Electrovaya’s Next Generation Battery Packs to be used for Dongfeng’s Electric Vehicle Program

Electrovaya Inc. announced that it has delivered its next generation of prototype battery packs to Dongfeng Motors (DFM) in China. DFM, a leading Chinese automaker, is embarked on a major electric vehicle program, which includes two electric vehicle platforms.

Electrovaya's Lithium Ion SuperPolymer ® 2.0 battery consists of high energy density cells and Battery Management System (BMS) along with sub-assemblies of mechanical, thermal, electrical and electronics.

The Electrovaya battery design enables the same Electrovaya battery to fit both the 2-door and 4-door electric vehicle platforms from DFM. Due to ongoing improvements in the cell manufacturing process, this battery has about 20% increased capacity and performance over Electrovaya's previous DFM prototypes. The battery uses Electrovaya's proprietary unique non-toxic manufacturing process.

"DFM is one of China's largest automakers," says Joseph Chao, Electrovaya's Senior Consultant for the Chinese electric vehicle market. "This is a critical contract for both groups. DFM presently manufacturers over 3.5 million vehicles in China and its electric vehicle program has the potential to become one of the major players in the Chinese and Global markets," said Mr. Chao.

"We are encouraged by our leading edge performance in this category and excited to work with DFM on their massive electric vehicle program," said Dr. Rajshekar Das Gupta, Vice-President of Business Development, Electrovaya.
