Delphi develops a new Lithium-metal polymer battery. This battery has achieved specific power greater than 1400 Watts/kg and specific energy greater than 47 Watt-hours/kg. This battery technology delivers high power over a wide range of battery states of charge and temperatures. Operating temperature is from -400 to 700 Celsius. Delphi feels the battery will provide a solution for the hybrid vehicle. The superior charge and discharge efficiency will enable high rates of regenerative brake energy recovery without large power conversion losses. (06-02BD75-8)
