Tesla will reportedly launch a low-priced, long-life battery for its Shanghai-built Model 3 sedan in a move that could help the USA automaker further reduce the car's price in the country. Apparently Tesla will first implement these new "million-mile" batteries in the made-in-China Model 3 and then deploy to its gigafactories worldwide. The automaker also has said it wants to supply electricity to consumers and businesses, but has not provided details. Ltd. (CATL) as a partner to co-develop the battery, which will rely on innovations such as low-cobalt and cobalt-free battery chemistries and the use of chemical additives, materials and coatings that will reduce internal stress and enable batteries to store more energy for longer periods, Reuters reported.
In February, Tesla and CATL were reportedly in advanced talks that could result in Tesla using the Chinese company's cobalt-free batteries in vehicles made at the US automaker's Shanghai plant. Tesla battery technology has always been the industry standard in terms of capability and cost, but according to Reuters, it is about to take a giant leap forward. The American electric carmaker also plans to implement new high-speed, automated battery manufacturing processes created to reduce labour costs.
China warns of retaliation over new U.S. visa rule
China deplores and rejects the erroneous move by the United States side, which is an escalation of its political suppression of the Chinese media, Zhao said.
CATL also has developed a simpler and less expensive way of packaging battery cells, called cell-to-pack, that eliminates the middle step of bundling cells. Dahn. According to a Reuters source, CATL will supply a new battery to Tesla for the Chinese oriented Model 3.
It's not hidden that Tesla has invested significant capital in China. For example, Dalhousie University has detailed a manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) crystal structure for battery cathodes that can resist wear over time. To add some perspective, when General Motors announced its new Ultium battery recently, it said it hopes to get the cost of its batteries below $100 per kWh by 2025.
Deandre Baker turns himself in on robbery, assault charges
Baker was a first-round pick (30th overall) by the Giants in the 2019 draft after starring at the University of Georgia. We have no further comment at this time", it said in a statement, according to ESPN .
The Reuters report also claims Tesla is continuing to ramp up its battery recycling capabilities through its Redwood Materials affiliate now headed by JB Straubel. Second life use of automotive batteries for energy storage is also a technology Tesla is working on.
