E-mobility startup Cell Propulsion commissions first battery production line in Bengaluru
Electric mobility start-up, Cell Propulsion has announced that it has inaugurated its pilot production plant in Bengaluru for the manufacturing, assembly, and testing of Li-ion battery packs.
The pilot plant has a maximum output capacity of 500kW-hr per month and will manufacture battery packs for eLCVs manufactured by Cell Propulsion.
This launch arrives after Cell Propulsion raised $2 million in June 2021 from a clutch of private equity investors, involving Endiya Partners, GrowX Ventures, Huddle Accelerator, and Micelio.
Last September, the company had also raised $1 million in a pre-series A round of fundraising.
The battery management system designed by Cell Propulsion implements patented algorithms for state estimation of battery packs and can be used for the purposes of both light and heavy commercial vehicles.
Founded by former ISRO engineers, Cell Propulsion offers electric fleet management solutions and focuses on the design and development of electric commercial vehicles (eCVs - eLCVs and eTrucks).
