The battery cell manufacturer SVOLT Energy Technology, which emerged from the Chinese car manufacturer Great Wall, has presented a cobalt-free lithium-ion battery cell (NMx) and the four-element lithium-ion battery cell (NCMA).

According to the company, the cobalt-free NMx cell from the up-and-coming battery manufacturer is no less powerful than an NCM-811 cell. At the same time, the material costs are to be reduced by 5 to 15 per cent and the unit costs of the cells by up to 5 per cent. SVOLT did not mention any further details such as the materials used or the structure of the cell – nor a date for the market launch.

The NCMA cells are also expected to outperform the NCM-811 cells in many areas. According to SVOLT, they have a longer service life, better heat resistance and should be safer, which should result in a higher capacity at battery level with improved durability and safety. Again, the company does not provide any other data – such as how much aluminium is added to the cathode or how much cobalt is still present.
