Recently, sources said that BYD will officially supply Tesla blade batteries, “Tesla has officially placed a purchase order for 204,000 units per year of Verdi blade batteries (model C112F), mass production in March this year.”The tesla model with the blade battery is likely to be tesla’s new entry-level model, starting at 160,000.Zhu Xiaotong, tesla’s global vice president and head of Greater China, confirmed that Tesla’s next new car will be designed, developed and manufactured at the Gigafactory in Shanghai, and gradually sold around the world.Unlike previous Tesla models, which were built and marketed at its Fremont, Calif., factory, the car will be built in China before being introduced abroad, suggesting it will be tailored to the needs of the Chinese auto market.The car, likely to be called the Model Q, is expected to cost between $25,000 and $30,000.Considering the price of Tesla’s models in The Chinese market, it is relatively low in the global market.Therefore, the price of this car in China will be very competitive.In addition, the car will be powered by BYD’s blade battery, which has impressed Tesla in two aspects: safety and cost.There is no need to say more about the safety of the blade battery. The thermal stability of the blade battery is obviously stronger than that of the ternary lithium battery.In terms of cost, the blade battery uses lithium iron phosphate battery. Compared with ternary lithium battery, the cost of the vehicle battery pack will be reduced by 30% under the same range.It’s hard not to be tempted by the safety and cost advantages of blade batteries.According to the data shows that with the outbreak of the byd blade battery, in 2021, byd, power battery installed capacity big eruption, according to the 2021 global power battery installed capacity charts, byd, ranking the world’s fourth, realize the installed capacity of 26.3 GWh, year-on-year growth of 168%, if work with tesla, under the condition of the capacity of problem solving,With Tesla’s cargo capacity, BYD’s installed capacity is expected to increase by a large margin.Therefore, the cooperation between BYD and Tesla can be said to be a win-win situation.In addition to Tesla, Toyota, FAW, Hyundai, Red Flag and other car companies have also put forward the intention to purchase blade batteries from BYD.To be sure, BYD’s blade batteries in Tesla’s models, with a starting price of 160,000 yuan, will set off a storm in the new energy vehicle market, which may make life difficult for other car companies.
