Go green and save green with electric vehicles! Unlike traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, electric vehicles run on batteries, cutting down on harmful greenhouse gas emissions and saving energy. While the initial cost may be higher, the long-term savings are worth it, especially as electric vehicles become more affordable and accessible.

1. The Trends of EV Charging Development

However, the electric vehicle market also faces some challenges. Currently, most EVs can only travel a few hundred miles on a single charge, which limits their usefulness for long-distance travel. According to Global EV Outlook 2022, the number of publicly accessible chargers was up by 37% in 2021. And as some sources reported, over 70% of the global EV manufacturers are considering ultra-fast charging (150-350kw) as an option in battery electric vehicles in next 5-7 years. This has led to the development of fast charging infrastructure that can charge a battery in minutes, instead of hours.
Another trend in EV battery charging design is the use of wireless charging technology. This allows EVs to charge without having to physically connect to a charging station. Instead, the vehicle is parked over a wireless charging pad, which then charges the battery. Though it is in the early stage of development, we can also expect to make charging even more convenient in the future.

2. How to Accelerate the Iteration of EV Charging Development?

EV battery charging companies that support these developments are in a race to develop EV chargers quickly and cost-effectively. In order to gain a competitive advantage, one big way you can choose is through on-demand manufacturing, which can accelerate the iteration of EV charging in several ways:
Rapid Prototyping:
Rapid prototyping is one of the on-demand manufacturing processes, which allows developers to test and refine their designs more rapidly, identify potential issues, and iterate on the product design quickly.
The flexibility of on-demand manufacturing ensures developers of EV charging solutions to respond quickly to market trends and feedback from customers, enabling faster iterations.
Supply Chain Efficiency:
Instead of manufacturing and storing a large number of charging units in advance, on-demand production is tailored for specific needs. This reduces the risk of overproduction, optimizing the use of resources and minimizing waste.
Faster Time-to-Market:
By eliminating the need for lengthy manufacturing lead times, on-demand manufacturing accelerates the time-to-market for EV charging solutions. This is especially crucial in the fast-paced EV industry, where companies strive to bring their products to market quickly to gain a competitive edge.
