Sion Power, a leader in next-generation rechargeable batteries, has reached a major development milestone with its Licerion® Electric Vehicle (EV) technology, producing more than 18,000 multilayer, 6 Ah to 20 Ah lithium metal cells for commercial evaluation. Licerion EV represents a breakthrough in high energy density and specific energy which directly enables longer range with lighter and smaller batteries, attributes that resonate well in the eMobility space. This technology incorporates Sion Power’s protected lithium anode and utilizes an electrolyte composition optimized for fast charging applications. Moreover, Sion Power’s patented applied uniform pressure method ensures extended cycle life for these cells.
Sion Power’s 6 Ah large-format Licerion EV cell has exceeded 800 cycles and the 17 Ah cell has been independently verified at a specific energy of 400 Wh/kg and energy density of 780 Wh/L.
“We have more than just technology at Sion Power – we have a product to sample. Our team continues to advance our technology and increase the availability of cells so that Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can test and incorporate it into their designs. To date, we have produced a vast number of multilayer Lithium Metal cells for commercial evaluations which continue to exceed our stated technical specifications,” said Tracy Kelley, CEO of Sion Power.
Currently, these cells are undergoing evaluation by several EV OEMs and Sion Power has increased the supply of commercially available 17 Ah cells for additional testing. Additionally, Sion Power is currently taking preorders for the Licerion EV 56 Ah automotive B-sample cell with anticipated availability in late 2024.
