Xpeng P7 has the longest range among China's battery EVs, including Tesla's - 706 km, or 439 miles.

The model listed in the MIIT announcement is the RWD version, with 196kW (263 bhp) maximum power, 390N·m (288 lb-ft) peak torque and 12.5kWh/100km power consumption.

The Xpeng P7 is equipped with the latest generation of the world's leading prismatic battery pack, with a pack capacity of 80.87kWh and an energy density of 170Wh/kg. It integrates E-motor, transmission and control system in its high-performance 3-in-1 electric drive system. Compared with the traditional distributed electric drive layout, this gives higher efficiency, a more compact structure, lighter weight, more uniform interior layout, and greater reliability. The volume of the entire electric drive system is only 18.6L, and power density reaches the industry-leading 2kW/kg level. The maximum efficiency of the motor system is > 95%, with the NEDC efficiency greater than 85.5%, leading to longer battery life and stronger performance.

BYD blade battery:


"Imagine an electrical vehicle battery that can increase energy density per unit of volume by 50%, improve safety and enable a car to travel up to 600 kilometres on a single charge.

It appears the latter has been achieved, as Chinese electric carmaker BYD unveiled a new blade-shaped battery on Sunday, saying that many carmakers have shown interest in the space-saving and safer product,

reported.

He Long, president of BYD’s battery business unit FinDreams, said, “Almost all carmakers you have heard of are in talks with us in terms of technical cooperation.”

He said the company has started mass production of the blade battery at its Chongqing plant, the report said."

"Still, many people are nervous about electric cars, fearing they will short circuit in a car wash or a heavy rain, or burst into flames in the garage at any time. Allaying those fears will be an important step forward for the EV revolution.

That’s why the

this week about its Blade Battery is important. The company says it can withstand all sorts of punishments that cause ordinary lithium battery cells to implode or explode — things like being penetrated by a nail, crushed, bent, heated in a furnace to 300°C, or overcharged by 260%."

"The new battery uses a lithium iron phosphate chemistry but does away with conventional battery-pack architecture. It will feature in the new Han EV, the brand’s flagship sedan that is scheduled to launch in June, and is said to deliver nearly 376 miles in driving range to go with a 3.9-second 0-62 mph launch time."
