The battery and charging performance of Nammi 01 is eagerly awaited. It will also be sold in a cheaper version with LFP battery.
China’s Dongfeng Motor will launch Nammi 01 next week. The first car with both sodium ion chemistry and solid electrolyte.
Dongfeng has been working on solid-state batteries since 2018 together with Ganfeng Lithium. The company actually operates in the lithium mining-processing sector. It will launch the first mass-produced model simultaneously with the Guangzhou Motor Show. The motor show will start on 17 November.
The company managed to keep the battery cost at a reasonable level with the solid-state sodium ion battery and achieved a charging speed that will provide a range of 200 kilometers in 8 minutes. Dongfeng Motor will bring the vehicle to the customer at around 13 thousand dollars. Although technical details are not yet clear, it is estimated that a hybrid chemistry is preferred in the battery instead of a full solid-state electrolyte.
Dongfeng Nammi 01 attracts attention with its use of in-wheel hub motors in addition to its battery. It will probably be equipped with the solution of Protean Electric, a British startup operating under Istanbul-based Bedeo.
We will be curiously waiting for the battery and charging performance of Nammi 01. The company will also sell a cheaper version with an LFP battery. Follow us for the new electrics to be introduced at the Guangzhou Motor Show!
