RE: Tesla in talks to use CATL's cobalt-free batteries in China-made cars - sources

in Project HOPE2 years ago (edited)

Hi @vlemon
I believe it is a step forward despite what many say is a step back from using technology that was being discarded. the difference is also in the materials for the production of those batteries that are less scarce than cobalt.

These batteries are composed of iron, phosphate, oxygen

Raw material very easy to get worldwide.

Greetings and welcome to our Project Hope

Pd. One of my dreams is to work for this company I mean Tesla


Indeed, thank you for your very interesting comment.
The issue for Tesla was to get the same quality of battery with less expensive raw materials in order to penetrate a market where the price point for an EV car is much lower.
I guess this is one of their solution to solve this issue.
