Draxlmaier has established its first battery plant at a production facility in Sachsenheim near Stuttgart, Germany.

The Draxlmaier Group will start series production of the 800-volt complete battery system for the pure electrical Porsche Taycan this month.

“The mobility of the future is one of the greatest challenges of our time,” said Draxlmaier Group CTO, Martin Gall. “The automobile industry is going through an historically technological change and electromobility is an important megatrend.

The supplier’s first battery plant in Sachsenheim, will be a 100,000 sq foot production hall housing highly automated assembly lines to build the battery modules for the Taycan. Once the modules have been set up automatically, further parts are mounted before each battery will undergo a series of tests.

In addition to the battery production, the site also includes a development office for battery systems

The Draxlmaier Group develops and produces vehicle-specific, individually configurable, high-voltage battery systems and individual components for high-voltage storage. The Draxlmaier-made E-module includes all vital components, from charging sockets and HV electrical wiring systems, up to a variety of electronic parts that all provide intelligent measuring, distribution and protection, as well as reliable contacting.

As with its other products, all battery system solutions are produced in-house at Draxlmaier, from development to production.
