Toshiba To Supply SCiB Rechargeable Battery For Nissan And Mitsubishi Hybrids

News

Toshiba Corporation announced that Nissan Motor Corporation selected its innovative SCiB lithium-ion rechargeable battery for the latest generation of its ROOX and ROOX Highway STAR cars.

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has selected similar batteries for its eK X space and eK space cars.

The battery will be integrated into the recuperation battery system supplied to Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors by Marelli Corporation.

The vehicles with mild hybrid system harvest kinetic energy during deceleration to charge the SCiB, which drives an electric motor that assists the engine—and reduces gasoline consumption—during vehicle start, acceleration and moving from idling.

The characteristics of the SCiB make it a superb choice for the new cars. The battery's lithium titanium oxide negative electrode excels in rapid charging performance, long life and high energy input and output, all characteristic highly suited for start-stop and mild hybrid systems.

Toshiba Group has positioned the SCiB as a new growth business under the Toshiba Next Plan, Toshiba Group's five-year transformation plan. Toshiba Group will continue to strengthen its battery business, taking advantages of the characteristics of the SCiB.
