Electric drive vehicles (EDVs) are seen on American roads in increasing numbers. Related to this market trend and critical for it to increase are improvements in battery technology. Battery Technology for Electric Vehicles examines in detail at the research support from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the development of nickel-metal-hydride (NiMH) and lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries used in EDVs. With public support comes accountability of the social outcomes associated with public investments. The book overviews DOE investments in advanced battery technology, documents the adoption of these batteries in EDVs on the road, and calculates the economic benefits associated with these improved technologies. It provides a detailed global evaluation of the net social benefits associated with DOEs investments, the results of the benefit-to-cost ratio of over 3.6-to-1, and the life-cycle approach that allows adopted EDVs to remain on the road over their expected future life, thus generating economic and environmental health benefits into the future.... 1999 through 2012 1999 2000 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Honda Insight 17 ... 6, 699 10, 663 2, 864 649 Honda CR-Z 5, 249 11, 330 4, 192 Lincoln MKZ 1, 192 5, 739 6, 067 Mercedes ML450 766 1 20anbsp;...
