Toshiba to supply LTO battery cells for EVage commercial vans


Toshiba India has secured a deal to supply its SCiB rechargeable lithium-ion cells to power the next 10,000 EVage electric commercial vehicles.

EVage supplies electric vans to global companies like Amazon and India’s logistics company, Delhivery, among others. It has become the first in the world to use Toshiba’s SCiB technology for delivery vans.

“This partnership [on Toshiba Li-ion cell supply] follows two years of development and joint validation to incorporate these cells into EVage’s proprietary ultra-stable and rapid charging battery packs,” read a joint statement by the two companies.

The SCiB rechargeable battery uses lithium titanium oxide (LTO) in its anode to achieve a long life of over 20,000 charge/discharge cycles, rapid charging, high input/output performance, excellent low-temperature performance, and wide SOC range, all while maintaining a high level of safety.

EVage battery packs using Toshiba’s SCiB cells will be safe for full operation to 65°C and extremely tolerant to impacts with low risk of thermal runaway. Further, these can recharge fully in 20 minutes.

“The agreement with Toshiba guarantees availability of enough cells in 2023 and to meet EVage’s aggressive production ramp-up and fulfilment of the thousands of existing reservations for its delivery vans in India,” stated EVage. “The partnership with Toshiba India also ensures EVage will meet its cost and margin targets.”
