Bengaluru: Bengaluru-headquartered Log9 Materials has announced that it has received the Automotive Industry Standard (AIS) 156 (Rev 3, Ph 1) certification for its RapidX 8000 battery pack for its e-3Ws that largely contribute towards the last mile logistics. The certification was achieved by Log9 RapidX 8000 batteries after a rigorous set of safety tests were conducted by International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT).
This development comes at an opportune time wherein the e-3W segment has been thriving in India on the back of fueling e-commerce logistics demand and government support.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH), Government of India had recently introduced the AIS-156 certification to uphold consumers’ safety on the backdrop of a spate of EV fire/mishap incidents being reported from across India due to negligence of safety compliance by vehicle and battery manufacturers.
In addition to safety, RapidX 8000 batteries are empowered by InstaCharge technology that enables these batteries to be charged within 35 minutes from 0 to 100%.
“Safety, since our inception, has been the cornerstone of every innovation and product that we have brought to the market. As pioneers in battery technology built and nurtured ground-up in India, for India, and equipped with cutting-edge technology and components, we are proud to see our products get certified by ICAT,” said Dr. Akshay Singhal, Founder & CEO, Log9 Materials said.
