When an electric vehicle manufacturer needed lithium batteries for its new range, it had only one company in mind
The quiet and clean operation of electric vehicles allows for less maintenance and, therefore, lower incurred costs. Added to this is the priorities of an electric vehicle manufacturer is to ensure the same performance – or even higher – over its diesel or petrol equivalent. Alkè is a pioneer in this area, with over 25 years of experience and thousands of electric highway vehicles used for transport, logistics and other multipurpose or specialty operations.
The R&D team at Alkè has an innovative approach and are committed to researching into the latest generation technologies applied to offhighway vehicles. This combination has led it to develop the ATX range of electric vehicles, which incorporate technical solutions derived from years of experience and on-field tests and are type-approved for on-road use at the European level (category N1).
The idea from the beginning was to go from conventional acid-lead battery-powered vehicles to lithium battery-powered vehicles. Alkè was aware that the transition to lithium batteries was going to be more complex because there were many things to consider, especially the BMS system (Battery Management System). As a result the company reached out to Flash Battery.
