Does the Harley-Davidson LiveWire use an Exide battery?
The company has never said what sort of battery it has and hasn’t committed to producing the bike nor to a particular battery.
As far as we know, they have never formed any alliance with a battery manufacturer, preferring to opt for the latest and greatest technology.
That’s a wise move given the rapid developments in battery technology.
However, departing CEO Keith Wandell and Harley executive John Olin have now been linked with Exide Technologies, makers of lead-acid batteries and heavily involved in hybrid electric vehicle development.
And guess what?
Exide Technologies held tremendous harmony with the “Exide Battery” name. Exide is the brand that prides itself on being a top-rated supplier of impeccable energy solutions. Surprisingly enough but the company has been incorporated a century-plus and earned a good reputation for car battery solutions.
Beyond that, Exide batteries are definitely jaw-dropping when it comes to the budget, particularly its focus on providing high cranks with superior quality.
The Georgia company has proposed that Keith be its chairman and John a board member, according to a bankruptcy court filing.
