Continental’s development and production service provider, Continental Engineering Services (CES) is cooperating with the battery specialist Varta. The aim of the partnership is to develop new technologies and products that particularly lead to advances in sustainable solutions in the field of electro mobility.

In a first pilot project, both partners have jointly developed an innovative product for the two-wheeler market. It is a replaceable 48-volt battery pack for electrically powered two-wheelers with a power of 10 kW and more. The battery pack consists of VARTA’s V4Drive high-performance cell based on lithium-ion technology, which is characterized by its high performance, fast chargeability, low-temperature resistance and compact design.

They added, ” A specially developed battery management system from CES now allows the use of this extremely powerful battery cell in automotive two-wheeler applications. The special feature: The lightweight (nine kg) battery pack gives a range of 50 kilometers and power of 10 kW. It can be detached from the two-wheeler with a simple pull and charged externally. In addition, any number of battery packs can be connected and controlled via the new battery management systems. As a result the range of an e-scooter can be doubled to 100 kilometers by using two batteries.”

Alex Rupprecht, Director Business Segment Driveline & Electrification at CES said, “Continental Engineering Services and Varta have jointly developed an attractive solution for commuters without their own parking space. The 48-volt swappable battery based on the revolutionary V4Drive cell paired with our innovative battery management system enables the breakthrough of electric mobility for a long range commute on two wheels. The battery system has a high power density, meets the automotive standards in its performance class and can easily be removed from the scooter and charged quickly. This is an ideal solution for commuters who don’t have a charging opportunity at their parking space.”

This cooperation between two major established corporations now makes this technological leap possible. In a context of increasingly scarce fossil fuels and their impact on the climate, CES and Varta want to use this partnership to promote low-emission, particularly robust and economical drive alternatives.

Components and system development already tested in large-scale production can be customized and further developed with precision. For example, the new battery system for two-wheeled electric vehicles was also realized in just half a year, from the first idea to fully functional prototypes.
