ION in the News
The local supply chain for all critical parts of EVs a must: Akhil Aryan of ION Energy. For the record, ION Energy is a tier-1 supplier to manufacturers like Bajaj Auto and TVS Motor Company, the two major Indian OEMs that have entered the EV segment, which, Aryan believes, is set to grow after Covid-19.
Cofounded in 2016 by Akhil Aryan, ION Energy is a deep tech startup that optimizes battery management systems (BMS) and enhances the life and performance of lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles. Using ION Energy’s technology, companies are able to buy or build their own BMS, which measures cell voltages, keeps balanced charge cycles and controls safety systems. Currently, ION Energy works with organizations such as Ola Cabs, Okinawa Scooters, Tata Motors and Airbus.
“Electric vehicles (EV) are deemed to be the sunrise sector of the automobile industry as they are solely responsible for the sector’s impending transformation into a renewable alternative over fossil-fuel-dependent vehicles,” says Akhil Aryan, founder of Ion Energy in Mumbai. “India has shown considerable progress in the EV space with serious players spearheading numerous initiatives to promote EV adoption.”
