  • Patent number: 10207574
    Abstract: A motor vehicle includes side sills that are disposed in pairs on the right and left sides of the motor vehicle and that has bag-shaped cross-sections when viewed from the front of the motor vehicle and a floor panel that constitutes bottoms of at least a passenger compartment and that is coupled to the side sills. The motor vehicle further includes a battery panel that is disposed below the floor panel so as to support batteries and that is coupled to the side sills and a battery movement allowance mechanism that allows movement of the batteries toward the inside of the side sills when the batteries are moved to one side in a vehicle-width direction and, consequently, a load from the batteries is applied to the side sills.

  • Patent number: 9985258
    Abstract: An onboard battery includes an accommodation case that has an upper accommodation unit and a lower accommodation unit positioned below the upper accommodation unit battery modules each having battery cells, and joints that couple the upper accommodation unit and the lower accommodation unit to each other. At least one battery module is accommodated in each of the upper accommodation unit and the lower accommodation unit. When a predetermined load or more is applied to the upper accommodation unit, a stress acts on the joints such that the upper accommodation unit and the lower accommodation unit are separated from each other, and the upper accommodation unit is moved away from the lower accommodation unit.
