Renon India launches swappable battery pack for e-2Ws – ET Auto
The new pack has a nominal voltage of 57.6 V and a rated energy of 2.04 kWh. It is also water and dust resistant, with an IP-67 rating.
New Delhi: Energy storage startup Renon on Wednesday said it has launched swappable smart batteries, Groot, for electric two wheelers.
The Li-ion battery pack for low and medium speed EVs is built with NMC chemistry. The Surat-based company aims to meet the requirements of high energy density and peak power needs by using phase change material for thermal management with this pack, it said.
The new pack has a nominal voltage of 57.6 V and a rated energy of 2.04 kWh. It is also water and dust resistant, with an IP-67 rating. The thermally optimized battery packs have a clear advantage with their smart configurable battery management system and integrated display for SOC and SOH algorithms for reliable data collection and range estimation. Overall, Groot is extremely reliable, safe, and built to withstand Indian driving conditions.
Aditya Vikram, MD and CEO, Renon India, said, “We are excited to introduce Groot as the next-gen e-mobility solution for India. Renon sees the launch of this E2W Li battery platform as a step forward toward our larger goal. We intend to make further revolutions in the sector to build a strong and sustainable energy storage system in the country.”
Founded in 2019, the company expects to reach over 500 MWh manufacturing line capacity milestone in the near future, with production technology that can manufacture over 3000 packs a month. It aims to clock INR 40 crore revenue by the end of this financial year.
“Effective October 1, 2022, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India will increase prices by up to 2% across its product portfolio owing to rising input costs,” a company spokesperson said.
Conflicts have stemmed in part from different views among carmakers, suppliers and tech firms over who should shoulder the cost of licensing.
