Light Vehicle – Micro-hybrid

A New Battery Generation for the Next Car Generation

With EU legislation limiting vehicle CO2 emissions to 130 g/km by 2015, the automotive industry has entered a new era. In their efforts to comply, car manufacturers have developed a complete line of new vehicle models: Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEV). Set to expand their market penetration considerably, Micro-hybrid vehicles currently represent the most operationally feasible and reliable technological solution.

Micro-hybrid vehicles feature the following equipment:

  • Regenerative breaking
  • Fuel Reduction equipment
  • Stop & start

Exide AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat)

For premium Micro-hybrid with Stop & Start system + Regenerative braking. Jointly developed with Europe’s major vehicle manufacturers of premium micro-hybrid applications, Exide AGM (Absorbent Glass Mat) is the most advanced technology able to provide optimal performance in extreme cycling applications, with both high-charge acceptance and partial state-of-charge operations. These factors are absolutely key for micro-hybrid vehicles equipped with Stop & Start and Regenerative Braking systems.

Exide ECM (Enhanced Cycling Mat)

For entry level Micro-hybrid with Stop & Start system. Jointly developed with Europe’s major vehicle manufacturers of micro-hybrid applications, Exide ECM (Enhanced Cycle Mat) technology is perfectly adapted to entry-level micro-hybrid vehicles equipped with the Stop & Start system.
