SVOLT unveils cobalt-free battery pack
SVOLT a battery systems manufacturer has unveiled a cobalt-free battery pack at the Chengdu Motor Show in China. It is the first company to make a cobalt-free battery that has reached series production claims the company.
SVOLT cobalt-free battery
The company says that it is a “high-tech enterprise in the global EV battery industry,” which is specialised in batteries and battery packs. SVOLT’s cobalt-free battery pack has been successfully implemented in the ORA Cherry Cat EV under the Great Wall Motors umbrella.
This battery pack had been in road testing in the ORA prototype since 2020 and will now debut in EVs sold in China. We don’t have many details of where and in which electric vehicles will be used but it said that SVOLT cobalt-free Pack will use standard platform MEB modules, aerospace-grade thermal insulation materials, and has a lightweight design.
The cobalt-free pack can reach a total of 82.5KWh of electricity and an energy density of 170Wh/kg by which it can provide a range of 600 km (373 miles) under normal temperatures. It can accelerate 0-100 km/h in just 5 seconds.
Although the other manufacturers such as Tesla and Panasonic had already removed cobalt from their battery packs and as well. Tesla removed cobalt from its lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries last year for the Standard Range Model 3 in China alongside CATL.
Panasonic aims for high energy density & cobalt-free batteries
Last year, Panasonic had announced that it will boost the energy density of the EV batteries it supplies to Tesla by 20% in the next 5 years. It aims to provide a cobalt-free battery by 2022-2023. In electric vehicles, the achievement of greater battery density is an important part. The more energy can be stored in the battery, the lighter the battery pack lighter will be the electric car.
