Axeon to Provide Lithium Batteries for Citroen C1 EV'ie
Dundee-based Axeon, Europe’s largest independent lithium-ion battery systems supplier, has received the nod to develop a high capacity battery system for the electric Citroen C1 ev’ie.
The vehicle, which is manufactured by the UK-based Electric Car Corporation, has a range of more than 60 miles and a top speed of 60mph. Now it will receive a pre-production battery pack that combines an advanced battery with an energy density of 230Wh/kg with improved performance and extended range in a smaller package. At the heart of the system is Axeon’s proprietary battery management system.
Axeon could now supply between 300 and 500 units in the 12 months following a successful trial. It is already the UK’s market leader in large commercial vehicle battery technology with batteries that have a range of up to 140miles on a single charge with stored capacity ranging from 5kWh to 180kWh.
