Incorporating a liquid thermal management system, state-of-the-art electronics and proven NMC cell technology, FLEX battery modules offer a high level of reliability and safety, providing vehicle manufacturers with a comprehensive guarantee.
Batteries, an essential source of energy for heavy electric vehicles
The importance of battery power for heavy electric vehicles
Batteries play a crucial role in powering heavy electric vehicles. Unlike traditional internal combustion engine vehicles, these vehicles move thanks to the electricity stored in their batteries. The batteries provide the energy needed to power the electric motors, enabling heavy-duty vehicles to move with power and efficiency.
Lithium-ion batteries are the most commonly used in heavy-duty electric vehicles because of their high energy density, low weight and ability to deliver constant power over long distances.
What’s more, the batteries can be recharged using renewable energy sources, making heavy-duty electric vehicles even more environmentally friendly.
In addition to energy, power is another essential factor in heavy electric vehicles. Vehicles of this type require batteries capable of delivering high power to start up quickly and carry heavy loads. The latest advances in battery technology have considerably increased the power available to these vehicles.
High voltage and high discharge current batteries have been developed to meet these specific needs. By increasing battery power, heavy-duty electric vehicles become more powerful, offering rapid acceleration and improved towing capacity.
These advances pave the way for the widespread adoption of heavy-duty electric vehicles in the transport and logistics sectors.
