A123 and BAE Systems: 300 Million Service Miles Traveled and Counting

Today A123 announced the expansion of its long-standing relationship with BAE Systems. The news is that A123 will supply lithium ion battery packs based on prismatic cells for BAE's HybriDrive® Series propulsion system. This is a new design that is initially expected to be deployed on city transit busses, and as part of the new agreement, A123 will also supply lithium ion battery packs for additional versions of BAE’s HybriDrive system for other commercial applications. 

But A123 has been supplying battery packs (based on cylindrical cells) to BAE Systems for the HybriDrive system for years. In fact, A123's battery packs are deployed in HybriDrive systems on nearly 3,000 buses globally that have amassed more than 300 million service miles to date.

Just how far is that exactly? Check out this infographic that puts this number into context:
