Not only average battery capacity, but also power output is growing.
According to Adamas Intelligence, in December 2019, the global average of total output in new xEVs was 158.4 kW - 14% more than a year earlier (138.8 kW).
"This increase was driven in large part by strong sales of high-powered BEV models, such as the Tesla Model 3, GAC Aion S, Audi e-Tron Quattro and Nio ES6."
Interesting is data about the sales-weighted average power output by traction motor type as of December 2019:
- induction motor: 193.0 kW
- permanent magnet synchronous motor (and other permanent magnet types we guess): 101.1 kW
- externally excited synchronous motor: 73.7 kW
Adamas Intelligence further explains that in case of permanent magnet synchronous motor "...in general, motor power is a function of the mass (and grade) of neodymium-iron-boron (“NdFeB”) magnet used". It gives us glimpses of the upcoming demand for NdFeB.
