Sunwoda announces extra fast-charging battery
The Chinese battery manufacturer Sunwoda Electric Vehicle Battery has presented the SFC480, a particularly fast-charging battery that is to go into series production this year.
The new cells claim to be ready for taking charges at 480 kW and could offer ranges of 700 km, so Sunwoda. The SFC480 battery is designed for up to 50,000 charge-discharge cycles.
Vice president of Sunwoda, Zhang Yao, added that the company is continually improving the materials, structure and assembly techniques, and expects to improve the maximum range to 1,100 km by the year 2026. The company then expects the battery structure to evolve into CTC (cell-to-chassis) from the current CTP (cell-to-pack).
Since then, they increased technology collaborations with the help of Chinese EV manufacturer Geely, who launched a subsidiary joint venture through their subsidiary Jirun Automobile in 2021 also to develop batteries for hybrid vehicles.
Now, Sunwoda is taking their developments to the market, supported by two new battery factories, which were announced earlier this year.
