Rimac Technology, a business unit of EV-maker Rimac that provides technology solutions to global OEMs, has partnered with EVE Energy, a manufacturer of lithium batteries, to manufacture battery cells in Europe starting in 2027. EVE will focus on cell manufacturing, and Rimac Technology will focus on the development and high-volume production of a battery module and pack platform using the cells.
The battery cells will be used for Rimac Technology’s 46xx platform. Rimac says it has “a series of nominations for large-volume projects with large European OEMs that will use this platform.”
Rimac says its 46xx platform solution offers class-leading energy density, customizable cell-to-pack solutions, and an advanced battery management system. The 46xx cylindrical cells are aligned with evolving regulations regarding thermal propagation, because the cylindrical format lends itself to optimal thermal management.
“EVE Energy is one of the largest primary lithium battery manufacturers worldwide and brings a lot of experience in battery cell technology to this partnership,” said Rimac Group founder and CEO Mate Rimac. “This collaboration secures a long-term reliable partner for our 46XX platform.”
