World’s no. 2 electric carmaker goes nickel, cobalt free | China’s BYD confirmed that it is going all-in on LFP (lithium-iron-phosphate) batteries, scrapping NCM (nickel, cobalt, manganese) technology from its model line-up entirely.

  1. I expect to see a lot more of this. NCM will be the high performance chemistry used in high end luxury and sports cars, LFP will be the standard chemistry used in the cars that most of us will actually be buying.

    There is plenty of hype about replacing ever more of the cobalt with nickel, but nickel isn’t really that much cheaper than cobalt. If we want to see cheap batteries, they will need to use cheap and abundant raw materials.

  2. I used LiFePo4 batteries (i guess everybody is calling them LFP batteries now) in my converted electric car back in 2012 because they were so stable and durable. Im glad to see they are getting more love from the auto industry!

  3. Can’t wait for the LiFePO4 patents to expire in 2022 so they can start getting manufactured outside of China. They should be cheaper, buy they’re not.

  4. BYD seems content to produce cheaper cars with lower range in an attempt to build marketshare. I think that is a good strategy in China.

  5. BYD as a company seems very formidable. But why its valuation is nowhere close to NIO?
