China-based, Svolt Energy Technology is partnering with Stellantis to provide the automaker with lithium-ion batteries from 2025.

Svolt will provide Stellantis with a product portfolio, from battery cells and high-voltage storage options to battery management systems.

For the order, Svolt will use its production capacities in China and future production capacities in Europe.

With the partnership, Svolt will be part of Stellantis’ global EV battery sourcing strategy of more than 130 GWh by 2025 and 260 GWh by 2030. Stellantis will use two battery chemistries to support various customer needs: a high energy-density option and a nickel cobalt-free alternative.

“We are very pleased to have won such a renowned customer like Stellantis for our high-quality lithium-ion batteries and battery systems and to be able to supply them with batteries in the future,” said Svolt Europe VP Sales & Marketing, Maxim Hantsch-Kramskoj.

On 8 July, 2021, Stellantis presented an electrification strategy for the company’s brands at its EV Day 2021.

The strategy is based on four BEV-by-design platforms with ranges of 500-800 km/300-500 miles, scalable family of three electric drive modules and standardised battery packs to cover all brands and segments.
