Lithium Ion SuperPolymer® High-Performance Battery for Ultra-Safe, Long-Range ZEVs, HEVs, and PHEVs
AbstractElectrovaya’s Lithium Ion SuperPolymer® based battery is a cost-effective solution for long-range, ultrasafe zero-emission (battery electric) and low-emission (plug-in hybrid) vehicles. Optimized for transportation, Electrovaya has developed fully integrated power system solutions with large-format cells, large-format modules, and integrated an intelligent battery management system for safe and effective scale-up. Electrovaya’s proprietary SuperPolymer® technology is independent of the composition of the positive electrode active material and so multiple chemistry solutions are available, including the MN-Series, a Lithiated Manganese Oxide based system, with up to 50% higher energy density and comparable safety characteristics to Electrovaya’s Phosphate-Series solution.
This paper details the design approach and recent test results of Electrovaya’s solutions for (1) plug-in hybrids, with its program with New York State on a Ford Escape platform; (2) passenger vehicles, as demonstrated in a 30kWh ZEV in Norway; (3) fleet vehicles, such as an 80kWh delivery vehicle in partnership with Unicell, Purolator and the Canadian Government; and (4) off-road vehicles, such as its project with New York State Parks.
Electrovaya’s scalable power train solution is easily tailored to the demands of passenger, fleet, off-road, and heavy-duty applications. This solution is cost-competitive to ICE-based vehicles and superior in performance, safety and operating cost. Electrovaya’s SuperPolymer® technology gives superior safety and performance and is exceptionally suited to large format systems necessary for transportation applications.
