Lyten’s lithium-sulfur batteries to power Chrysler’s Halcyon Concept EV

Lithium-sulfur battery technology developer, Lyten on Monday said it has been selected to power Chrysler's visionary Halcyon Concept electric vehicle.

The supermaterial applications company that develops lightweight batteries for cars, planes, and spacecraft stated it will incorporate Lyten 800V lithium-sulfur EV batteries in Chrysler's Halcyon concept EV. These batteries do not use nickel, cobalt, or manganese resulting in 60 percent lower carbon footprint than today's best-in-class EV batteries.

"Just as Halcyon exemplifies the fully electrified future of the Chrysler brand, we believe our lithium-sulfur batteries represent the future battery platform of electric vehicles, sourced through entirely local supply chains and manufactured in the US, Europe, and eventually around the globe," said Dan Cook, Lyten's CEO and Co-Founder. "We've been able to dramatically accelerate the development timeline of lithium-sulfur through the discovery and commercialization of our 3D Graphene innovation."

In June 2023, Lyten opened its first automated lithium-sulfur battery production line in San Jose, CA, with the pilot line producing lithium-sulfur cells in both cylindrical and pouch formats. The production plant utilizes the same equipment and manufacturing processes as traditional lithium-ion batteries.

The company has confirmed in 2024, it will begin delivering commercial cells for its non-EV and government customers, consistent with its aggressive commitments to delivering this technology to the market.

Lyten has raised more than $410 million in funding to date, including investments from Stellantis, FedEx, and Honeywell. 


Stellantis invests in Lyten’s lithium-sulfur EV battery technology -  

Stellantis Ventures, the corporate venture fund of Stellantis N.V. announced that it has invested in a California-based material innovations company, Lyten Inc. (Lyten) to speed up the commercialization of Lyten's propriety 3D Graphene, and develop applications for lithium-sulfur batteries and vehicle sensing solutions.
