TUCSON, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sion Power®, a technology leader in high-energy, lithium-metal rechargeable batteries, is introducing their Licerion® rechargeable battery for electric vehicles at The Battery Show North America in Novi, Michigan in September. The 17 Ah Licerion Electric Vehicle (EV) cell boasts over 400 Wh/kg and 810 Wh/L in a large-format pouch cell. The company has specifically designed Licerion-EV for next-generation electric vehicle applications, focusing on high energy density, increased cycle life, safety, and fast charging capability.
Unlike many start-up companies, Sion Power is backing Licerion technology with decades of research and development in rechargeable lithium-metal battery technology. The result is a full-scale cell that meets the requirements of next-generation automotive targets. In independent testing, 6 Ah Licerion-EV cells reached over 800 cycles, demonstrated fast charge capability (80% of charge in 15 minutes), excellent power capability, and safety.
“This is a watershed moment for Sion Power’s push toward next-generation electrified vehicles,” says Mr. Tracy Kelley, CEO of Sion Power. Mr. Kelley goes on to say, “I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished. Our Licerion-EV technology has demonstrated a blend of energy, safety, and electrical performance that is unmatched.
