Omega Seiki announced that it has partnered with C4V, a li-ion battery performance insight processing company based in New York, to bring solid-state batteries into the electric vehicles market in India. The two companies are also reportedly looking at the manufacturing of solid-state batteries in the country.
As per the contract, C4V will initially be supplying bio-mineralised lithium mixed metal phosphate batteries (BM-LMP) to Omega Seiki, which would be used in Omega Seiki’s EV range. Eventually, C4V plans to produce solid-state batteries with 400Wh/kg energy density in India to cater to EV and renewable markets, Omega Seiki said.
Omega Seiki Mobility Chairman Uday Narang said, “Omega Seiki is all set to revolutionise the electric vehicle market in India with these new C4V batteries. Not only are they environmentally friendly but also have a higher energy density, allowing our vehicles to go the extra mile. We believe in offering our consumers the best and with solid-state batteries, the latest in battery technology available globally.”
On introducing thermally stable solid-state batteries for the first time in the country, C4V Founder Shailesh Upreti said, “Extensive R&D and the last 10 years of development work is going to help us pioneer cell manufacturing in the Indian market. The country certainly requires best in class technology for domestic battery manufacturing and we are very excited and proud to bring this to India.”
“Our manufacturing platform is highly compatible with countries yet to develop cell manufacturing supply chains. We are looking at a modest speed scale up to the target 5GW in three years from now,” he added.
