Tesla battery supplier Catl says new design has one million-mile lifespan

If you bought Tesla and held , good for you! I cashed in mid - 2018 for $348/share I bought on IPO and just after IPO for $17 - $22.5.

Tomorrow I go to test drive my Tesla Model Y. And although I am tempted to hold off based on news today, I am going to go through with it now and if the batteries are that good I can trade mine in on a new one. And I get to drive my Tesla now. If I drop dead suddenly I might miss my dream. 

It looks like Tesla, who co-developed these new batteries, and the EV industry in general, now have million mile batteries that can now go as long as the electric motors in Tesla EVs. The million mile drivetrain!!

And today the UK announced they are moving up the elimination of the sale of new fossil fueled vehicles to 2032, 12 years from now.

Excerpt:

"A Chinese car battery-maker says it is ready to manufacture a product capable of powering a vehicle for 1.2 million miles (two million kilometres) across the course of a 16-year lifespan.

By contrast, most automakers only offer warranties ranging from 60,000 to 150,000 miles over a three to eight-year period on their cars' batteries.

Contemporary Amperex Technology has not revealed who it intends to supply.

But it was previously reported that the battery was co-developed with Tesla.

The latest news was revealed in an interview Catl's chairman gave to the Bloomberg news agency.

"If someone places an order, we are ready to produce," it quoted Zeng Yuqun as saying.

He added that it was set, however, to cost a 10% premium over the batteries it already supplies.

The company signed a two-year deal to supply batteries for Tesla's Model 3 cars in February. Its other clients include BMW, Daimler, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo.

In February, the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told the BBC that the UK might ban sales of new petrol and diesel cars as soon as 2032, to help meet the UK's zero-carbon emission targets.

The Sunday Telegraph reported yesterday that the government is considering offering drivers up to £6,000 to swap their existing cars for electric models next month as part of efforts to boost the UK's electric car manufacturing industry.

The Nissan Leaf and Mini Electric are made locally, and Property Week has reported that Tesla is also considering opening its own "gigafactory" car battery plant in England."
