At the battery day event held early this morning, Tesla CEO musk unveiled the new power battery So called。
Compared to the 2170 batteries currently Model 3/Y,Tesla says it's got five times more power and six times more capacity. After applied to Tesla, the range can be increased by 16% and the cost per kWh can be reduced by 14%.
On the progress of the new battery, Musk said at the meeting that it was working on factory's experimental production line
At present, Tesla mainly relies on purchasing batteries from Panasonic, LG Chemical and Ningde times. However, the shortage of Panasonic batteries has affected Tesla's capacity. Musk therefore also bombarded Panasonic for its backwardness, which responded that Tesla would increase its procurement and the battery supply would be exhausted.
This may be the main reason for Tesla's shift to internal batteries, which is currently led by Jeff Dahn, the leader of Tesla's battery project and a pioneer in lithium-ion batteries.
