Electric & hybrid technology

Over the past 20 years, ACTIA has been involved in a large number of innovation programs for electric vehicle.

ACTIA designs, develops & produces power train system, batteries, battery management system and power conversion for electric car, bus, coach and commercial vehicle.



ACTIA designs and manufactures a range of electric traction systems for light vehicles, utility vehicles and buses offering power output from 30kW to 180kW. These solutions already have proven reliability with nearly 5000 vehicles on the road. With a power output of 140-180kW, the unit designed for bus is linked to a reduction gear and provides very high performance from a compact design. This output enables greater range and reduced battery wear. Having taken all these factors and vehicle operational considerations into account, ACTIA's solution offers both performance and excellent value.

ACTIA's unique position in traction systems stems from the Group's historic expertise in vehicle body/chassis architecture and in power management systems.

In addition, ACTIA offers a range of batteries and converters tailored to these applications.


Battery & Battery Management System

The new "TraBat-LTO" and "TraBat-LFP" series of traction batteries from ACTIA are specifically designed for robust, powerful operation for a variety of mobile applications (e.g. for hybrid- and fuel cell vehicles or for electric vehicles with fast charge requirements). Our traction batteries can be delivered with Lithium-Titanate cells (LTO) or with Lithium-Ferro-Phosphate cells (LFP). ACTIA's innovative BMS electronic "Master 4" and "Slave 5" ensure a safe and durable operation for both chemistries.

An integrated energy counter simplifies the analysis of battery usage and performance. Main advantages of "TraBat" battery systems with appr. 600 VDC nominal system voltage are the high power availability with continuous 3-5 C charge and discharge power and a peak power performance up to 5-10 C for 30 sec.

Our battery systems are delivered with a liquid cooling solution and depending upon the operation and usage profile, we can offer an optional underlying life time warranty of maximum 5 years.
