China BAK’s 100 units of lithium-ion high-power batteries will be used to power Chery’s electric cars, Ruilin M1, in the first half of this year.

Ruilin M1 is Chery’s first Lithium-ion solution electric vehicle.

China BAK said it will deliver lithium-ion batteries to Chery by the end of June 2012.

China BAK CEO Xiangqian Li said the company is expected to secure additional orders from Chery in the second half of this year.

"We also expect additional domestic customers to place orders for electric vehicle batteries in 2012," Li said.

Chery manufactures, markets, and exports passenger vehicles in China.
