There have been debates regarding the pollution caused during the manufacturing of batteries for Electric Vehicles. For instance, some studies seem to suggest that the life-cycle emissions (including battery manufacturing) of an electric vehicle barely helps in reducing carbon emissions.
Spanning a planned area of 3,000 acres (2 million square metres), it has five cutting-edge workshops including stamping, welding, painting, final assembly, and battery pack production.
Coupled with StarPower's power module technology, the use of Cree's silicon carbide-based MOSFET in the powertrain will help extend driving range while lowering weight and conserving space.
In 2019, the Mitsubishi Outlander proved to be the top electric vehicle by fleet size (41,265) The fact that this SUV had out-sold smaller, more traditional electric vehicles, such as the Nissan Leaf, proves the impressive rise of the electric SUV.

HPS EnduraCoil is a high-performance cast resin transformer designed for many demanding and diverse applications while minimizing both installation and maintenance costs. Coils are formed with mineral-filled epoxy, reinforced with fiberglass and cast to provide complete void-free resin impregnation throughout the entire insulation system. HPS EnduraCoil complies with the new NRCan 2019 and DOE 2016 efficiency regulations and is approved by both UL and CSA standards. It is also seismic qualified per IBC 2012/ASCE 7-10/CBC 2013. Cast resin transformers are self-extinguishing in the unlikely event of fire, environmentally friendly and offer greater resistance to short circuits. HPS also offers wide range of accessories for transformer protection and monitoring requirements.
