Lightning Motorcycle can add 135 miles of range in 10 minutes

Enevate Corp. supplied "extreme fast charge" EV lithium-ion battery cells for Lightning's Strike Carbon motorcycle.

Enevate Corp. has partnered with Lightning Motorcycles to equip Lightning’s Strike Carbon motorcycle with Enevate’s EV “extreme fast charge” advanced lithium-ion cells. As part of product validation, Lightning integrated a 24-kWh battery pack with Enevate technology into the Strike Carbon e-motorcycle, resulting in a charge time of less than 10 minutes for an additional 135 miles, the companies say. The charging time for similar production electric motorcycles is usually 1-4 hours, the companies say.

The pack was assembled using 47Ah Enevate pouch cells that began sampling in the second quarter of 2022.

The Strike Carbon prototype equipped with Enevate battery technology has over 1,000 miles on the road while “refueling” at 350kW public charging stations, the companies say. The Lightning team led the system development and was able to integrate Enevate’s battery cells into the Strike Carbon platform to create the prototype. Lightning says its engineering team has been partnering with Enevate’s scientists and engineers since last year and have conducted numerous road tests.

Enevate says its XFC-Energy Technology allows more energy to be safely packed into a single cell. The company says its XFC-Energy silicon-dominant anode requires a fraction of the space of a graphite anode used in a conventional cell. In addition to EV performance benefits, Enevate says its silicon battery technology delivers up to 26% reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for manufacturing of EV batteries with Enevate’s XFC Energy technology compared to today’s conventional lithium-ion EV batteries (21% for NCA and 26% for NMC cells [kg CO2 eq. cradle-to-gate, per 1 KWh cell capacity]).
