After the lead-acid batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries and nickel-metal hydride battery change of generations of technology, today's mainstream electric vehicles (including plug-in hybrids) are switched to the embrace of the lithium-ion battery. The reason, better power to weight ratio (unit weight may be stored by the battery power), better high temperature and low temperature performance and longer life expectancy, which are important factors of the lithium battery to the mainstream. Sorted by energy efficiency, the current mainstream electric vehicles use lithium-ion battery type battery lithium cobalt oxide, respectively (Tesla), lithium manganese batteries (Prius, leaf), and lithium iron phosphate battery (BYD E6, promise 1E).
