Title:
ELECTRIC STORAGE MEANS
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2010173536
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:

To provide an electric storage means with a reduced number of parts of a battery pack installed in a vehicle.

A housing space for an electric storage module having the electric storage module 10 to which a plurality of electric storage elements are electrically connected is formed by a portion 40 of a vehicle body opposing a bottom face of the electric storage module and a case 20 fixed to the vehicle body and surrounding surfaces of the electric storage module except the bottom face. First and second cross members 91, 92 extending in a longitudinal direction of the vehicle on both sides of the electric storage module can be used. Each of the first and second cross members partially faces the housing space and has an inlet and an outlet allowing supply and exhaust of air to and from the electric storage module. Because the housing space for the electric storage module is formed using a part of the vehicle body, the number of parts of the electric storage means can be reduced, and a lower case used in a former battery pack can be omitted.
