Electrovaya delivers next-gen prototype battery packs to Dongfeng Motors; 20% greater capacity
10 April 2014
Electrovaya Inc. has delivered its next generation of prototype battery packs to Dongfeng Motors (DFM) in China. DFM, a leading Chinese automaker, is embarked on an electric vehicle program which includes two electric vehicle platforms. The Electrovaya battery design enables the same Electrovaya battery to fit both the 2-door and 4-door electric vehicle platforms from DFM.
Due to ongoing improvements in the cell manufacturing process, this battery has about 20% increased capacity and performance over Electrovaya’s previous DFM prototypes. The battery uses Electrovaya’s proprietary unique non-toxic manufacturing process.
Electrovaya’s Lithium Ion SuperPolymer 2.0 battery consists of high energy density cells and Battery Management System (BMS) along with sub-assemblies of mechanical, thermal, electrical and electronics.
