Tesla appears to be using & agrave; the new batteries & quot; M3P & quot; developed by CATL on Model Y produced in China. This, at least, is; what the Chinese media reported. We had talked about these new accumulators recently. CATL unveiled the new batteries several months ago, but towards the end of July, they said they would soon hit the market.
Not many details were shared about the new batteries. We know that they adopt lithium-manganese-iron-phosphate (LMFP) cells with the aim of offering higher density energy compared to accumulators based on lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) cells. However, CATL did not want to reveal all the technologies used within the new batteries.
So, if the report is; correct, Tesla is preparing to use the new cells inside 72 kWh batteries for the Model Y produced at the Gigafactory in Shanghai. The supply is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2022. The first cars equipped with the new batteries should be delivered at the beginning of 2023. Obviously, like all reports, this too must be taken with due caution.
However, CATL is; a major Tesla supplier for Chinese-made cars, and rumors of will have been circulating for some time. to take cars equipped with LFP batteries with a higher density on the road; energy. Higher density which seemed to have come from the use of CATL's cell-to-pack technology but which could, now, come through the new M3P batteries.
The report also highlights another very Interesting. In fact, it is reported that Tesla would be interested in internally developing batteries with LMFP cells . The development times, however, would be long and, for this reason, for the moment it intends to rely on its suppliers such as CATL.
