Amperex Develops Million Mile EV Battery

Amperex, the Chinese lithium-ion car battery maker, says it has developed a car battery that will last for two million kilometers, last 16 years and cost only 10% more than current batteries.

Current EV batteries carry a 150,000 mile, eight year warranty.

The new battery could bring down the cost of EV ownership by allowing a car owner to use it in two successive cars.

The founder and boss of Amperex, Zeng Yuqun, says he is ready to produce the million mile battery as soon as he gets an order.

Currently he has a contract supplying batteries to Elon Musk with whom he is said to have a good relationship calling Musk a “fun guy”.

Musk has talked about a million mile Tesla on the horizon and GM says it is near to a million mile battery.

Next year, it is predicted by Bloomberg that about 8% of Chinese cars will be battery powered and about 5% of European cars.

Amperex is building a plant in Germany and is expected to supply 70% of BMW’s battery requirement.
