“The IEA’s Global Critical Minerals Outlook highlighted that Chinese battery company CATL had developed a fast-charging ‘Shenxing’ battery ‘capable of delivering 400km of range from a ten-minute charge.’ The battery is to be rolled out in electric vehicles later this year, the IEA said.

The report was written before CATL’s latest announcement last month, that it has developed a new battery, the Shenxing Plus, capable of ranges of 600 miles between recharges.

This means cars propelled by the new Chinese batteries would need refuelling far less often than most current EVs and at a fraction of the cost.”
