Cummins unveiled its latest range of lithium-ion batteries at the Battery Show Europe this week, introducing four scalable products, including battery packs and modules.
“With a 100-year-long track record of powering our customers’ success, Cummins is leading the way in transforming the future of transportation with our cutting-edge lithium-ion battery line-up that’s part of a diverse power portfolio,” said Andrew Penca, general manager for Battery Systems at Cummins. “Cummins is committed to investing US$500m in electrification over three years. These investments include innovation of fully electric and hybrid power solutions that will serve our markets as they adopt electrification.”
The BP74E (74kWh battery pack), BP35E (35kWh battery pack), BM44E (44kWh battery module) and BM20E (20kWh battery module) are designed and built in-house utilizing Li-ion technology, with a high energy density and proprietary control technology maintaining a high battery performance for a longer zero emission range. The modular design allows the system to be scaled and aligned with the capability and duty cycle of the application.
“With our recent battery pack acquisitions in the USA and the UK, Cummins now has unique Li-ion battery pack design expertise across the entire energy storage spectrum,” said Penca. “We are pleased to release this new line-up and showcase how we are using our century’s worth of deep customer and market expertise, as well as our robust global service network, to deliver electric and hybrid products tailored specifically to fit our customers’ needs.”
