Battery development is moving forward very rapidly in order to offer electric cars ever greater range. Chinese companies are among the main protagonists of this important work. In recent times, “ interesting news has arrived regarding Gotion High-Tech which presented the new L600 Astroinno battery which on paper has very interesting characteristics.

IN PRODUCTION IN THE 2024

Apparently, he already has the job. passed all the safety tests and if there are no hitches, mass production will start. in 2024. Today, batteries equipped with LFP (lithium iron phosphate) cellsinterest more and more; to the automotive industry thanks, above all, to their lower costs. However, these accumulators offer "performance" lower than batteries with NCM (nickel-cobalt-manganese) cells. As we know, for example, they have a lower density than energy.

Gotion High-Tech has therefore developed a new cell of the LMFP type (lithium-manganese-iron-phosphate) which allows to overcome some limitations of LFP batteries, maintaining their benefits such as lower costs; low compared to the accumulated NCM. Therefore, the Astroinno L600 LMFP battery cell has a density; energy equal to 240 Wh/kg.

The company's work was not limited only to the development of the new cell as important steps forward were also made in the architecture of the entire battery pack. Gotion reports that it has reduced the number of structural parts in the battery pack by 45%. The wiring has also been reduced, from an overall length of 303 meters to just 80 metres. Thanks to these and other improvements, the cell/pack volumetric ratio has reached 76% and the density has increased. The energy of the pack has reached 190Wh/kg.

Without having to use NCM cells, the Astroinno battery pack from Gotion High-Tech is the most energy efficient. capable of offering electric cars a range of 1,000 km (140 kWh battery). Furthermore, the battery, according to the company, is capable of achieving 1,800 18-minute quick-charge cycles.

The company expects its LMFP battery to cost $500. 5% per kWh less than a conventional LFP battery (about 20-25% less than NCM ones). Therefore, for Gotion, batteries with LMFP cells could be able to replace those with NCM cells by offering similar performance but at a lower cost.

Among the first manufacturers who could benefit from this new battery there is Volkswagen which is the largest shareholder of Gotion High-Tech since the end of 2021.
