The world’s first ‘intelligent’ electric vehicle battery bas been unveiled by European EV battery producer, InoBat Auto. The battery has been developed through a combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High Throughput (HTP) technology.
The new batteries will deliver an increase in operational range for current best-in-class electric vehicles of almost 20%. This technology also enables InoBat to reduce its dependence on cobalt and boost energy density to a goal of 330 Wh/kg and 1,000 Wh/I by the end of 2023.
The company is developing an AI-driven battery research centre and production line in Slovakia, which will begin producing its first intelligent batteries in 2021. InoBat is also progressing plans to build a EUR 1 billion 10 GWh Gigafactory with the potential to provide 240,000 EVs with cutting edge, bespoke batteries in 2025.
The battery launch follows the announcement that former CEO Aston Martin and COO of Nissan, Dr. Andy Palmer joined InoBat as Non-Executive Vice Chairman to drive the company’s vision for electrification forward.
Co-Founder and CEO of InoBat Auto, Marian Bocek, says: “It is with great pride that I can introduce the world to the first intelligent battery cell. InoBat is a world leader in battery cell innovation, and our vision to create the best batteries customised to meet the highest performance, safety and cost needs of electric vehicles is today a reality.”
He adds: “The world’s first intelligent battery marks a huge leap forward in the electrification of transport. At InoBat, we want to fast track innovation to ensure the best batteries for any type of electric vehicle. These batteries will be tested and developed further with scale production starting next year.”
InoBat recently announced it had secured additional EUR 10 million investment to fund the development of a R&D centre and production line in Slovakia. The funding was secured from CEZ Group, one of Europe’s largest energy companies
