Light electric vehicles
The evolution of light vehicle electrification
As a leader in power semiconductors, Infineon strives to provide the most efficient, reliable, and smart solutions in the market. Keeping up with the latest market trends worldwide, Infineon prepares for the ramp-up of the following, including but not limited to, types of light electric vehicles.
- Micromobility - electric bicycle, electric kick-scooter
- Electric powered 2/3 wheelers (ePTW) - e-moped, e-scooter, e-rickshaw, e-motorcycle
- MicroEV - Electric Microcars, low-speed electric vehicles, neighborhood EV (NEV), electric quadricycle
- Other electric transporters (e.g. e-forklift, e-golf cart) with less than 200V batteries
Contrasting to automotive requirements, these applications (though also on-road) require different sets of safety and qualification standards which place more responsibility on the operator rather than the vehicle itself to mitigate the risk. Many of Infineon's non-automotive and automotive offerings are created targeting these applications.
Different from the traditional vehicles with internal combustion engines, these types of vehicles are powered by batteries with bus voltage ranging from 28V to 168V. The commonality among the electric light vehicles is motor drives/inverters, battery management systems, battery chargers/stations, and the increasingly popular smart features and electronics made possible due to their larger size batteries.
