Hitachi is scheduled or release yet another lithium iron battery for consideration, obviously aimed at the growing clamor for hybrid electric cars. Boasting of a supposed high power density of 4,500 W/kg, 1.7 times the output of the company’s mass-produced, automotive lithium-ion batteries, this new battery is certain to be a welcome addition to the auto industry.
To reduce internal resistance, the battery employs a new manganese cathode and an original Hitachi battery structure, such as thinner electrodes, power collection method and effective configurations.
Sampling of the new battery by domestic and overseas car manufacturers will start in the fall.
