Tesla has made significant progress in rethinking its battery cell and is well along the way to an expected improvement of 56% in Tesla’s total cost per kWh. Tesla has announced that it is not trying to cut purchases from its suppliers and encourages them to produce more. They are simply looking into and creating a new model that could benefit all stakeholders. Tesla explains that it only wants to accelerate growth in the battery scene. Panasonic and LG, both companies that supply Tesla, are working on this new battery. They hope to start mass production soon to feed the Tesla line. Electric cars are more expensive than gasoline cars due to their cost of production. And it is just what this new line is hoping to address to reduce the cost of buying an electric car.
The 4680 battery cell is a single cylindrical unit, 46mm wide and 80mm tall. The larger overall size allows for five times more energy storage capacity than the last update from Tesla, 2170 batteries. In addition, the battery is a tabless electrode, cobalt-free lithium battery that increases EV supercharging capabilities. Cobalt mining and using batteries has environmental challenges, and this new idea of a cobalt-less battery means a 90% recyclable battery. This is great news for the environment.
The five-step plan of cutting cost into half is categorized as follows; Cell Design, Cell Factory, Anode Materials, Cathode material, and cell vehicle integration.
Tesla's mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy. Tesla was founded in 2003 by engineers who wanted to prove that electric cars can be better, quicker, and more fun to drive than gasoline cars. Elon Musk launched the Tesla company to accelerate sustainable transport by bringing compelling mass-market electric cars to the market as soon as possible.
This mission is the backbone of Tesla's successful business model. It’s fast assembling timelines, continuous production capacity enhancement, and the constant evolution of manufacturing of products. This strategy means approaching all the business models with identifying the lowest denominator and producing it from scratch. The company is always looking for ways to cut costs and corners to make more and waste less.
The battle line of the next generation of EV batteries seems to have been drawn. Tesla's 4680 may seem to be in the clear lead, but Ford and BMW seem to be moving in another direction with the hope of catching up. The supplier of Ford and BMW, Solid Power, announced the future for them in solid-state batteries. The two companies have shown immense support to their supplier and have led this $130M venture funding. The significant advantage of these solid-state batteries is that they involve high-capacity energy storage devices that replace the gel electrolyte on conventional cells with a solid conductive material. As a result, the solid-state batteries will have better energy density and better safety. The one catch going into solid-state is that it is expensive and probably will cost so much that they intended to reduce the cost of cars will not be achieved. Still, both companies are excited to be in the race towards investing in a new direction like their top rival, Tesla.
