Xindayang Selects Boston-Power to Supply Lithium-Ion Batteries Packs for High-Volume Production Vehicle
May 6 15
Boston-Power Inc. announced that it has reached an exclusive agreement with Shandong Xindayang Electric Vehicle Co. Ltd. to supply battery packs for its ZD low speed electric vehicle. The initial agreement is for Boston-Power to supply 30,000 ZD battery packs with a capacity of 18.4 kWh each. The cooperation between Boston-Power and Xindayang will help both companies further reach economies of scale to provide high-quality cost-competitive products to the market. Boston-Power has begun planned capacity expansions to reach 3 GWh at its Liyang factory and will be breaking ground on its new Tianjin factory which will reach 4 GWh and then 8 GWh in phases 1 and 2 respectively. Current investment for this expansion is estimated at $500 million. In addition to lithium-ion cell production expansion, Boston-Power will build an electric vehicle battery pack assembly plant in northwest China in Lanzhou which will be able to supply 40,000 packs per year for Xindayang's Eco-EV business. LSEVs typically have top speed of approximately 80kph or 48mph and are designed for local driving or as a second vehicle. Not usually counted in official automotive statistics, estimates are that at least one million LSEVs exist in China with potential 2015 sales to reach 600,000 vehicles; growing to a million in annual sales in the next 3-5 years. The Boston-Power high-energy density ZD battery pack will allow Xindayang to offer 2X the capacity of its current vehicle without changing the size of the pack enclosure; enabling a up to a 200km drive distance. Xindayang also expects to export the vehicles to over 10 countries including Italy, Spain and France.
