According to Digit News, CATL claims that the new batteries, called Qilin, have the highest volume efficiency in the world and can store up to 255 KWh/kg.

The manufacturer notes that the Qilin cells can easily provide as much as 1000 km of range and the battery can be charged from 10 to 80% in just 10 minutes.

Based on the claimed 1000 km of range, this means that within a short coffee break, you might be able to get as much as 700 km worth of range back. This will, of course, largely depend on the charging station.

CATL also mentioned the fact that the new battery sports a new cooling technology, which should allow it to be cooled more efficiently.

The Chinese battery-maker will start to mass produce the new batteries from 2023, and among the first car manufacturers that will be using the Qilin cells are Lotus, Roewe and Li Auto.

Since CATL supplies its batteries to other companies, such as Tesla, Volkswagen and BMW, we might see the new cells in more cars in the future.
