Chinese EV battery maker Contemporary Amperex Technology (CATL) has introduced a new electric car battery that can provide a range of more than 1000 km on a single charge.
If this battery is used in electric cars, then it can save energy to a great extent and it will also be easier to bring electric cars for longer distances in less time. Let’s know about this new electric car battery.
Chinese company CATL, known as the world’s largest maker of electric-car batteries, said it would start making the next-generation “Qilin” next year. CATL said that the battery charges much faster than existing cells.
It is more secure as well as stronger. The Fujian, Ningde-based CATL, named after a mythical Chinese creature, has an energy density of up to 255 watt-hours per kilogram of Qilin batteries.
The company said in a press release that “the CTP 3.0 battery has an internal crossbeam, liquid-cooling plate and thermal pad integrated into a multifunctional elastic interlayer. It also features built-in micron bridges inside the interlayer that last for a lifetime.” It also flexibly adjusts to changes inside the cell while improving the strength of the battery.
Integrated energy unit made up of cell and multidimensional elastic interlayer. The driving direction creates a more stable load-bearing structure and thus increases the shock and vibration resistance of the battery pack.”
The company reported that it has secured 45 billion yuan of funding in a private placement of shares for research and manufacturing, as well as the production and upgrade of lithium-ion battery manufacturing in four cities in China.
CATL has faced a lot of trade this year from rising raw material prices as well as the trade deficit. The company’s first-quarter net income fell 24 percent from a year earlier to 1.49 billion yuan. The company did not disclose the 1.79 billion yuan of derivative liability, which is a post-listing charge.
