Battery-Cover Assembly

This 1-piece, compression-molded battery-cover assembly in sheet-molding compound (SMC) covers and seals the battery packs as received and is designed to protect the batteries and maintain a hermetic seal even in the event of a severe crash.  Special low/mid density SMC was developed for this application, saving an estimated 1.13 kg vs. standard SMC.  The part also features installed hardware seals, a reflective foil covering, and 73 openings to fasten the cover to the battery tray on this electric vehicle.
