AISIN to Introduce Remanufactured Hybrid Battery at AAPEX

AISIN’s new program will initially be introduced and evaluated in Southern California for a period of six months.

AISIN announced that it will introduce its first-ever hybrid battery at AAPEX 2023 in Las Vegas.

AISIN will be showcasing the battery and other products in booth A4657.

“We’re excited about this new venture and confident that we’ll be able to assist thousands of hybrid-vehicle owners who may encounter low performance and low fuel economy due to battery degradation and loss of battery capacity,” said Dwayne Bates, vice president, AISIN World Corp. of America, Aftermarket Division. “When a battery is recycled, it comes back like new and helps to provide optimum vehicle performance.”

Bates added that AISIN’s new program will initially be introduced and evaluated in Southern California for a period of six months. He said he anticipates a successful launch with the goal of a nationwide rollout in 2024. The initial trial is scheduled to begin in November.

AISIN’s remanufactured batteries are meticulously crafted to meet OEM specifications and will likely set new industry standards for quality and reliability, Bates asserted.

Each module undergoes a rigorous array of tests, guaranteeing its health and capacity before assembly, and remanufactured to meet the stringent standards set by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Society of Automotive Engineers and the U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium Testing Standards, according to the company.

“Our customers know that if a product carries an AISIN or ADVICS logo, it’s nothing less than exceptional,” he said. “We’re absolutely committed to quality, reliability and sustainability. And this new program is a testament to the company’s dedication to reducing waste and promoting carbon neutrality.”

Though the market may widen to other vehicle brands, AISIN remanufactured hybrid batteries will initially be sold to qualified installers and technicians for the repair of Toyota Prius vehicles.

AAPEX will take place Oct. 31-Nov. 2 at the Venetian Expo in Las Vegas.
