UK: Axeon-led project develops new electric car battery

Battery manufacturer Axeon, along with partners Ricardo and Allied Vehicles, and co-funded by the Technology Strategy Board have been successful in developing a new battery which promises to improve range by as much as 35% compared to existing technologies, for the same weight.

Back in 2009, the Technology Strategy Board handed over £680k of funding for the project to develop a high energy density battery system. The resulting battery uses Nickel Cobalt Manganese (NCM) which theoretically requires 50% less volume and 30% less mass compared to conventional Lithium Iron Phosphate cells.
