Enpower Greentech developed an A-Sample battery pack that was designed for class-1 commercial EV customers. The module utilizes Enpower Greentech’s energy-dense semi-solid state “Swift” batteries, which contain less liquid electrolyte, making it a safer and lighter chemistry choice for e-mobility when compared to other lithium-ion batteries commonly found in use today, Enpower said.
“Range anxiety is at the forefront of everyone’s mind,” Dr. Yong Che, CTO and co-founder at Enpower Greentech said. “We know that our EV partners need their vehicles to stay on the road longer with cargo fleets that reach final destinations every time. This is why safety and energy density are the dual-driving forces that push our R&D teams forward.”
The 72kWh Swift EV pack was delivered to Ann Arbor, MI, in December 2023. The class-1 EV in focus had previously utilized other commonly used batteries for a 110-mile estimated range, the company said. The Swift EV pack increased that estimate to 190 miles under the same dimensional constraint while passing multiple tests that will lead to B-Samples. The Swift battery has been in full commercial production since early November 2023.
