Abstract

Long battery charge times and low battery charge-discharge cycle life are the two major limitations holding back the commercialization of electric vehicles. In order to resolve these problems, a robust battery system was developed by Microvast Inc. The batteries can be charged in less than 10 minutes and rapidly charged and discharged up to 20,000 times, while still maintaining more than 80% of the original capacity. 6 City Buses utilizing the Microvast battery systems have been tested in commercial operation in Chong Qing, China for more than one year. The batteries are still in good condition. The improved Li4Ti5O12 negative electrode material gives the Microvast battery system its excellent properties.
