Automotive applications of SCiB™.
SUZUKI MOTOR CORPORATION
SCiB™ contributes to improving fuel efficiency.
SCiB™ is used in SUZUKI's Mild Hybrid, S-eNe CHARGE and eNe-CHARGE. SCiB™ helps enhance SUZUKI's fuel-saving technology by storing the electric energy produced during deceleration. This energy is then used to run the motor that assists the combustion engine* and operates other automotive equipment.
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation
SCiB™ is used in Mitsubishi Motors' electric vehicles (EVs).
The i-MiEV's M grade, MINICAB-MiEV CD 10.5kWh and MINICAB-MiEV TRUCK electric vehicles utilize SCiB™. Mitsubishi Motors has selected SCiB™ because of its outstanding rapid charging/discharging and life-cycle performance as well as its low temperature performance.
