🟢IM Motors, a joint venture between SAIC Motor and Alibaba Group announced that the electric fastback L6, which will be unveiled at a technology launch on April 8th, will come with a 130 kWh solid-state battery.

🔌The dual-motor performance model IM L6 will offer a range of over 1,000 kilometers and will also feature an 900V electrical architecture. This will enable it to achieve high DC charging speeds of over 400 kW.

🔋Using a nickel-heavy chemistry on the cathode and its own developed silicon composite material on the anode, the Chinese company has significantly increased energy density and minimized the risk of battery combustion or explosion with solid electrolytes. IM Motors has been able to develop a lighter, longer-range, faster-charging, and safer car.

💰Due to the use of new-generation materials, solid-state solutions are much more expensive than current batteries, which will likely affect the price of the IM L6. However, as costs decrease in the coming years, we can expect to see #solidstatebatteries being more frequently used, at least in the short term, in performance-oriented and/or luxury models.
