No electric cars get these batteries, says the director

At the Chinese CATL, they work well enough with the so-called solid state batteries. But the batteries, which have been talked about for years, are long overdue, admits the director.

Toyota has been talking about them for years.

In just a little while, series production of electric cars with super batteries would begin – that is, with the so-called solid state technology, or in Danish, solid-state batteries.

In just a little while, the batteries, which have both a longer life and greater energy density, would be here. The Japanese have been saying that for years.

But now the battery manufacturer CATL says that the solid-state batteries have long prospects. At least for electric cars for private individuals.

The Financial Times writes that.

Because even though Robin Zeng, who is both the director and CATL's founder, says that solid-state batteries can double the range of electric car batteries, the technology just isn't there yet. And not at all at a level where it makes commercial sense with a serial production.

The cells in the batteries CATL develops simply cannot meet the demands the company has for the technology. Well, not yet.

Therefore, motorists can also throw a white stick at the idea that next year there will be an electric car with half as expensive and twice as good a battery in the traffic.

In the interview, Robin Zeng also adds a bit about the dangers that are still associated with the technology. If a solid-state battery is ruptured in a car accident, toxic lithium hydroxide can be released.

The announcement from the Chinese comes as something of a surprise, as CATL said as recently as February that it would join forces with a number of other battery manufacturers to create a supply chain of solid-state batteries as early as 2030.
