As part of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the two companies are also looking at the manufacturing of solid-state batteries in the country.

The batteries would find usage in Omega Seiki's range of electric vehicles, the company said in a statement.

The solid-state batteries offer high energy density without compromising on affordability.

Initially, as part of the partnership, C4V will be supplying bio-mineralised lithium mixed metal phosphate batteries (BM-LMP) to Omega Seiki. Such batteries have an energy density of 200 watts/kg which is 20 per cent more than the lithium ferrous phosphate batteries available in the market.
