Now comes performance standards for EV batteries

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has brought  performance standards for batteries being used in electric vehicles, after the recurring incidents of fire.

  • BIS released standard test specifications for lithium-ion traction battery packs and systems (performance testing) for vehicles.
  • Standard IS 17855:2022 was created for these battery packs and systems has been harmonised with ISO 12405-4: 2018.
  • BIS is in process to publish two more standards for batteries, that will be used in electric goods and passenger carrying vehicles.

IS 17855:2022 standard

IS 17855:2022 standard is formulated after considering real-life scenarios for the electric vehicle, such as parked vehicle, battery running at low & high temperatures, and battery system shipped (stored).

Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles operate on rechargeable batteries and electric motor. Safety and performance are two critical aspects of these vehicles. 

Fire incidents in electric two-wheeler

Union Road Transport and highways Ministry has tasked the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), to investigating electric two-wheeler fire incidents. These defects occurred as electric two-wheeler manufacturers such as Pure EV, Jitendra Electric Vehicles, Okinawa Autotech, Boom Motors and Ola Electric may have used “lower-grade materials to cut costs”.
