Some of my takeaways:
- Like Rivian, Rimac also found that axial cooling is superior to radial
- The different variables in evaluating battery tech, such as: gravimetric/volumetric energy density, power density, charge time, cycle life, calendar life, cost, safety
- Battery energy density hasn't increased a large amounts in the last 10 years (but cost has dropped)
- Mate Rimac (founder and CEO) doesn't believe there's much chance of a revolutionary battery change in the next few years
If you enjoyed that video, they've got some other good ones too, the inverter one for example.
