EVs face battery weight challenge
The design language of electric vehicles (EVs) will be different from the prevailing designs. EVs will have a clean, minimalistic look even as accommodating the battery would be a challenge, C. V. Raman, senior executive director (engineering, product and design) of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd, told The Telegraph on the sidelines of the recently held auto expo.
"EVs will look different mainly because it will have a different powertrain than ICEs (internal combustion engines). So, the design will allow a lot of seamless, clean surfaces. What will dictate the design in EVs will be the battery size and the challenge will be how to fit it in," said Raman.
