Delivering high-performance battery and charging technologies, Nyobolt aims to create a world where lengthy charge times no longer exist.
Nyobolt has assembled a world-leading implementation team combining decades of experience in pioneering companies across the electric vehicle and battery value chains through operations in the UK, US, and Asia.
Briefing Aishwarya about the latest technology drivers in battery solutions, Sai Shivareddy, CEO and Co-Founder of Nyobolt talks about the key technical challenges of battery pack in electric vehicle segment.
Delivering a wide spectrum of battery technology solution, what makes Nyobolt battery solutions and products different from its competitors?
Nyobolt’s battery technology combines fast charging and long cycle life, providing industrial users with a high uptime, long life solution to keep operations running with fewer vehicles and fewer batteries. All of which provides significant advantages to fleet, public transport. logistics and automation customers.
The combination of fast charging, long cycle life and energy density provided by Nyobolt’s technology sets Nyobolt apart from other R&D and manufacturing companies. This performance enables operators to transition away from internal combustion engines using an appropriately sized battery, providing operational and commercial benefits. Nyobolt is engaged with markets and industries that have demonstrated an essential need for the capabilities provided by our battery technology.
Claimed to have developed a smaller and lighter battery pack that can also be fully charged in just six minutes, tell us more about this revolutionary battery technology?
The team at Nyobolt has created batteries capable of charging in minutes, through pioneering novel anode materials, cell design, efficient software control and power electronics. The company’s system level approach has resulted in uniquely efficient fast- charging batteries.
The technology is proven across a wide range of applications and scenarios on both industrial and consumer scales. Nyobolt is engaged in a number of conversations with automotive customers with plans to begin battery supply in to OEMS from 2026. Whilst Nyobolt’s battery technology might initially be of greatest appeal to sportscar and premium automotive brands, it is capable of widespread adoption, with potentially enormous benefits for the electric vehicle industry as a whole.
Industrial automation is an integral part of efficient manufacturing processes. How do you see the potential of EVs with the rise of IIoTs?
Fast charging and long cycle life are performance attributes which will be more and more important as the use of autonomous EVs increases. These attributes mean higher uptime, higher productivity and fewer vehicles required.
Among the key technical challenges of battery pack, for example low voltage signal on the battery pack, verification of BMS functionality, implementing effective DC internal resistance testing, how does Nyobolt counter these technical challenges in their battery packs?
Nyobolt’s applications engineering team have a wealth of experience in the design, development and integration of modules and packs for a range of challenging applications including high performance automotive. Nyobolt’s teams take a system level approach to address technical challenges in battery pack design.
Regarding the recent news about partnership with CALLUM, mention its details and how will this collaboration foster the product portfolio of Nyobolt in future?
The EV collaboration showcases how Nyobolt’s revolutionary battery technology can be readily adopted across the automotive industry – it emphasises just one of the directions in which Nyobolt’s product portfolio can be developed.
Nyobolt wished to demonstrate its ultra-fast charging battery technology in a nimble, lightweight sportscar and turned to the talents of revered car designer, Julian Thomson. Following Nyobolt’s approach in 2021 and working as a freelance designer before being appointed design director at GM Advanced Design Europe, Thomson embraced the opportunity, inviting design and engineering business CALLUM to see the design through to execution.
With CALLUM and Nyobolt working hand-in-hand, a system-level approach has addressed each aspect – from materials, to cell, to pack, to drivetrain, to perspective of the whole vehicle. The final collaborative design therefore reflects the original vehicle’s premise of a high power-to-weight ratio within an exquisite, luxury package.
The resultant ‘Nyobolt EV’ weighs just over one tonne, uses a 35kWh battery and is capable of fully charging with up to 250km range in under 6 mins, using existing charging infrastructure. That’s the equivalent of charging at over 1,600 mph, more than double the fastest charging cars on the road today.
Kindly let us know about any upcoming projects Nyobolt is currently working on?
The technology showcased in the concept Nyobolt EV is proven across a range of applications and Nyobolt is engaged in a number of conversations with automotive customers with plans to begin battery production and subsequent supply in to OEMS from 2026.
