Envision AESC, a Chinese battery technology company, released the new-generation Gen5-811 AIoT battery at the 18th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition on April 17.
Passing a number of safety tests, the battery will have a high energy density of approximate 300 Wh/kg. It is expected to provide a high safety, high energy density, high durability and cost-effective battery to more than 400,000 new energy vehicles worldwide each year in the future.
Mass-production will be performed at Envision AESC Wuxi Plant in 2020, with a total annual production capacity of 20GWh.
“Our batteries boast a superb safety and quality record. To date, our lithium-ion batteries manufactured in Japan, the US, and Europe have been installed in over 430,000 electric vehicles with a zero critical malfunction such as catching fire,” said Shoichi Matsumoto, Chief Executive Officer of Envision AESC Group.
Envision AESC relies on a complete R&D system and years of solid core technology to significantly improve batteries in terms of safety, performance, cost and longevity.
A powerful module design system is also vital to achieve adaptation to various battery pack sizes and different installations. The powerful module design capabilities helped to produce the new battery pack in the 2018 Nissan LEAF with capacity increased by 50 percent.
In April 2019, Envision Group announced its battery industry fund, Envision AESC, by completing the acquisition of AESC. Envision Group currently has the world’s leading AIoT operating system EnOSTM, and long-term accumulated experience in AI and IoT. In the future, Envision Group will fully empower Envision AESC to further optimize the management of the battery life cycle, and realize intelligent battery control in terms of R&D, production, installation, recycling, and comprehensively manage battery status and fault alarms.
