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

in Project HOPE2 years ago

I think that reducing costs for increasing profit margin is always something that is sought, but I am not sure if the use of obosoleta technology can be better than the development of new technological responses, maybe if, as long as you consider the time and the cost of Investigation and Development.

I think I have read that one of the most expensive minerals in the production of high-performance batteries was cobalt, I also remember that Musk had declared that he wanted to bring the cost of batteries for Tesla to almost nothing, in that sense I am not surprised news, but I didn't expect them to do a technological downgrade.

Greetings and welcome to Project Hope
