Electrovaya-Litarion Introduces Higher Energy Density 44Ah Lithium Ion Cell

Longest Cycle Life While Providing Highest Safety and Higher Energy Density

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - August 16, 2016) - Electrovaya Inc. (TSX: EFL) (OTCQX: EFLVF) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Litarion GmbH introduces the next generation LITACELL™, LC-44. The LITACELL™ LC-44 with its higher energy density, delivers 44Ah in the same geometry as the 40 Ah LITACELL™ LC-40. The new model LC-44 is available to OEMs and battery pack integrators worldwide and first deliveries will be made this quarter, Q4 FY2016.

The LITACELL™LC-44 features an unparalleled combination of safety, cycle life and cost. It promises extraordinary cycle and calendar life (up to 9000 cycles at 1C charge and 1C discharge at 100% Depth of Discharge), unique safety properties due to the unparalleled stability of SEPARION™ flexible ceramic separator membrane, stringent quality standards and excellent pricing options.

The LITACELL™ LC-44 contains optimized NMC/graphite based electrode chemistry.

"Our strong research team has an exciting program to continuously develop the next generation of lithium-ion cells. The increased energy density of the LC-44 reduces material and other production costs while giving higher energy capacity in the same volume and same geometrical package as the LC-40. Lithium Ion Cells have cost, cycle-life and safety challenges and the LITACELL™ LC-44 provides the break-through technology to address some of these challenges," said Dr. Joerg Reim, Chief Technical Officer, Litarion.

"LITACELL™ 44Ah cells are now available to customers in Europe, North America and elsewhere, where the market demands highest safety and lowest holistic cell costs," says Dr. Pia Kuesgens, Manager, Business Development at Litarion. "We believe this technology should become the industry standard for the Electric Mobility and Energy Storage markets," says Dr. Kuesgens.
