Toshiba today announced that its innovative SCiBTM rechargeable battery is an integral part of ENE-CHARGE, an innovative power management and highly efficient regenerative braking system introduced in the Wagon R and Wagon R Stingray, the latest versions of Suzuki ‘s best-selling kei car compact vehicles. Toshiba’s SCiBTM adopts Lithium titanate oxide in the battery anode, achieves rapid charge and a long battery life in wide range of environments.

In extremely cold conditions the SCiBTM is less likely to experience lithium metal deposition, which increases the risk of internal short circuiting and battery degradation. The 3Ah SCiBTM battery for the Wagon R series, offers high power with a compact cell size; as much as 6,000W/liter at 25 degrees Celsius and 1,400W/liter at -10 degrees Celsius.
