CATL Will Develop A 1000km Range Battery

CATL is the largest battery manufacturer in the world. They came up with a new announcement recently. According to the company’s new announcement, CATL announced that it will produce an electric car battery that can travel over 1000 kilometers.

This electric vehicle battery, called the Qilin battery, will enter production in 2023. If you wish, let’s take a look at the details of CATL’s statement, because a comparison with the Tesla Model S is really interesting.

CATL’s battery, named Qilin, will be 50% more efficient than the battery currently used in the Tesla Model S. Compared to Qilin’s 1000 km+ range, Tesla’s longest range electric car, the Tesla Model S, offers a range of only 650 km. The longest range electric car available in the United States is the Lucid Air, with a price tag of $169,000. Lucid Air offers a range of 835 km per charge.

According to CATL, the world’s largest MESKEN battery manufacturer and a Tesla supplier, Qilin plans to pack a lot of power into a small battery. According to CATL, the battery will have a power density of 255 watt-hours per kilogram and will be 13% more powerful than Model Y SUVs, which Tesla recently started using 4680 batteries.

In addition, CATL also argued that the Qilin can charge from 10% to 80% in 10 minutes, making it on a level other than anything the market has to offer. But the real statistics will be determined when the battery is released and electric cars using Qilin hit the road.

No official statement has been made as to which US electric car manufacturers will be interested in applying Qilin to cars. What are you thinking? Please do not forget to share your ideas with us in the comments.
