Svolt launches series production of its nickel manganese battery cells-nickel

The Chinese battery manufacturer Svolt Energy announced the start of its cobalt-free battery line in mid-May 2020. The battery technology should enable a range of more than 800 kilometers and up to 880 kilometers per battery charge, with a lifespan of more than 15 years or. 1.2 million kilometers. In mid-July 2021, the serial production of the nickel-manganese battery cells (NMX) starts.

It can thus be stated that the series production of the new NMX batteries is started on schedule. Already in January 2021, pilot production with 10 tonnes of cobalt-free cathode material in the battery cell factory in Jintan could be completed successfully. Since April, Svolt produces the cobalt-free cathode material in mass production.

The cobalt-free battery cells are offered first in two sizes. These come as nickel manganese battery cells (NMX) on the market, which consist of 75 percent of nickel and 25 percent of manganese. . These come completely without the heavy metal cobalt, which is otherwise used for the thermal stabilization of high-nickel battery cells (NCM). So that Svolt has so far the only company on the market, which has succeeded in bringing a high-nickel cellemia without cobalt to a mass-related industrial series maturity.

“Svolt is the first company that has succeeded in bringing a coccal-free high-nickel cell chemistry to mass-based industrial serial maturity. This has now proven that the team in China through the start of series production now. Our powerful and inexpensive battery cells without cobalt are an important milestone on the way to a sustainable electromobility.”- Kai-Uwe Wollenhaupt, President Svolt Europe & Vice President Svolt Energy Technology

How to understand the company Svolt succeeded in the cycle aging as well as the calendar aging of the NMX cells compared to conventional NCM battery cells significantly improve significantly. This can be more than 2.500 charging cycles are achieved. The first E vehicle, which is benefited from the new cells the Ora Cherry Cat by Great Wall Motors. From the end of 2023, the novel batteries can also be produced in the planned plant in the Saarland for the European market.
