The growing focus on electric and hybrid vehicles is driving the development of thousands of innovative tech ideas, many of which tend to get buried in the more glitzy buzz around EVs and hybrid cars. A lot of those behind-the-scenes innovations will take center stage at the upcoming national Battery Show, being held in Novi, Michigan, September 10 – 12, which will also feature the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo.
- National Battery Show to draw more than 650 EV and hybrid tech companies and suppliers.
- Huber + Suhner will display its groundbreaking high-power, 15-mintue charging system at show.
- The Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo will also showcase tech from suppliers like Dow Chemical, Delta-Q Technologies and Wieland.

Show and tell
Electric vehicle and hybrid tech companies from around the world will converge in Michigan Sept. 10 – 12, for the Battery Show and Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, an event highlighting some of the latest tech in the EV space.
The three-day event, being held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, located on the outskirts of Detroit, is expected to draw over 650 tech companies, including General Motors, Ford and suppliers like Huber + Suhner, which will showcase its record-breaking Radox High Power Charging (HPC) system.
The Huber + Suhner electric vehicle system reduces EV charging time to less than 15 minutes for an 80% charge, with the help of an integrated cooling system that offers a much smaller cable cross section in comparison to the more traditional high-powered cables, according to the Huber + Suhner press release.
Other electric vehicle suppliers like Delta Q-Technologies, Dow Chemical and Wieland, which makes an electron beam welded copper-manganese strip that enables higher-precision measurements of the charging status of a battery, will also have displays at the expo.
WHY THIS MATTERS
Some of the biggest hurdles for electric vehicles lie in consumer concerns about some of the limitations of the technology, most notably driving range and the time it takes to charge an EV. Events like the Battery Show, which highlights technology like Huber + Suhner’s High Power Charging system, helps to drive further advancements in the space, while also helping to boost consumer confidence in EVs.
