A Legacy of Industry Leadership in Electric
Vehicle Testing

For OEMs looking to test their batteries in simulated “real-world” driving conditions, AV offers battery and vehicle testing by EV development experts using industry-leading vehicle and advanced battery testing equipment. Want to test your vehicle, battery, or battery management system (BMS) for DC fast charger interoperability? Vet your technology with the company that built its reputation on high-powered EV fast charging.

The Pedigree

AV has a long history of leadership in third-party battery testing and design. We’ve been providing customized long and short-term battery evaluation for a wide variety of chemistries since 1985. In fact, our battery simulation testing equipment has become an industry standard used by other interoperability testing facilities.

Our Lab Operations

Our dedicated 5,000 square foot lab space offers 24/7 operations, remote monitoring capability, and a full-time staff of battery, chemical, and electrical engineers, energy storage specialists and battery test technicians. We’ll customize testing to your application, validate the precise parameters you specify, or recommend state-of-the-industry parameters in conjunction with performance objectives laid out by your development team. From individual cell testing to module and battery packs and simulation of real-world driving conditions, few facilities can offer AV’s range of testing capability.
