As India is gearing up to expand its Electric Vehicle industry, large and small companies are tapping into the opportunity to make the best use out of this exploration by the Indian Government and customers. There are all kinds of developments happening, starting from EV manufacturing to EV charging station installation, in order to turn India into a nation with a majority of Electric vehicles. As we all know, the battery is the most significant component of an EV and contributes to the majority of the cost. Here are some top EV battery manufacturers in India.
Lithium-ion EV Battery Manufacturers in India
- Amara Raja Batteries
Okaya offers high-performance Lithium ION battery packs for EV & Smart Mobility. Their batteries are designed with Intelligent BMS (Battery Management System) based on Lithium-Ion Chemistry and are environment friendly along with a promise of a long life. They are committed to firm quality controls at various stages of production before the products reach the customers.
Lithium batteries by Okaya have a number of unique features like longevity, enhanced energy density, better safety along a more efficient size. The batteries are also economical, have high charging speed, and are integrated with high precision Protection Circuit Board (PCB).
Coslight group produces lithium-ion batteries of three types, namely, square liquid batteries, polymer li-ion batteries, and iron lithium batteries. The square liquid lithium batteries are used in cell phones and the polymer li-ion batteries are used in small electronic products. Lithium iron phosphate batteries are used in electric bicycles, electric vehicles, and back-up power.
Coslight polymer/prismatic lithium-ion battery is one of the rechargeable battery types. The basic working principle is that the lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging. The batteries ensure long cycle life, lightweight, high energy density, and a low self – discharge rate.
Luminous is a well-renowned manufacturer of batteries and electric appliances like UPS systems, inverters, stabilizers, etc. The company has seven manufacturing units, over 28 sales offices in India, and has operations in 36 countries. Luminous also offers Li-ion batteries, which is the future of electric mobility in India.
EV batteries from Luminous are manufactured with the Advanced Silver alloy technology which leads to increased battery performance and longer life.
Exide is a leading name among auto battery manufacturers in India. Exide became a part of a joint venture with France-based Leclanché to build lithium-ion batteries, and provide energy storage systems for India’s electric vehicle market and grid-based applications.
The joint venture is going to focus on e-transport, stationary energy storage systems, and specialty storage markets. In terms of e-transport, the target segment is fleet vehicles including e-buses, e-two wheelers, and e-rickshaws.
Exicom makes state-of-the-art portable IP 67 batteries for E-Scooters, E-Bikes, and light electric vehicles. Cube batteries are designed smartly keeping in mind beauty and performance to ensure delivering power in harshest environments like heat, rain, sun, etc. The batteries are all weatherproof with IP67 certification. The high energy density of up to 223Wh/L and ergonomic design allows universal compatibility in most of the existing electric 2 wheelers and 3 wheelers and easy access for customers. Customers can enjoy easy charging or swapping experience.
The batteries have a High voltage (14S) architecture that enables better acceleration & increased mileage per cycle. While the intelligent charging algorithm leads to enhanced battery life, the batteries also ensure safety first with multi-level protection features.
Amara Raja Batteries
Amara Raja Batteries Limited (ARBL), the flagship company of the Amara Raja Group, is the technology leader and is one of the leading manufacturers of lead-acid batteries for industrial as well as automotive applications in India storage battery industry.
