An upcoming new revolution of the electric car industry, which may not leave any chance for traditional cars to survive, in light of a new discovery that removes all concerns related to this type of car.
The electric car battery giant, the main battery supplier for Tesla and Volkswagen, has developed a new car battery of two million kilometers.
Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. is preparing to produce the battery that lasts up to 16 years and 1 million km, said Zeng Yuqun, chairman of the company, which is headquartered in Ningdi Island in southeast China.
Currently, the warranty on electric car batteries covers about 240,000 km, or 8 years.
This breakthrough in battery life is a significant accomplishment, as the battery can be used in a second vehicle, raising the expense of owning an electric vehicle.
China said that if any supplier orders these batteries, his company would be ready for production without revealing the contract for the selling of these batteries. He pointed out that the price of these batteries is only 10 % higher than that of the batteries currently used in electric cars.
According to Bloomberg this type of battery will alleviate questions about electrical batteries, and cars with this form of rotation around the Earth can be around 50 times.
Admittedly, electric car companies such as Tesla and General Motors have announced that they are close to using batteries that last one million miles (1.6 million km).
