ALTe, A123 Supply Agreement Supports Hybrid Electric Powertrain

ALTe has signed a long-term supply agreement with A123 Systems for complete lithium-ion battery packs to be integrated into ALTe's range-extended hybrid electric powertrain systems.

Built on A123's Nanophosphate technology, the 21.6 kWh packs are designed to deliver high power, greater usable energy, long life and increased safety, the companies say. The packs will be matched with a four-cylinder engine, electric motors and proprietary controls modules to increase fuel economy by up to 200%.

The ALTe powertrain is targeted toward the light truck market (including full-size pickups and vans), with a focus on commercial, government and utility fleets.
