From 2025 onwards, Stellantis will also source its lithium-ion batteries from SVOLT. SVOLT will provide Stellantis with a broad product portfolio for this purpose, from battery cells and high-voltage storage systems to battery management systems. For the order, SVOLT will use its production capacities in China and future production capacities in Europe. With the partnership, SVOLT is part of Stellantis’ global EV battery sourcing strategy of more than 130 GWh by 2025 and 260 GWh by 2030. Stellantis will use two battery chemistries to support various customer needs: a high energy-density option and a nickel cobalt-free alternative.
“We are very pleased to have won such a renowned customer like Stellantis for our high-quality lithium-ion batteries and battery systems and to be able to supply them with batteries in the future,” explains Maxim Hantsch-Kramskoj, Vice President Sales & Marketing SVOLT Europe.
