Battery manufacturer Microvast will provide its MV-C Gen 4 HpCO lithium-ion battery packs to REE Automotive for use in REE’s P7 EV systems.
Microvast says its vertical integration and unique battery technology and cell chemistry combine to meet REE’s power, density, charging time and cycle life needs.
“Microvast’s MV-C Gen 4 battery pack is a great fit for REE,” said Microvast Holdings CRO Sascha Kelterborn. “It’s specifically designed to address the requirements of commercial vehicle fleets.”
Microvast’s high-energy HpCO 53.5 Ah pouch cells give the MV-C Gen 4 battery pack 27% more energy and power than its predecessor. Gen 4 battery packs should fulfill ECE R100.3, GB 38031 and UL2580 requirements.
“To market commercial vehicles powered by REE’s P7 platform, we are pleased to offer the flexible and high-tech capabilities of Microvast’s battery systems,” said REE CEO Daniel Barel. “Through this collaboration, customers such as fleet owners and delivery and logistics companies will benefit from REE’s commercial EVs, with long-lasting, fast-charging batteries.”
