Electric two-wheeler maker, iVoomi Energy has announced that the company’s lithium-ion battery packs have received the AIS 156 authorisation under Amendment III Phase 1 from the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI). The company says its batteries meet the necessary safety, protection and performance parameters required for the ARAI certification.
Under the AIS 156 amendment announced by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) last year, the lithium-ion battery for electric two-wheelers needs to meet all essential safety norms including overcharge protection, an additional safety fuse, charger and battery communication and more. The company further said that it is working to meet the certifications under AIS 156 Amendment Phase 2 by April 2023 and will be submitting the corresponding documents to the ARAI this month.
