TORONTO — Electrovaya Inc. announces the launch of its electric bus lithium ion battery system with the delivery of a 700V, 300kWh battery. This product launch marks Electrovaya’s entry into the rapidly growing electric bus market.

This development was supported by Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC). In 2017, SDTC had signed a C$3.8 million R&D contract with Electrovaya to develop safe and long-lasting lithium ion ceramic batteries for electric buses.

“Electrovaya is a great example of how Canadian entrepreneurs are leading the way in developing solutions that Canada and the world needs,” said SDTC President and CEO Leah Lawrence. “By expanding their offering of lithium ion battery solutions to the electric bus supply chain, the team at Electrovaya is helping to make our transportation systems more sustainable and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

“We are delighted to enter this market with our strong and unique product offering,” said Dr. Raj Das Gupta, Chief Operating Officer of Electrovaya. “Electrovaya has spent considerable time and effort to develop a solution that meets the demanding application requirements of electric buses. Our technology has a unique blend of cycle life, safety, energy, and power performance that are ideal for this application. We expect to replicate the success Electrovaya has achieved in the materials handling industry, in this emerging electric bus sector.”
