[Frankfurt, Germany, September 3, 2019] Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Limited (CATL), a vital player in electric vehicle (EV) battery technology and manufacturing, will showcase cutting-edge technologies at the International Automobile Exhibition (IAA) in Frankfurt in hall 4.1, booth C07, from September 10-13. Demonstrating how “Innovation Powers Life,” CATL will showcase how its innovative e-mobility and battery solutions are supporting massive growth of the EV sector.

At this year’s exhibition, CATL will highlight its outstanding product series, including battery cells with both NMC (nickel manganese cobalt) and LFP (lithium iron phosphate) chemistry systems, as well as battery management systems (BMS) with smart calculation and high energy density battery packs. Meanwhile, four key CATL technologies and solutions will be featured at the booth’s interactive experiences:

  • Ultra-fast charging: Based on the ultra-fast-charging battery cells developed by CATL, both NMC and LFP batteries can be charged to 80% in 15 minutes, which will ensure 400 kilometers of driving mileage. This improves the travel experience through efficiency and convenience.
  • Long battery life: CATL is applying technology innovation to the improvement EV battery life, and has achieved a total battery life of 600,000 kilometers. Such a long battery lifespan also expands application and creates additional value for consumers by, for example, enabling commercial usage, vehicle-to-grid and secondary use.  
  • Environmental adaptation: Batteries developed by CATL can accommodate temperatures ranging from -30°C to 60°C to ensure driving sustainability. Its self-heating technology can help a battery warm up from -20°C to 10°C in 15 minutes, which enables EVs to go further in extreme work conditions.
  • Product safety: With safety as the top priority, CATL is investing heavily in systemic design to ensure its products are safe and reliable. Its multi-level safety protection design, including material optimization, product design, manufacturing, and after sales, ensures system integrity and mitigates safety risks for the vehicle.

“At CATL, we are dedicated to help European OEMs make the roll out of electromobility successfully happen by delivering most innovative & reliable technologies”, said Matthias Zentgraf, Europe Co-President, CATL. “As interest in e-mobility increases around the globe, CATL is fully engaged in the continuous development of new and improved technologies, that meet & exceed the needs of the worldwide car manufacturers in order to make the big roll out of pure electrified mobility happen and successful.”

As a global leader in the industry, CATL has 20 years’ experience in making world class, innovative and reliable lithium-ion batteries. Beyond that, CATL is continuously innovating to stay at the forefront of the field. At the IAA exhibition, CATL battery experts will share insights on technology trends and the latest EV battery solutions, including the challenges of existing products, BMS design and smart manufacturing at the CATL booth.
