To solve both in one stroke, piecework is being done by several Chinese factories that aim to transform the electricity sector with batteries that have large capacity and very short loading times.
A revolutionary battery
The problem with electric cars is theirs poor autonomy which means that we cannot make very long journeys without having to stop to recharge in the middle (with some exceptions in some models). In addition, the charging process, even with fast chargers, takes more minutes than it takes to fill the tank of a gasoline or diesel car.
These problems will be a thing of the past if we are already in the midst of one of the most interesting developments in recent times for change in the electric car market and make them attractive and not just an initiative to fight climate change.
Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. LTD, known as CATL, a Chinese giant presents its new project: the Shenxing, a LFP battery (lithium-ferrophosphate or LiFePO₄) that can recharge up to 400 kilometers of autonomy in just 10 minutes, which enables the recharging stop to just enough time to go out, stretch our legs a little and not lose us in the lots of downtime. In addition, it has a range capacity of 700 kilometers with a full charge, which is higher than the current average.
“We hope that through continuous efforts to improve technology and reduce costs, Shenxing will become a standard product.” applicable to all electric vehicles” Gao Han, Chief Technology Officer of CATL’s E-Car Business, told Reuters.
The Chief Scientist of CATL, Dr. Wu Kai continued: “He future of electric vehicle battery technology It must remain firmly anchored in global technological frontiers as well as economic benefits. “As electric vehicle consumers move from early adopters to early adopters, we must make advanced technology accessible to all and allow everyone to enjoy the fruits of innovation.”.
Autonomy prevents the purchase of an electric vehicle
The latest study conducted by Plenoil as part of its ‘Possible Transition’ project. This study shows that more than half of Spanish drivers (50.3%) do not consider buying an electric car in the coming years.
Among the main reasons for not wanting to buy an EV is its high price (61.3%), the lack of charging points (46.6%), the charging time (35.7%), the price of electricity (32.6%) and the idea that this types of cars are not the future (27.4 %). As can be seen, if the CATL battery continues, it joins other initiatives such as the battery of some of the latest Tesla models that can charge about 300 kilometers in 15 minutes.
