Shai Agassi's Chinese rival

Abstract:
Located under the car's bonnet is an electrical motor which produces 75 kilowatts of power, which is then conveyed to the wheels through a sophisticated delivery system. But what really makes it unique is its power source. This is an innovative Lithium iron phosphate battery, the very same "wonder battery" around which Agassi's electric car vision has been built.

This battery is a technological marvel, developed in recent years through nanotechnology, with properties that make it highly suitable for vehicle motion. It is much more stable than standard lithium-ion batteries, it has a high level of energy compression, it does not cause excess harm to the environment, and it can be charged, theoretically, more than 3,000 times. That is more than enough for the typical 10-year period of car use. Most important of all, it is also supposed to be far cheaper to produce than regular lithium batteries because its electrodes are made from commonly available and cheap materials rather than exotic minerals. Another advantage is that it can be charged very quickly.
