Rimac, EVE Team Up on Battery Cell Production in Europe

EVE will focus on cell manufacturing, while Rimac will produce a battery module and pack platform using the cells.

Rimac Technology, a provider of high-performance automotive technology solutions to global OEMs, has partnered with EVE Energy, a manufacturer of lithium batteries including the 46xx cylindrical cell format. This partnership was formally initiated during the IAA Mobility event in Munich.

The collaboration will see the two companies join forces to manufacture battery cells in Europe through 2027 in an agreement that will address the need for sustainable energy solutions and bolster the local European supply chain, the companies say. EVE will focus on cell manufacturing while Rimac Technology will focus on the development and high-volume production of a battery module and pack platform using the cells.

Rimac Technology said it already has a series of projects with large European OEMs that will use this platform, which creates high-performance battery systems at competitive cost and fully customizable configurations. The company said the solution meets the demands of the industry offering energy density, customizable cell-to-pack solutions and an advanced battery management system.

One key advantages of 46XX cylindrical cells lies in their alignment with evolving regulations regarding thermal propagation, Rimac said. The cell’s cylindrical format lends itself to optimal thermal management which is crucial for the safety and reliability of electric vehicles.

“EVE Energy is one of the largest primary lithium battery manufacturers worldwide and brings a lot of experience in battery cell technology to this partnership,” said Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of Rimac Group. “Its dedication to advancing lithium battery solutions aligns perfectly with our vision of transforming the electric vehicle and energy storage sectors. We’re thrilled to announce this collaboration that secures a long-term reliable partner for our 46XX platform.”

By establishing a local, European supply chain for advanced battery solutions, Rimac Technology and EVE are looking to raise the bar for sustainability and efficiency in the industry and across the continent.

“The Rimac name is synonymous with innovation and a passion for pushing the limits of what is possible in the automotive industry. We are excited to join forces with Rimac Technology to redefine the future of battery systems production,” said Jincheng Liu, founder and chairman, EVE Energy. “By combining our strengths, we can create batteries that meet the highest performance and efficiency standards.”
