Toronto, Ontario -- Electrovaya Inc. (TSX: EFL) today announced that Chrysler’s Ram Truck Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV), equipped with Electrovaya's 12 kWh Lithium Ion SuperPolymer® Battery System , is being showcased in public for the first time at the Washington D.C. Auto Show Jan 27 – Feb 6, 2011.

Electrovaya was selected by Chrysler as a key supplier partner for the RAM Plug-in Hybrid development, which was initiated last year as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act DOE Vehicle Electrification Program. The RAM Truck is one of Chrysler’s top selling vehicles and the Plug-in Hybrid Electric version (powered by both battery and gasoline) is a full-size truck with Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions capability and is able to travel up to 20 miles on electricity only. Delivery of the PHEV Ram trucks is expected to begin this summer.

“Electrovaya’s battery system not only provides exceptional performance from a high energy and power perspective, but boasts a clean manufacturing process that will appeal to environmentally conscious consumers,” notes Bruce Coventry, Vice President of Operations at Electrovaya. “The superior energy density of the Electrovaya technology also allows for a small battery footprint in the vehicle while delivering high performance.”

Electrovaya's 12 kWh Lithium Ion SuperPolymer® Battery System features the company’s proprietary battery technology, battery management system and complete mechanical, thermal, electrical and electronic subsystems. Electrovaya’s battery technology is manufactured in North America and is uniquely distinguished by its clean, non-toxic manufacturing process supported by over 150 patents.
