Brussels-‐Belgium, Modena-‐Italy: 01st March 2021
ABEE (Avesta Battery Energy Engineering) and Automobili Estrema have entered into a Merger Agreement in support of a global battery and high-‐performance electric vehicle project. The newly formed holding company is named Estrema-‐ABEE Technologies.
Estrema-‐ABEE Technologies will focus on delivering industry-‐first innovations with Automobili Estrema designing and manufacturing low-‐volume high-‐performance electric vehicles and with ABEE providing proprietary technology regarding next generation battery technology and battery packs.
The developed hybrid battery pack, with cell to pack technology, will soon equip Automobili Estrema’s first vehicle prototype model called “Fulminea”. This breakthrough battery technology will utilise ABEE’s Li-‐ion solid-‐state cells reaching an unprecedented energy density of 450 Wh/kg (1.200 Wh/l). Fulminea is set to be delivered to its first customers in Q3 2023.
