Exponent Energy, Altigreen Propulsion ink partnership for fast charging battery capacity

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 03 Aug 2022


Exponent Energy has partnered with electric last mile connectivity player Altigreen Propulsion Labs. Through this partnership, they unveiled a fastest charging electric 3-wheeler that rapidly charges from 0-100 percent battery capacity within 15 minutes. The Exponent-enabled Altigreen neEV HD has an 8.19 kWh e^pack - a proprietary battery by Exponent. 

The company said that the vehicle delivers a city drive range of 80-85 kms and charges up in 15 minutes at Exponent’s e^pump network. This is achieved by the e^pump delivering 600A of current to the e^pack while managing individual cell characteristics including thermals to ensure safety, long battery life, and performance consistency even at 50 degrees Celsius.

Amitabh Saran, Founder and CEO, Altigreen Propulsion Labs, said, “At Altigreen, we are constantly looking to push the boundaries of innovation for both vehicles and technology. This partnership with Exponent will now make us the fastest charging 3-wheeler that offers flexibility and freedom to our customers, and helps them earn even more.”

With a fresh round of Rs 300 crore investment led by Sixth Sense Ventures, Reliance New Energy, Xponentia Capital, and others, Altigreen is aggressively ramping up its R&D and production capabilities. The same will be used to offer the benefits of Exponent’s 15-minute rapid charging across India.

Arun Vinayak, Co-founder & CEO, Exponent Energy said, “Our e^pack and  e^pump make this possible with 15-minute rapid charging and 3000 cycle life warranty. By being cell agnostic, we can leverage the existing manufacturing ecosystem that produces LFP and NMC cells extensively, and scale much faster.”
