Lilium announces partnership for high-volume production of Lilium Jet battery cells

Lilium has announced that it is extending its existing partnership with InoBat. InoBat is expected to provide high-volume production of the Lilium Jet’s high-performance battery cells. The company says the continued partnership reaffirms Lilium’s multiple-sourcing strategy for cell production and will contribute towards securing a healthy supply of Lilium’s battery cells for entry into service of the Lilium Jet and the years thereafter.

According to the press release “InoBat will build Lilium Jet battery cells at its existing Volta I and future Volta II plants in Voderady, Slovakia. Production at the Volta I plant is due to start in early 2024. The Volta II plant will be InoBat’s first gigafactory with up to 4 gigawatt hours (GWh) of production capacity, just a fraction of which is expected to be required to supply Lilium’s battery cell needs in the coming years. Gotion High-Tech, supplier of the Unified Cell that is due to be installed in up to 80% of all Volkswagen Group’s future electric vehicles, holds a 25 percent stake in InoBat. Gotion High-Tech, whose largest external shareholder is Volkswagen Group, will contribute resources and manufacturing know-how to ramp-up the capacity at InoBat’s Volta II plant.

“Lilium, which participated in InoBat’s recent Series C investment round, will retain its valuable intellectual property rights in the Lilium Jet battery technology.  Multiple third-party testing campaigns carried out on prototype Lilium battery cells have demonstrated the energy capacity, power and cycle life of this cutting-edge battery cell technology.”
