Cummins Invests in Sion Power to Develop Licerion® Lithium Metal Battery Technology for Commercial Electric Vehicle Applications
Sion Power, a leading developer of next-generation rechargeable batteries, has entered into an agreement with Cummins, a global leader in the development of powertrains and powertrain-related components, to design and supply battery cells based on its proprietary Licerion® Electric Vehicle (EV) lithium metal technology for commercial electric vehicle applications. In connection with the agreement, Cummins has made an investment in Sion Power.
Under the agreement, Sion Power will engage in a multi-year development program to design and supply large-format lithium metal battery cells for use in Cummins battery packs. The batteries developed by Cummins will be integrated in its electric powertrains for commercial vehicles.
Sion Power’s Chief Executive Officer, Tracy Kelley, said, “Sion Power’s Licerion® is an enabling technology for the Cummins’ future electric commercial vehicle offerings. Cummins is an ideal partner for Sion Power to enable this next generation of electric mobility and significantly support the decarbonization of the transportation industry.”
