Recently our main battery supplier CALB in China sent us their forecast regarding product and technology. From 2015 to 2020 their goals are:
- Energy density from 120wh/kg to 200wh/kg
- Cycle life from 4000 to 20000 recharges
- Calendar life from 8 to 25 years
- Price from $400/kWh to $150/kWh
To prove that they are right on track, CALB recently introduced their 72Ah CAM cell, with 30% better energy density than the the existing productline.If only half of this is going to be realized, EV’s will soon have more range then ICE cars. And that’s exactly what Elon Musk is telling us.
