The american elbilproducent has plans to launch a new lavprisbatteri with long life time in the editions of the popular Model 3, which is produced in China, later in the year or by the beginning of 2021.
The writing Reuters.com.
According to the media the battery will make it so cheap to produce an electric car that it can bring the price of an electric car down at a level corresponding to that of gasoline cars.
the Batteries are called the 'million mile battery', because it is expected that they are so efficient and durable, that they in their lifetime will be able to manage to run a million miles, that is 1.6 million kilometers.

the Foundation in the cheaper and long lasting batteries are innovations such as low-cobalt and koboltfri chemistry of the batteries. In addition, the use of chemical additives, new materials and coatings which will help to reduce the internal load and make it possible to store more energy in the batteries over longer periods of time.
the Battery is developed in cooperation with the chinese company Contemporary Amperex Technology Ltd (CATL).
Supposedly will CATL's and Tesla's new battery pack could be produced for $ 100 per. kWh, and, according to Reuters estimates leaders in autoindustrien that the threshold for electric vehicles can be produced for the same price as equivalent gasoline vehicles, is located at just 100 dollars/kWh.
Reuters can tell you that Tesla's batteriambitioner is soaring. So will the u.s. elbilfirma implement new automated processes associated with the production of the batteries, which should reduce labour costs and increase production in the huge so-called 'tera-factories', which is 40 times larger than the current giga-factory in the us state of Nevada.
An important element in Tesla's future batteriproduktion has also worked with the recycling of expensive metals such as nickel, cobalt, and lithium.
