Urban Commercial Vehicle Electrification

On 29th July 2021, MVST reported that they will collaborate to create cutting-edge battery solutions to electrify eVersum’s existing and future lines of entirely “eBorn” electric vehicles. The eVersum eShuttle, which is the manifestation of a 21st-century electric vehicle that seeks to create its own unique category in the electric shuttle bus market, will be equipped with a newly designed battery system. Moreover, eShuttles are modularly constructed and can carry 15 to 50 passengers comfortably for a range of purposes at a low cost.

Key factors and a desire to cooperate with a manufacturer that offers a high degree of vertical integration drove eVersum to choose MVST as its major battery partner. Cathode and anode materials, electrolyte, and membrane separators, unique cell manufacturing, and web applications and services like battery management systems (BMS) and other power electronics are all examples of such capabilities. Using a range of cell chemistries, ranging from NMC to LFP to LTO, allows the company to achieve maximum flexibility while using the same physical battery packs, with the ability to link them adaptively in series or parallel to obtain the desired voltage and energy levels.
