    Axeon supplies batteries for first Hiriko prototype electric vehicles

    Spanish firm Hiriko has chosen Axeon, Europe’s largest independent supplier of lithium-ion battery systems, to supply batteries for its prototype electric vehicles. The urban electric two-seaters, which will be built in Vitoria-Gasteiz, feature a unique folding design that allows them to park in a very limited space, with a single access door at the front of the vehicle and an advanced steer-by-wire system, which removes all mechanical steering components.During the first quarter of 2012, Axeon will supply each Hiriko prototype with two powerful lithium-ion batteries mounted in parallel – one in each half of the vehicle, with electric wheel-mounted motors providing four-wheel steering and four-wheel drive.
