Fisker: Secures 5GWh-year of NMC and LFP cells from CATL-secures

Fisker Inc. and Contemporary Amperex Technology Co Ltd (CATL) announced earlier this week that they have reached an agreement to use CATL battery cells in the first Fisker electric car, the Fisker Ocean. Under the agreement, CATL will deliver two different battery solutions, with an initial battery capacity of more than five gigawatt hours (GWh) per year, from 2023 to 2025.

The first battery solution uses a lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) cell chemistry, while the second approach features CATL’s latest cells based on lithium-ion phosphate (LFP) chemistry. Both companies have been working on battery solutions for the start-up’s debut electric car since 2020. The teams are currently engaged in extensive testing and validation at pack and vehicle level.

According to Fisker, the conclusion of the supply agreement with CATL is another important step in the development of the Fisker Ocean. By using multiple chemical systems and the development of an extremely efficient battery, you will be able to achieve the desired range for Fisker Ocean Sport and also to set standards for the long-distance versions of the Fisker Ocean, the company in its communication.

The Fisker Ocean battery packs not only meet the packaging requirements for the Fisker Ocean models, but also have additional features that allow direct charging via the optional solar roof. In addition, both battery solutions are designed to support peak charging powers of more than 250 kW. Fisker still plans to start production and delivery of the all-electric Fisker Ocean in November 2022. The later production version, with additional battery specifications and product features, is scheduled to be presented at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month.
