Microvast to provide EV/FCEV batteries for Gaussin truck skateboard platform
Industrial and specialty EV battery provider Microvast will provide Gaussin for its subsequent era skateboard highway truck platform.
Gaussin specialises in design and meeting of electrical and gas cell autos for transport and logistics. It can combine Microvast’s new era of batteries to be used in its electrical and hydrogen skateboard platforms.
Each corporations will collaborate to develop a collection of latest skateboard highway vehicles for the logistics and transport sectors.
With vertical integration functionality, Microvast stated, it could present a large selection of various cell chemistries in its normal battery packs which may meet diversified technical necessities by way of energy, vitality density and cycle life. Modularity provides Gaussin nice flexibility in car design.
