The battery tray of an electric vehicle plays a central role, as it contains the battery, the heart of a purely electric or hybrid vehicle. In addition to the obvious task of enclosing and supporting the battery cells, safety-related requirements combined with weight and cost optimization pose the greatest challenge. Welded or die-cast aluminum trays are the method of choice because they can be mass-produced cost-effectively with low weight and high strength. Aluminum is also nearly 100% recyclable, underscoring the sustainable solution of e-mobility.
Battery trays for purely electrically powered vehicles (BEV = battery electric vehicles) are assembled and welded from individual extruded profiles, with these trays usually already constituting the complete vehicle floor.
