Toshiba’s SCiB™ Rechargeable Battery Selected for Mitsubishi Motors’ New Super Height Kei Wagon eK X space and eK space

Mar 23, 2020

TOKYO –( ASIA TODAY )– Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has selected its innovative SCiB™ lithium-ion rechargeable battery for the latest generation of its eK X space and eK space cars. The battery will be integrated into the recuperation battery system supplied to Mitsubishi Motors by Marelli Corporation.
The hybrid system of Mitsubishi Motors’ eK X space and eK space harvests kinetic energy during deceleration to charge the SCiB™, which drives an electric motor that assists the engine—and reduces gasoline consumption—during vehicle start, acceleration and moving from idling.
The characteristics of the SCiB™ make it a superb choice for Mitsubishi Motors’ new cars. The battery’s lithium titanium oxide negative electrode excels in rapid charging performance, long life and high energy input and output, all characteristic highly suited for start-stop and mild hybrid systems. These same qualities also won the SCiB™ selection for Mitsubishi Motors’ eK X and eK Wagon, which were released last year.
Toshiba Group has positioned the SCiB™ as a new growth business under the Toshiba Next Plan, Toshiba Group’s five-year transformation plan. Toshiba Group will continue to strengthen its battery business, taking advantages of the characteristics of the SCiB™.
