CnEVPost Newsletter: CATL, BYD sodium-ion batteries set to be in mass production this year
CATL and BYD's sodium-ion batteries to be put into mass production will both be a mix of sodium-ion and lithium-ion batteries, according to local media.
Lithium carbonate prices fell more than 50 percent in the first quarter, allowing CATL to see record net profit growth of 557.97 percent in the quarter.
NIO will add an additional 20 charging routes under the Power Journeys plan this year, after having completed 52 routes.
Innovusion and Fuyao have begun joint research that has resulted in LiDAR integration behind the front windshield with less than 10 percent attenuation of detection performance.
BYD's project in Chile is designed to produce 50,000 tons of lithium iron phosphate cathode material per year, with an estimated investment of at least $290 million.
This is 548 days after its first production vehicle rolled off the line on October 19, 2021. As of the end of March, Zeekr's cumulative deliveries since its inception reached 93,182 vehicles.
Deliveries of the Neta GT will begin in the first half of the year, and are expected to allow consumers to gradually begin to change the perception of the brand as low-end.
NIO's weak performance may be because it is on the eve of multiple product switches, as it will begin deliveries of the new ET7, new ES6, EC7 in May and will begin deliveries of the new ES8 in June.
