A range extender for electric vehicles, also known as an auxiliary power unit (APU), is a piece of equipment that provides additional energy for functions and operations other than forward motion. Range extenders for electric vehicles are popular in heavy commercial and industrial vehicles. Unlike traditional cars, which are powered by diesel engines, EV range extenders are powered by battery packs. A single-phase or three-phase control system may be used to power an EV range extender.

Key Trends in Global Market

Growing Demand for Increased Driving Range in Electric Vehicles

The surge in electric vehicle sales and production has compelled automakers to build vehicle range extenders. As electric vehicles’ batteries have a small power storage space that is discharged according to the vehicle’s use. Furthermore, the lack of adequate vehicle charging facilities adds to the acceptance of electric vehicles.

Furthermore, the lack of adequate vehicle charging infrastructure bolsters the introduction of these systems for EV in order to have a pleasant driving encounter and lessen the demand for battery charging after some time. As a result, an surge in demand for electric vehicle range extensions is a crucial factor that is anticipated to propel the EV market forward.

Impact of COVID 19 on Global Market

Global market is also affected badly by pandemic. However, surging fuel prices day-by-day and governments all over the world have initiated various schemes and initiatives, to encourage a buyer for choosing electric vehicles instead of conventional vehicles. Countries, like Germany, India, Korea, Norway, France, Netherlands, etc., are other such nations that have numerous incentives for publics keen to purchase an electric vehicle.
