Yesterday, the World Battery Conference 2022 was held, where the leaders of automotive companies, battery manufacturers, mining and processing companies expressed their opinion on the current situation and the future development of the industry.
Li Shufu, chairman of Geely Holding Group, said his company is focusing on innovation in battery technology, battery materials, charging and replacement operations, photovoltaic green energy, recycling and other fields through joint ventures.
He said that Geely is developing battery packs that can meet the needs of users for a longer run, and the fast charging time for them will be reduced to 15 minutes.
Current fast charging solutions for electric vehicles on the market typically take between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Long charging times are the biggest problem for many new electric vehicle owners. If the fast charging time can be shortened to 15 minutes, the charging time will not be much different from driving a regular car to a gas station.
In addition, the chairman of CATL also stated at the conference that the energy density of the new lithium batteries can reach 255Wh/kg, which can easily cover 1000 kilometers.
China is expected to make another leap in electric vehicle technology soon.
