New commercial vehicles’ battery launched by CATL in cooperation with bus maker Yutong. The main feature of the new product is the long lifespan, as the partners claim “a lifespan of up to 15 years and 1.5 million kilometers”, as reported on Elektrek. That adds: “According to the company, the new long-lasting EV battery has zero degradation through the first 1,000 cycles”.

CATL – Yutong launch new battery module

This new battery by CATL and Yutong will be adopted on Yutong electric commercial vehicles such as buses, light trucks and heavy trucks. Yutong is traditionally partnering with CATL when it comes to batteries for its EV vehicles. In 2022 the two companies extended their partnership with a ten-years agreement.

In an interview with Sustainable Bus held in late 2023, Yutong’s CEO Europe Jack Li said: “CATL is in the process of establishing a plant in Hungary with the objective of commencing production by the end of 2024. As a result, we are planning to procure battery modules from Europe in the future. To achieve this, we must secure robust sales to support our investment in localizing production. Timing of this strategy will depend on sales”.
