GAC Aion with fast charging speed comparable to refueling

Early this year, GAC announced its new super fast charging battery technology.   Compared to the current fast-charging time of pure electric models, which takes 30 minutes to recharge to 80% of battery capacity, this graphene-based battery has a 6C fast charge capability, combined with a 600A high-power charger, can be recharged to 80% capacity in...

CATL reveals its first generation sodium-ion battery

Today the giant Chinese battery cell maker CATL revealed its first generation sodium-ion battery and it’s better than I expected.   Let’s see some highlights of the press release.   Based on a series of innovations in the chemistry system, CATL’s first generation of sodium-ion batteries has the advantages of high-energy density, fast-charging capability,...

CATL will reveal its first sodium-ion battery tomorrow

Tomorrow the giant Chinese battery cell maker CATL will finally reveal its first sodium-ion battery (SIB).   SIBs are potentially much cheaper to produce than lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). Nonetheless, initially, with small-scale production the cost won’t be impressive, it will be roughly the same as current LFP (LiFePO4) cells that are more energy...

ORA Good Cat gets two LFP battery options

Previously, the ORA Good Cat had a LFP (LiFePO4) battery in the standard range version (401 km), but the long range version (501 km) was only available with a NCM battery. Fortunately, recent Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) homologation documents show us that a LFP battery will also be available in the long range version.  ...

SVOLT has its own version of BYD Blade battery

SVOLT is a Chinese battery cell maker subsidiary of the giant Chinese automaker GWM (Great Wall Motors), that besides LFP (LiFePO4) and NCM is already producing NMx (LNMO) battery cells.   SVOLT has its NMx battery cells available in two different sizes. One size is compatible with Volkswagen MEB platform and the other size is a long cell – alternative...

BYD Dolphin: range and battery capacity exposed

We finally know the exact figures of range and battery capacity for the BYD Dolphin, thanks to recent documents published by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT).   Let’s see those figures.   BYD Dolphin standard range version Length: 4.070/4.125 mm Wheelbase: 2.700 mm Width: 1.770 mm Height: 1.570 mm Gross...

ORA Cherry Cat debuts NMx cobalt-free battery from SVOLT

The Cherry Cat is the first SUV made by ORA, which is the affordable brand of the giant Chinese automaker GWM (Great Wall Motors) that also owns the battery cell maker SVOLT.   This will be the first electric car to use the NMx (LNMO) cobalt-free battery cells from SVOLT. Moreover, there will also be a version with LFP (LiFePO4) battery cells, which...

Developments on LFP battery technology

Nowadays, good electric cars already have enough range for most people, but they are still much more expensive than their ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) counterparts. This is why LFP (LiFePO4) and CTP (cell-to-pack) are extremely important technologies to make electric cars mainstream. Automakers that don’t plan to use these two technologies as soon...

BYD Dolphin (EA1) is great inside and out

Audi’s former design director Wolfgang Egger keeps doing an impressive job at BYD. Long gone are the days when most Chinese cars were ugly, and the ones that looked nice were carbon copies of Western cars.   Making BYD electric cars more appealing to European customers is now the main mission that the German design director has at hand. I have been...

Stellantis delays affordable electric cars until 2026

Stellantis EV Day 2021 was embarrassing. The 3 hour video presentation was all about putting together multiple nonsense commercials and delaying the introduction of affordable electric cars.   First, let’s see the highlights of the press release.   Plans to invest more than €30 billion through 2025 in electrification and software, while continuing...
