Continental’s Powertrain Division has expanded its Li-ion battery portfolio to support power requirements of up to 120 kW with a capacity of up to 18 kWh.
Continental Automotive is beginning series production of automotive lithium-ion packs this year, and is a development partner with VW and Daimler.
Continental, along with its project partner A123Systems, is also providing one of the Li-ion packs currently under consideration for the Chevy Volt. That pack is a 16 kWh unit. (Earlier post.)
