The race to the electrification of the automotive powertrain is on. The current drive to rapidly improve global air quality means battery electric vehicles will inevitably play an increasing role in the energy mix. Adoption is reaching a tipping point, but to accelerate the change automotive OEMs must demonstrate that the next generation of vehicles will meet the public’s expectations for range, power and lifetime cost.
Cathode materials are the key to unlocking the potential of the battery electric vehicle. We're scaling up our next generation high nickel cathode material eLNO® now, so it's ready for the technical demands of the future. It shows a step change in energy density and lower $ per kWh/cycle when compared to current materials on the market, all with lower levels of cobalt.
And eLNO is just the beginning. We collaborate closely with our customers to develop the battery materials of the future, looking to the next generation and beyond.
