The key to consistent automotive electrification is powerful, reliable and durable battery technology. Deutsche ACCUmotive GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 2009, as a joint venture between Daimler AG and Evonik Industries AG. Their shared target was the realisation of automotive electrification with the help of powerful, reliable and competitive battery technology.

This makes Daimler one of the few car manufacturers worldwide to have developed, and since 2012 produced, its own batteries for automotive applications. The companys headquarters and its R&D location are in Kirchheim unter Teck, Baden-Wuerttemberg. Its production site is located in Kamenz, Saxony.

Company philosophy: invest in the drive system of the future. Energy storage is at the core of vehicle electrification. Electric drive systems for vehicles require battery systems that meet specific requirements of the automotive industry with regard to safety and environment, power, robustness, durability and cost. With a motivated team of specialists and executives, Deutsche ACCUmotive has advanced the development of these systems and considerably contributed to their progress. Its vision to become the leading supplier of HV batteries is based on the companys extensive expertise, many years of practical experience and an international network in the area of lithium-ion battery development.
