AMTE Power and Mahle sign battery supply MoU

LinkedIn +

UK-based commercial battery cell manufacturer AMTE Power has signed an MOU with Mahle Powertrain (MPT), the engineering services subsidiary of Mahle Group. The non-binding MoU lays the foundation for the supply of AMTE’s Ultra High Power (UHP) cells to support the development of next-generation electric vehicles.

The partnership will facilitate testing of AMTE Power’s UHP cells in MPT’s recently opened Battery Development Centre in Northampton. This will enable MPT to develop powertrain concepts for the next era of high-performance electric cars and help address the automotive industry bottleneck in battery testing.

AMTE Power’s differentiated cells are specifically designed to solve key challenges for high-performance electric vehicles (EVs), balancing power, weight and safety needs. The group’s lithium-ion UHP cell provides rapid charging and discharging times. All of AMTE Power’s cells are made in the UK, guaranteeing security of supply and helping MPT’s EV customers comply with emerging rules of origin legislation.

Kevin Brundish, CEO of AMTE Power, said, “This first step toward a commercial partnership with MPT builds on a number of recent MoUs that we’ve agreed in the automotive sector. We’re generating real momentum in the market as more customers recognize the value of our differentiated cell technology. This is an important step in our pathway toward commercialization and we are looking forward to working with MPT to unlock the next generation of high-performance vehicles.”
