Testing Electric Cars, Hybrids at UK's Millbrook Proving Grounds
With an increasing public perception of the benefits of driving more economically and efficiently, the demands for electric and hybrid vehicles continues to grow. However, despite the obvious advantages, there remain some challenges with these new technologies, such as the driving range, weight and size of battery packs, and performance on inclines.
In order to address these challenges, manufacturers are working closely with Millbrook Proving Ground in the UK to comprehensively test and develop their vehicles to ensure reliability, safety, and that customer expectations are met.
We talk to Alastair Wynn, senior durability engineer at Millbrook, to get an insight into the specific requirements of durability testing for electric and hybrid vehicles, comparisons between new technologies and traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, and where testing crosses over.
