IAA Mobility 2021: Pepper Motion and TWAICE partner for battery transparency

Pepper Motion, the global manufacturer of retrofit solutions for the electrification of used and new commercial vehicles has entered a partnership with TWAICE, the provider of predictive analytics software for the development and operation of lithium-ion batteries.  

The collaboration with TWAICE will allow Pepper Motion customers to have extended battery insights which enables a more efficient fleet operation. As the TWAICE software will also bring targeted battery usage recommendations to drivers, the service life and economic efficiency of the vehicle batteries will become more transparent.

From diesel to zero-emission

"The battery is the most cost-intensive part of an electric drive system and the one with the largest CO2 footprint”, says Adreas Hager, Managing Director of Pepper Motion. “This makes it even more important for us to make this component usable for as long as possible in different life cycles.  In this way, we are also fulfilling the most important part of our corporate mission to drive decarbonization forward quickly with sustainable mobility solutions and to keep the CO2 footprint as low as possible - to effectively counter climate change and make a valuable contribution to our society and our planet."

Dr. Stephan Rohr, co-CEO of TWAICE: "our combined strengths literally give diesel vehicles a second life as zero-emission electric vehicles. The partnership with pepper creates innovative future solutions that take electromobility a decisive step further."
