Solo Advanced Vehicle Technologies (Solo AVT), a US vehicle hardware company has chosen American Battery Solutions (ABS) to develop the battery system for the SD1, Solo AVT’s battery-electric Class 8 long-haul truck with 500+ miles of range. Upon successful development, ABS will be the preferred high-voltage battery supplier for Solo AVT’s trucks.

Solo AVT is building the first ground-up heavy truck platform to be compatible with any autonomous driving software. 

ABS operates a 120,000 sq. ft. Innovation Center in Michigan and a dedicated 170,000 sq. ft purpose-built state of the art battery manufacturing facility in Ohio.

Graham Doorley, Founder and CEO, Solo Advanced Vehicle Technologies, says: “Part of the excitement of debuting our SD1 design is collaborating with innovative manufacturers in the industry to bring forth our mission of revolutionizing long-haul freight transportation. Partnering with ABS to design, create, and test a battery system that electrifies the market’s first clean sheet Class 8 truck is an essential part of this work. We look forward to partnering with ABS and pursuing the opportunity for battery-electric transportation with over 500 miles of range.”

“Electrifying long-haul freight movement is a critical step towards decarbonizing transportation. We’re proud to partner with Solo AVT as it leads the way in the long-haul truck industry,” adds Dr. John Warner, Chief Customer Officer, American Battery Solutions. “Developing a battery system for the SD1 not only accelerates the truck’s time-to-market – it will have an immediate impact on global sustainability initiatives, and, aligns with ABS’s expertise in developing next-generation battery systems that electrify underserved segments in the transportation sector.”
