Such batteries will not need to change to mileage 1,000,000 miles (1.6 million km). That is, the battery will be designed for the entire life cycle of electric models.
As informs on Thursday, may 21, Reuters, batteries modern electric cars, as a rule, serve for 160 000 – 320 000 km away. there are different estimates. In 2019, a CEO of Tesla Elon Musk has estimated the margin of safety actual generation battery 300 000 – 500 000 miles (480 000 – 800 000 km). Then he made a promise to create a battery that can withstand and 1,000,000 miles.
Regarding GM, the Corporation showed a new generation of batteries Ultium as recently as March this year. They get the capacity from 50 to 200 kW/h, to ensure the autonomy of up to 640 km and to disperse the electric car to the first “hundred” for 3 seconds. But now we are not talking about Ultium, and about the following variations of batteries.
Given that GM still does not manufacture even a battery Ultium, then expect the output to the battery with an expected mileage of up to 1 600 000 km will have at least several years. Thus, according to representatives of American corporations like the batteries “is almost ready”.
According to assumptions, a strategic partner of the GM in the creation and production of batteries will become the Chinese firm CATL
