Clarios to Supply AGM Batteries to Leading OEMs


United States. Clarios, producer of one in three of the world's low-voltage car batteries, said it secured a supplier contract with a major OEM for its new absorbent glass mat (AGM) battery.

This is a high-performance rechargeable: a 12-volt battery with higher charge acceptance compared to traditional AGM batteries to help reduce fuel consumption and help reduce CO2 emissions.

Clarios' new AGM technology provides significantly improved recharging capacity compared to other AGM batteries, the company said. As such, the new AGM battery for light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles will be introduced for the first time in North America under a supply contract with a major OEM.

According to Clarios, AGM batteries are used throughout the industry to meet the growing demands for low-voltage systems found in all vehicles. From internal combustion to hybrids to electric vehicles, traditional AGM batteries are being adopted to support features such as lane-keeping assist, side blind zone alerts, engine start-stop cycles, adaptive cruise control, infotainment systems, and connected services and applications.

The new Clarios AGM battery supports all of these important features with the added benefit of increased charge acceptance, the company said. The automaker may choose to optimize its low-voltage battery charging strategy, to help improve fuel economy and help support carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions reduction targets.

"We understand the focus automakers have on reducing emissions from their vehicles and how any improvements are important to help them achieve their circularity goals," said Federico Morales-Zimmermann, vice president of Clarios and GM global OEM customers, products and engineering.

"This new AGM battery is the latest example of how we are innovating across our product lines to support customers, their new programs and low-voltage architectures," he said.
