We are excited to work together to develop cutting-edge cell and battery pack technology to further electrify this market segment.”

This sentiment was echoed by Micheal He, President and CEO of FinDreams Battery, who highlighted the strategic advantage of the collaboration amidst geopolitical complications and the starting point of lithium iron phosphate electrification for overseas commercial vehicles. He commented, “The overseas localization cooperation with BorgWarner on battery packs using FDB blade cells in the territory takes the advantages of each other’s strengths, provides diversified and flexible options for overseas customers, and also offers extra access to localized battery packs using FDB blade cells for overseas customers. Devoted to the vision of ‘let people use batteries carefree,’ FDB will cooperate with BorgWarner to make joint efforts for the speedy electrification of the overseas commercial vehicle market.”
