Forsee Power unveils FLEX PLUS, the latest addition to its ‘PLUS’ smart battery system family, revolutionizing electric mobility with a solution designed for heavy electric vehicles.
Forsee Power, a leading player in intelligent battery systems, is ushering in the FLEX PLUS, an innovative, high-value battery system targeted at powering heavy electric vehicles, including buses, trucks, and off-highway vehicles. The FLEX PLUS battery pack adds to the expanding ‘PLUS’ product portfolio, joining the ZEN PLUS, a high-energy battery system range that debuted in 2022.
Why It Matters
FLEX PLUS offers a prime solution that harmonizes power and energy to cater to 100% battery opportunity charging, thermal hybrid, and fuel-cell heavy vehicles. Available in two variants – 52 kWh and 56 kWh – FLEX PLUS adapts voltage and energy to match the application’s demand. It supports both 650V and 800V motorizations within the same battery format, setting new standards for electric heavy vehicles.
FLEX PLUS is more than just a battery system. It’s an eco-designed product offering 8,000 cycles for a superiorly competitive Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Designed by Forsee Power’s seasoned engineers, FLEX PLUS utilizes best-in-class NMC lithium-ion cells along with a high-performance liquid thermal management system to ensure an extended lifespan. After their initial life cycle, FLEX PLUS batteries can be repurposed for stationary energy storage systems, contributing to sustainability.
Moreover, FLEX PLUS facilitates easy repairability with a detachable Power Distribution Unit (PDU). This convenience not only bolsters vehicle availability but also ensures maintenance efficiency. Adhering to the strictest safety standards, including ISO 26262 ASIL-C, R100-3, R10-6, ISO 12405, and SAE J2464, FLEX PLUS underscores Forsee Power’s commitment to safety and reliability.
With manufacturing facilities in Europe, Asia, and North America, Forsee Power is poised to cater to the burgeoning global demand for zero-emission heavy vehicles. The imminent operational launch in Columbus, Ohio, by the end of 2023, is a testament to their expanding industrial footprint. With localized production, the company can minimize transportation-induced carbon footprint while also curtailing delivery costs and times. Forsee Power’s newest offering, FLEX PLUS, encapsulates the future of sustainable electromobility, highlighting the company’s dedication to innovation and sustainability.
