Growing concerns over carbon emission have lately sparked worldwide interest in more efficient and cleaner transportation systems. Industrialization is increasing exponentially, making energy resources the primary concern of every nation of the globe. Non-renewable sources are on the verge of being extinct, and carbon emissions are becoming a trigger for global extinction. One such effort of reducing the concern is a shift of the automobile industry from a combustion powertrain to the electric counterpart. Challenges accompanied by the electric powertrain include humongous size, reduced safety and sophisticated electronics involved in the electric powertrain relative to the combustion powertrain for the same amount of energy. This paper explores the use of electric powertrain, particularly the battery pack and the accumulator of a Formula Student electric race car. It has also highlighted the intricate design of an accumulator container for a Formula Student electric car.
