Fiat Panda Hybrid Fuel Cell/Battery Powered Unveiled
The pack employs proprietary Matrix and HAM technologies. Quallion's MATRIX technology increases a Lithium Ion battery's reliability and long-term costs. This system is a high power model with a large current output capability.
MATRIX technology is currently used in numerous military vehicles as a main application for auxiliary power. The technology is also employed as a starter battery for unmanned vehicles, HEV/PHEV and aircraft. Quallion's HAM technology (Heat Absorbent Material) provides structural strength and electrical insulation to battery operations.
"Quallion is focused on delivering technologies that reduce vehicle emissions and improve vehicle energy management and safety," stated Quallion President, Paul Beach. "Working with Fiat on the Panda hybrid prototype Quallion has created a battery that will significantly impact future hybrid vehicle engineering. Quallion's Matrix and HAM technologies maximize the vehicle's energy storage capacity while significantly increasing the vehicle's safety."
According to Quallion, the Panda Hybrid Fuel Cell/Battery powered vehicle showcases the following innovative technologies:
- An innovative line cathode (air compressor) specially designed and produced by the Fiat Research Centre
- The Lithium Ion battery pack, developed and manufactured by Quallion implementing its Matrix and HAM technologies
- The new stack fuel cell design developed and manufactured by Nuvera

Whoever appreciates an honest industrial ethics in defence of intellectual ownership should spread out the history reported in my blog. If the industries can afford unpunished to copy the ideas and defending it need very expensive legal action, to which target need the patents? How our young people can find intellectual courage if the economic potentates crush the rights of the single ones?
Do You have a good idea on as I could act for defending my rights? I beg You to leave a comment in my blog. Thanks and good time to everybody.
