Tesla confirmed that they are using cobalt-free LFP batteries in its half of electric vehicles over the
Tesla tries to prevent production interruption because of the continuous cobalt and nickel supply issue.
LFP batteries are a type of battery using lithium-ion phosphate as the cathode material, and graphitic carbon electrode with metallic backing as the node.
Tesla has still produced the lithium-ion battery cell with nickel cathode in the model 3 standard range.
Last year, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk said that LFP batteries also frees up more battery supply of lithium-ion chemistry cells using nickel cathode for Tesla EV.
Elon Musk believes that the density of LFP batteries has improved more and it makes sense to use the cheaper, cobalt-free batteries in its lower-end vehicles.
About LFP Batteries
LFP batteries are less expensive than other lithium-ion chemistry cell-like NCA, NCM that does not use cobalt, provide high cell life, more secure, fast charging.
