Zero to 80% battery charge in 15 minutes

Beijing-based Evoke Motorcycles has announced that it’s testing anew, second generation modular battery for its electric motorcycles. The new batteries are designed to allow for ultra-fast charging – and Evoke claims that they can be recharged from 0-80% in just 15 minutes.

The batteries incorporate a number of new advancements, including aproprietary active thermal management system – which works using a combination of software and hardware to precisely control the temperature range of the Li-ion 18650 battery cells, and helps to increase the life of Evoke’s batterypacks.

Evoke’s second generation, fast charging batteries are designed as amodular system, and as a consequence can be used in a variety of different applications by being daisy-chained together for use in other small and medium-size electric vehicles.
