Battery research: high energy cells also suit aircraft
Tesla’s battery research partner Jeff Dahn from Dalhousie University provides an update on the new approach to cells with significantly higher energy density, which was presented last year. These should be suitable not only for cars, but also for electric aircraft and drones. Weiterlesen
Can Tesla batteries cost less than 100 dollars per kWh?
Tesla’s project for the mass production of its battery cells is to be called Roadrunner and aims to reduce costs to 100 US dollars per kilowatt-hour. This 100$/kWh milestone has long been considered the key to electric cars achieving price parity with ICEs without subsidies. Weiterlesen
Tesla patents new battery cell chemistry
Tesla has submitted a new patent for improved battery cell chemistry under the title “Dioxazolones and nitrile sulfites as electrolyte additives for lithium-ion batteries”. This is intended to increase the performance and service life of the batteries as well as reducing costs. Weiterlesen
R&D break-through: Tesla battery making looks likely
Jeff Dahn and his team, who carry out battery research for Tesla, have published test results for a new battery cell that could have a life of 1 million miles (1.6 million km) and thus be suitable for Tesla’s planned robo taxis. At the same time, Tesla battery cell manufacturing appears to be well underway. Weiterlesen
