Ion Energy has partnered with Ray Electric Motors in Spain for a cloud-based battery management and intelligence technologies.
The RAY 7.7 e-scooter is powered by a 10.7kW motor coupled to a 7.7kWh battery. The fixed high density lithium-ion battery promises to deliver a top speed of 125km/h and a range of up to 150km with fast charging support.
The vehicle is also capable of OTA updates for continuous improvements via the smart VCU and BMS. The BMS ensures the battery operates within it’s Safe Operating Area (or SOA) by continuously monitoring its current state and logging performance data in real-time.
Ion Energy’s FS-LT BMS was designed in France and includes automotive-grade safety features with wireless smartphone connectivity and connection to a proprietary cloud-based analytics platform. The platform will allow Ray Electric Motors to send over-the-air (OTA) updates to its scooters, continuously improving the life and performance of the asset.
In its first year, RAY will manufacture a limited set of 1000 vehicles and has plans to scale up to a minimum of 10000+ e-scooters by 2023. The company plans to target major metropolitan areas of Europe before expanding to the United States and other regions.

We believe Ion’s smart BMS & cloud analytics solutions coupled to RAY’s platform will offer exceptional experience to consumers in Europe and globally,” said Akhil Aryan, CEO & Co-founder of Ion Energy.
