Lion certifies heavy-duty battery pack for Class 8 trucks – Truck News

Lion Electric announced this morning that it has received final certification for its heavy-duty battery pack, the LionBattery HD.

The lithium-ion battery packs will power its electric heavy-duty trucks. Lion says it worked with third-party testing partners to meet the certification requirements and that the LionBattery HD meets the most rigorous criteria and safety standards that exist in the auto industry.

The 105 kWh battery packs will be installed in the recently announced Lion8 Class 8 tractor. It has already certified its medium-duty battery packs.

“At Lion, our commitment to pushing innovation to new heights is exemplified by the development of our state-of-the-art batteries, like the LionBattery HD for heavy-duty trucks,” said CEO and founder Marc Bedard.

“With major battery development milestones behind us, we will now focus on optimizing the integration of both the LionBattery MD and HD packs on our vehicles, which should ultimately translate into production efficiency.”

The battery packs will be produced at Lion’s Quebec battery plant, with a capacity of 1.7 gigawatt hours, enough to power 5,000 trucks per year.
