The lithium-ion battery pack used in the new Murano Hybrid comprises a battery module that contains the cylindrical battery cells and a Battery Management System (BMS) in a single housing(1).

Looking to the future, Hitachi Automotive Systems will continue to contribute to the evolution of electric vehicles through the strengthening of electric powertrain products.
