FIAMM Energy Technology to supply Ford with Start&Stop batteries
For over 70 years, FIAMM has been the leading brand supporting motorists, with its Italian production of starter batteries for cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles intended for the principal car manufacturers and for the spare parts market.
FIAMM Energy Technology is therefore proud to announce that will provide its Advanced Flooded Battery (AFB) battery technology to power Ford Start-Stop vehicles.
AFB batteries are a proven advanced energy storage solution for Start-Stop vehicles in Europe, where FIAMM Energy Technology has manufactured more than 5 millions units since 2013.
FIAMM Energy Technology will supply the AFB batteries from Veronella (VR) plant in Italy.
AFB batteries used in a Start-Stop system help reduce fuel consumption as the engine shuts off when the vehicle comes to a stop in traffic or at a red light. The battery restarts the engine when the driver's foot releases the brake pedal, engages the clutch or press the gas pedal.
FIAMM Energy Technology estimates the European Start-Stop OE battery demand has overcome 16M units in 2019 and replacement market could reach 23,5 M units in 2025.
