CATL introduces first generation of sodium-ion batteries; up to 160 Wh/kg; targeting >200 Wh/kg with Gen 2

Green Car Congress

(CATL) unveiled its first-generation sodium-ion battery, together with its AB battery pack solution—which is able to integrate sodium-ion cells and lithium-ion cells into one pack. The sodium-ion battery has a similar working principle to the lithium-ion battery; sodium ions shuttle between the cathode and anode.
