Ola Electric

Battery Cell Manufacturing In India, Types & Future Plans

India’s biggest EV manufacturer, as they unveil the few specifications of the cutting-edge NMC 2170 cell that will fuel their electric vehicles.

Ola Electric claims that its NMC 2170 cell has an energy density of 300 Wh/kg, comparable to the best lithium-ion batteries presently available in the market, such as Tesla, which has not disclosed the energy density of its cells.

Li-ion NMC 2170 stands for nickel-manganese-cobalt, lithium-ion battery chemistry commonly used as the cathode material in electric vehicles.

What are the NMC batteries?

1. Energy density 2. Long cycle life 3. Fast charging 4. High power output 5. Low cost

What features distinguish NMC 2170 cell chemistry

The anode material used in this cell is also a unique combination of graphite and silicon because the anode can store more lithium ions by adding silicon to the graphite, increasing the battery’s energy density.

What kind of anode material does NMC 2170 make use of exactly?

A cell is the heart of the EV revolution.  Ola is building the world’s most advanced cell research center, enabling us to scale and innovate faster and build the most advanced and affordable EV products with speed.
