Chinese automotive battery giant CATL has just unveiled the first LFP model (lithiumlithiumironironphosphatephosphate) capable of exceeding 1,000 kilometers of autonomy. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s also compatible with a new form of ultra-fast charging.

CATL (Contemporary Amperex Technology Limited) is today the world’s largest manufacturer of lithium ion batterieslithium ion batteries for electric vehicles, hence the importance of this announcement, made during the Auto China show in Beijing. Called Shenxing Plus, this LFP battery is the very first capable of exceeding 1,000 kilometers of autonomy. It is also very quick to charge. This battery offers users very long autonomy, more than the equivalent of a round trip between Paris and London. The goal is obviously to be able to travel long distances without having to worry about regularly finding a charging point.

More than 1,000 kilometers per charging cycle

To achieve this level of autonomy, cathodecathode of this battery has been designed to obtain the greatest possible energy density. Its one-piece housing optimizes the use of internal space, for an unprecedented level of energy density, exceeding for the first time the threshold of 200 Wh/kgkgwhich leads to a range of just over 1,000 kilometers per charging cycle.

But that’s not all. The new 4C ultra-fast charging technology developed by CATL allows it to travel nearly 600 km in just 10 minutes of charging, the equivalent of 1 kilometer per second. For this, the manufacturer has taken care to widen the area of overcurrentovercurrent terminals in order to quickly dissipate the heatheat during high current charging.

In addition to the production of these new batteries, CATL will launch into the constructionconstruction an ultra-fast charging network. These batteries should quickly equip future models of Chinese cars and CATL plans to bring together the various owners of Shenxing ultra-fast charging vehicles into a “club”, offering them roadside assistance, inspection and maintenance services. batteries, as well as other services.

The symbolic mark of 1000 kilometers of autonomy reached augurs a new era of ultra-fast charging for the entire industry.
