Idan Kovent was recently appointed the new Chief Operating Officer of ALTe and reports on its business development as follows:

1) We are pleased to report that the Department of Energy (DOE) gave ALTe a “substantially complete” letter for the ATVM Loan application. ALTe will move on to the next step in completing its due diligence process. ALTe will soon offer Ford F-150 battery electric vehicle (BEV) and Ford Transit BEV powertrains quick-to-market solutions to its customer.

2) ALTe is pleased to announce the offering of a newly designed and patented battery module, the ALTe Brick. The new design releases ALTe from any dependency in specific and expensive battery manufacturers and allows ALTe to make large cost cuts on its design.

4) Most recently, the South Korean Jeju Consortium through Begins Corporation is interested in a Joint Venture (JV) with ALTe. Begins is a quasi-government entity that is the general contractor for many electrification developments in Korea. The JV will allow ALTe to start manufacturing of the battery bricks described above. The JV will develop and produce battery packs for vehicles in Jeju Island, South Korea with other cities to follow.

5) Continental Automotive Systems has shown interest in ALTe’s engineering capabilities. Continental and ALTe are discussing a possible 2 year engineering services contract.
