Johnson Controls is supplying its advanced Lithium-ion batteries for the 2014 Hybrid Range Rover. Production of the cells and complete battery systems is underway at Johnson Controls’ manufacturing facility in Holland, Mich.
Hybrid batteries are a part of the company’s full-spectrum of energy storage solutions for vehicles to help automakers meet increasing regulations for fuel efficiency and emission reductions across their fleets.
“As the first company in the world to produce Lithium-ion batteries for mass production hybrid vehicles, we are excited to work with Jaguar Land Rover,” said Lisa Bahash, vice president and general manager of the Original Equipment Group for Johnson Controls Power Solutions.
