Tesla Collaborates with CATL to Develop Faster-Charging Battery Technology

CATL, the world’s largest battery manufacturer, and Tesla are collaborating on new battery technologies that could lead to faster-charging electric vehicle batteries. The founder of CATL shared in an interview with Bloomberg that they are working closely with Tesla on this development.

Despite challenges arising from U.S.-China trade disputes and restrictions on Chinese technology in American-made products, CATL is finding ways to work around these hurdles. Through licensing, royalty, and services agreements, CATL partners with other companies to license their battery technology for a fee. For example, Ford has reached an agreement with CATL to manufacture battery cells using CATL’s battery cell knowledge and services.

CATL is currently in talks with up to 20 U.S. and European automakers to potentially establish licensing agreements similar to the one with Ford. Additionally, CATL and Tesla are collaborating on new electrochemical technology to develop faster-charging batteries. Tesla’s goal is to retain its market share in the growing global EV battery market and to produce an electric vehicle priced below $25,000.

CATL’s founder, Robin Zeng, highlighted the potential for cost reduction in the $25,000 car aimed by Tesla. He also confirmed reports that Tesla plans to open a small battery-manufacturing facility in Nevada using CATL equipment, with the Chinese company’s staff assisting in setting up the equipment. These collaborative efforts between Tesla and CATL are paving the way for advancements in electric vehicle battery technology.
