electric cars go to higher charging rates. These liquid cooled systems do now work OK during charging and vehicle operation, […]

Both General Motors and Tesla Motors are firm believers in active liquid-cooling and incorporate Thermal Management System (TMS) in their electric cars. It could be argued that a Chevy Volt’s or Model S’ TMS is equally as important as the battery cell chemistry because the battery cell life depends on it. As automakers introduce higher […]
