SE: When and how did you get involved in LEVs?
BL: As a lithium ion battery pack supplier, we were pushed by the clients to work on LEV and other high power applications since 2003. As we all know that the LEV has been in the market for several years. Recently, the demands of lithium battery for LEV are begin to mature. To prepare for the up-stream demand, we are dedicated our entire resources to the high power applications including LEV and power tool.
SE: What is your personal motivation to work in LEVs?
BL: I am a strong supporter of “clean air” and a “non-active environmentalist”. Using LEV as a local transportation, it’s not only reduce air pollution but also minimum the consumption of the gasoline. Additionally, as a supplier of lithium ion battery pack provider, it helps me to reach both targets.
