With EV technology playing an increasingly role in the automotive sector, the LION – SOGEFI partnership will leverage both companies capabilities to address the challenge of electrification. The “Light Battery” and Battery Management System (BMS) of LION and the strong automotive skills and track record of SOGEFI will be a perfect set up to become a key partner to the OEMs.
The “Light Battery” is an innovative technical concept, composed of cylindrical cells, it combines high mechanical stability with equalizing effects over its lifetime. It is highly cost competitive and safe at high energy density and uses innovative cooling solutions. The current battery systems on the market require a compromise between modularity, integration and cost.
The “Light Battery” aims to fill this gap by using standardized building blocks of cells (“SuperCells”) consisting of cylindrical cells than can be configured into various module sizes to fit specific design spaces, battery capacities and voltage levels. This, combined with a highly effective direct thermal management system and an innovative single cell BMS approach, makes the “Light Battery” concept suitable for high performance (power output/fast charge) applications but also effective for the mass market.
