Thermal issues of lithium-ion batteries for automotive application are key factors affecting the performance, safety, life and cost of electric vehicles. In this work, the thermal management systems of three typical electric vehicles were analyzed to identify the importance of the thermal design for the single batteries. Special attention was paid to the review of the thermal modeling, which served as the fundamental method for the thermal design. Finally, the directions for further researches on the thermal modeling and thermal design were summarized.
