LiFePO₄ traction batteries lead recent releases

The latest products support more charging cycles, and a number come with battery management systems.



  • LiFePO₄ with extended life span: Traction battery suppliers in China are rolling out more LiFePO₄ variants amid the implementation of government policies encouraging production of new energy vehicles. The latest versions can support more than 2,000 charging cycles, in contrast to older releases that can be recharged only 1,000 to 2,000 times. In addition, some units come with battery management systems, which protect against short circuit, and overcharge and -discharge.
  • Larger R&D investment: Makers have increased allocations for R&D by 10 to 50 percent to facilitate expansions and the acquisition of patents. A portion of the budget goes to the hiring of additional technical experts. A few enterprises now have 100 personnel dedicated to product development.
  • Target applications & markets: Most companies are designing models for use in electric cars, buses and utility vehicles such as golf carts and forklifts. Export destinations include Asia and the EU.
  • Price forecast: With manufacturing outlay decreasing gradually, product quotes are expected to go down about 5 percent in the months ahead.
