CATL is going to provide lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries equipped with Cell to Pack (CTP) technology to Solaris
Under the partnership, CATL will supply lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries with Cell to Pack (CTP) technology to Solaris for the electrification of its buses, the company said.
According to the company, CATL’s LFP battery system features exceptionally long battery life and high thermal stability. Its CTP technology increases the battery energy density and payload of the e-bus, eliminating the need for conventional module parts. Powered with LFP batteries, Solaris’ e-buses may offer an outstanding performance record in safety and distinguished temperature adaptability.
Solaris is one of Europe’s leading bus and trolleybus manufacturers. Based in Bolechowo, Poland, the company has been manufacturing buses for the last 25 years with over 22,000 vehicles.
The company is gradually shifting its activities into electrification. In 2021, Solaris ranks first in the zero-emission bus market. Its partnership with CATL will further expand its operations into electrification as it offers new battery solutions for its vehicles.
