Johnson Controls shows its Lithium Titanate Battery for Advanced Start-Stop vehicles

Article by Christian A., on January 8, 2015

Future vehicles will arrive as standard with advanced start-stop systems and Johnson Controls knows this fact very well. As a result, the company announced that it will introduce at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) a Lithium Titanate battery. The battery will offer company’s latest 12-volt technology, which is a collaboration with Toshiba, will be used exclusively for Advanced Start-Stop vehicles.

According to the official press release, the Lithium Titanate chemistry is effective at quickly recharging and works well in a wide range of temperatures. What’s more interesting is that it can be integrated into a vehicle’s 12-volt electrical system.

For those who don’t know, the Advanced Start-Stop system features two batteries, a 12-volt Absorbent Glass mat (AGM) or Enhanced Flooded Battery (EFB), which starts the engine and supplies power to accessories such as lights, navigation systems and radios.

In addition, the 12-volt Lithium Titanate battery will store regenerative braking energy obtained during vehicle deceleration. Still, don’t expect to see this battery soon as Johnson Controls plans to start production of the Lithium Titanate battery in 2018.

“Johnson Controls is pursuing opportunities to develop evolutionary low-voltage energy storage systems that will help our customers meet increasing fuel regulations at a lower cost than a hybrid or electric vehicle,” said Lisa Bahash, group vice president and general manager Original Equipment, Johnson Controls Power Solutions. “In partnership with Toshiba, we are expanding our Lithium-ion product offerings to support the needs of our global customers.” [source: Johnson Controls]
