Germany-based Akasol is manufacturing lithium-ion battery systems for Daimler subsidiary EvoBus. The leading European bus manufacturer plans to launch its new electric Citaro bus (earlier post) at the IAA Commercial Vehicles event in September. These buses will be fitted with up to ten of Akasol’s AKASYSTEM OEM battery packs (max. 243 kWh). The technology combines high demands on performance charging and discharging, energy density and lifespan. Series manufacturing of the Citaro electric bus starts this year.

We’re working on this together with Akasol’s experts. Based on the specifications we have developed to-gether, they manufacture battery systems for us with cells from Samsung. The batteries are being tempered at about 25°C. With this we expect maximum charging capacity, performance and lifetime. —Gustav Tuschen, Head of Product Engineering Daimler Buses and a member of the EvoBus management team

Akasol opened a series production plant for commercial vehicle battery systems in Langen (Hessen, Germany) in autumn 2017. The facility has a yearly capacity of up to 300 megawatt hours. Akasol believes that this is currently Europe’s largest production plant for commercial vehicle lithium-ion battery systems.
