Breakthrough Chinese LFP battery can add 600km of range in just 10 minutes

Chinese battery presentationChinese battery-making giant CATL has launched its new Shenxing Plus battery at the Beijing motor show claiming it’s capable of adding as much as 600km of range after a short 10-minute charge and delivering a driving range of more than 1000km.

Impressively, CATL says both those figures are achieved using the cheaper, more stable lithium iron phosphate chemistry (LFP), with the CATL Shenxing Plus battery outperforming many more expensive nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) cells.

The battery is claimed to be both lighter and more stable in extreme charge/discharge scenarios, which means it’s safer too.
