Default High capacity Lithium-ion battery developed by ISRO to be available to the private sector

The Indian government had requested ISRO to make available the high-power Li-ion batteries used in launch vehicles for usage by Private sectors.

The battery technology is an indigenous development by the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre under ISRO. Also, ISRO is in the process formulating a framework for smooth execution of the availability of battery technology.

This would be good move in order to push the acceptance of Electric vehicle.

Mods: I could not find a similar thread and hence creating a new. Please merge to an existing thread , if already available.

I wonder how it compares with Tesla's new 2170 battery cell in terms of capacity and lifespan. Do we have any specs for this?

ISRO is all ready to partner with private manufacturers to transfer know how and technology for Li-Ion battery manufacturing in India. This will go a long way in reducing the cost of battery manufacturing for electric vehicles (currently batteries imported mostly from China). Will it help in ushering the EV regime sooner and keeping costs affordable? Only time will tell. Hope this doesnt get entangled in bureaucratic delays and formalities which will put off private partners.
