The EV start-up ATLIS Motors announced on Tuesday that signed a memorandum of understanding with INDe EV Limited to develop 500 30 KWh battery packs with the deliveries expected in December 2023. ATLIS began the development of the AMV battery cell at its headquarters in Mesa, Arizona, in June 2021 becoming the first in the industry to charge in less than 15 minutes
The company added that, by building battery cells in-house, ATLIS is “developing its own battery supply chain, working to provide ultra-fast charging batteries to companies that are currently struggling to secure their own allotment from top battery suppliers”.
“ATLIS technological breakthroughs in battery cell efficiency and battery management systems stand out and its batteries are the logical choice as we develop this new commercial van and create more local jobs,” said Tony Hayes, managing director, INDe EV.
“Our AMV battery cells and pack are designed to easily be integrated into the propulsion systems of any electric vehicle,” said Mark Hanchett, CEO of Atlis Motor Vehicles. “This agreement with INDe EV expands our global footprint and further validates the development of our technology.”
Last week, Atlis announced the signature of an agreement with the defense vehicle developer Advent Atum to buy its fully electric vehicle platform, the ATLIS XP. The company headquartered in Holsworthy (Australia) will use the platform in the development of its autonomous defense and specialist commercial products.
The XP platform is the only full suite EV skateboard solution to convert a traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle to an EV and Atlis plans to begin its production by the end of 2022.
Earlier this year, ATLIS announced that Australian Manufactured Vehicles (AusMV) became ATLIS’s first institutional investor under the entity Boss Global Investments. By 2025, AusMV plans to buy 19,000 ATLIS XT pickups and complete right-hand drive production in Australia for sale in the Oceania and Southeast Asia markets under the ATLIS brand.
