CnEVPost Newsletter: NIO files to use semi-solid-state batteries; Li Auto Q1 revenue beats expectations
NIO's models are finally close to being able to use semi-solid-state batteries, with the EV maker filing to add WeLion as a battery cell supplier in three models.
Li Auto expects to deliver between 76,000 and 81,000 vehicles in the second quarter, meaning a total of 50,319 to 55,319 vehicles for May and June.
The true test will be how sustainable this run-rate is in the second half of this year, Edison Yu's team said.
The new BYD Seal starts at RMB 189,800, down RMB 23,000 from its predecessor's RMB 212,800.
The Yangwang U8 has a total weight of 3,985 kg and is equipped with four electric motors, each having a maximum power of 220 kW.
The Chaser 07 is about the same size as the BYD Han PHEV and will target the RMB 200,000 to 250,000 hybrid market.
From January to April, the Model Y sold 121,407 units, making it the second-best-selling new energy SUV in China during this period.
Eve Energy sealed a battery cell supply relationship with BMW last September to supply large cylindrical lithium-ion cells for the latter's Neue Klasse line of vehicle models.
Demand for NEVs is expected to pick up in the second quarter as lithium carbonate prices stabilize, according to analysts at CITIC Securities.
