Forsee Power, a leading French specialist in intelligent battery systems for sustainable electromobility, is introducing the ZEN LFP, a high-energy battery system designed to enable all-day operation for electric buses, trucks, and off-highway vehicles. Developed by Forsee Power’s R&D engineers, the ZEN LFP battery system will be produced across Europe, North America, and the Asia-Pacific region. It comes in two module sizes: 36 kWh and 55 kWh.
A modular LFP solution to electrify heavy vehicles with an excellent cycle life
ZEN LFP is a cost-efficient, high-energy lithium-ion LFP modular product line designed for the commercial vehicles market (bus, truck, off-highway). ZEN LFP batteries are available in two formats: 36 kWh and 55 kWh, hence offering a wide range of voltage and energy combinations to perfectly match power and energy requirements. The 2 different formats – combined with an excellent energy density of 240 Wh/L, and the ability to stack up to 2 modules – allow a multitude of integration possibilities to optimize all available space in the vehicle.
Forsee Power’s safe and robust design complies with ISO 26262 ASIL-C and is compatible with numerous stringent industry standards (including R100-3, R10.6, AIS-038 rev.2, SAE J2464 and SAE J2929), ensuring the reliability and durability of the battery system. It is also compatible with the C-box LFP industry standard format for easy replacement, while being more compact, and able to provide up to 20% more power.
This new high-energy battery system offers an exceptional life of up to 6,000 cycles and cost optimization related to the LFP chemistry, hence providing a very low Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) to operators.
A product available worldwide and manufactured in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America
Forsee Power is leading the world market for bus batteries outside of China and has developed a very strong commercial and industrial footprint in Europe, Asia-Pacific, and North America. The Group is rapidly developing in other market segments such as off-highway vehicles, trucks, and trains, with a modular and flexible production offering.
The battery expert has located the production of its batteries close to its customers’ assembly plants, thus significantly reducing the carbon footprint linked to transport and limiting delivery costs and times. The production sites also provide battery maintenance services, in addition to remote diagnosis.
Already present in Europe and Asia, Forsee Power will start to produce locally in the United States early 2024 to serve the Americas zone. This local production in Columbus, Ohio, will align with the Buy American Act.
