Electric Vehicle
Creates uniqueness

Electric vehicle efficiency

The average gasoline vehicle consists of about 30,000 parts, while the average electric vehicle consists of about 10,000 to 20,000 parts. Despite this increased amounts, electric vehicles are structuralized in such a way that make them easier to assemble. Due to many electric vehicles having a similar structure, it has become more difficult to differentiate cars from one another and to identify their unique characteristics.

Glass required for electric vehicles

In exterior design of electric vehicles (EV), the windshield, roof glass and rear window are increasingly being designed to look like one large integrated glass panel. While this advanced design makes a vehicle look more stylish, it also means that due to the increase of the glass size more sunlight can enter the interior. For electric vehicles, it is important to manage the heat entering the vehicle – not only for the comfort of driver and passengers – but especially because this influences the driving range of the vehicle indirectly when people make use of the air conditioning more often. Automotive glass is required to meet both the aesthetic and functional demands for electric vehicles. By improving functionality of the glass, the car can be kept cool and the driving range can be improved.
