Which battery cells are used in Bosch eBikes?
Bosch eBike Systems does not purchase any raw materials such as lithium, but buys them as part of the cells from lithium-ion cell suppliers. Cylindrical lithium-ion cells are used in Bosch eBike batteries. The cell technology is very similar to the cells used in some electric vehicles. About 5,000-8,000 cylindrical cells are used in an electric car, compared to just 40 to 60 for the most common eBike batteries. Thus, one electric car corresponds to an average of about 130 eBikes in terms of the number of cells used.
