New EHW5 lithium-ion battery

Blue Energy’s new lithium-ion battery to be installed on Honda Clarity Fuel Cell

A lithium-ion battery manufactured and sold by Blue Energy, a joint venture between GS Yuasa and Honda Motor Company, will be featured on the all-new Clarity Fuel Cell FCV.

The new EHW5 lithium-ion battery generates more output despite its reduced weight and size. Though the EHW5 battery is 17% lighter and 7% smaller than conventional batteries, it offers more capacity and output performance along with durability and safety.

Blue Energy began producing lithium-ion batteries in 2011 and has equipped over 500,000 vehicles or over 26 million cells as of fiscal 2015
