We aim to offer our products to multiple new customers, including Indian automotive OEMs and battery pack manufacturers.”

Akhil Aryan, CEO and co-founder, Ion Energy said, “Maxwell’s business is growing exponentially and large OEMs are relying on us to deliver on their electrification plans. The partnership with Endurance enables us to deliver on our commitments with strength and reliability. Together we will reinforce and consolidate our supply chain, operations and manufacturing. We will also expand the team and product portfolio to accelerate the global EV transition with a strong focus on India.”
