China’s CATL to start mass production, delivery of M3P batteries this year

SHANGHAI (Reuters) – Chinese battery giant CATL plans to start mass production and delivery of batteries based on a new materials technology, M3P, which will perform better but cost less than nickel and cobalt-based batteries, its chairman said.

Zeng Yuqun made the comments in an online investor briefing on Friday.

M3P batteries will have greater energy density and perform better than lithium-ion phosphate batteries, a market CATL dominates, but will be cheaper than nickel and cobalt-based batteries, he added.
