Eviation and Kokam announce electric aircraft battery supply deal

Eviation Aircraft, a manufacturer of electric aircraft (profiled in the July/August 2017 issue of Charged), and South Korean battery manufacturer Kokam have entered into a battery supply deal valued at $1 million. Kokam batteries will be used to power EViation’s all-electric Alice aircraft, which is scheduled to fly by the end of this year.

Alice, which made its debut at the Paris Air Show last June, uses a 900 kWh battery pack provided by Kokam, and will be capable of carrying up to 9 passengers up to 650 miles.

Kokam’s battery solutions feature specific energy of 260 Wh/kg, and have been used in aerial, ground and underwater drone applications.
