• Around 18,000 LiFePO4 battery modules per year

• Cost around 2.7 million US dollars

• LiFePO4 batteries with many advantages

The now in operation, highly automated production factory in Brazil, where BYD already has two other factories, is to manufacture lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) battery modules for the Group's electric buses sold in Brazil.

 Rumor Mill Boils: Did Warren Buffett Secretly Buy Tesla Stock? Actually, star investor Warren Buffett is anything but a fan of growth stocks. But the rumor mill is currently seething: Did the value investor buy shares in the extremely highly valued electric car manufacturer Tesla? © Provided by Finanz.net DANIEL ROLAND / AFP / Getty Images • Apparently 50 million Tesla shares with unknown investor • Buffett and Musk bond long feud • Did Buffett still invest in Tesla? Just last week, star investor Warren Buffett filed the 13-F form with the US Securities an

Expansion if required

The new plant is located in Manaus, the capital of the state of Amazonas. Every year around 18,000 LiFePO4 battery modules are to be produced from the factory, which measures an area of ​​5,000 m2 and can also be expanded if required in the future. The cost of the project that has now been implemented is around 2.7 million US dollars. The battery modules manufactured in it are to be used for BYD's electric buses.

Overall, the now opened plant in Manaus is the third production facility operated by BYD in Brazil. In 2015, the Chinese electric car and battery manufacturer established its first Brazil-based factory to produce the chassis for electric buses for the Brazilian market. Two years later, in 2017, the second production facility was added - a system for photovoltaic modules. BYD is now following the path of LiFePO4 batteries with the further plant.

 Model 3: Tesla cancels cheap option with 2021 update Tesla has been delivering the 2021 versions of its electric cars for a few weeks. For Model 3 buyers, this apparently means that the $ 35,000 option is history. © dpa A Tesla Model 3. Tesla boss Elon Musk had emphasized time and again before the official launch of the Model 3 that he wanted to offer a particularly affordable option for the electric car. With a $ 35,000 Model 3, Musk wanted to conquer the mass market in the e-mobility sector.

This is why BYD relies on lithium iron phosphate batteries

Up to now, electric cars have generally been powered by lithium ion batteries. The US electric car manufacturer Tesla , among others, is investing a lot of resources in the research and development of lithium-ion batteries for its electric vehicles. But as the consulting company Accundu explains, LiFePO4 batteries offer a number of advantages.

For example, LiFePO4 batteries are less likely to overheat. In addition, they have high and stable charging currents, which among other things leads to short charging times. In addition, they have a long service life - in technical language one speaks of high cycle stability. According to Accundu, LiFePO4 batteries still have a remaining capacity of over 75 percent after 10,000 charging cycles. In addition, there are no toxic heavy metals such as nickel, cadmium and cobalt in a LiFePO4 battery. All metals used in it can be recycled up to 100 percent. Accundu sees the major disadvantage of the technology in the lower energy density. In order to achieve the same, accustomed performance with a LiFePO4 battery, a significantly higher number of cells is required, which in turn increases the price of the battery.

The BYD model Han, which came onto the Chinese market in July, is operated with LiFePO4 battery technology and has a range of 605 kilometers. In the strongest case, up to 494 hp should be possible with the electric sedan. Finanzen.net editorial team

Two in a row for Adam Cianciarulo.“For the first time, I’m almost at a loss for words!” Cianciarulo exclaimed. “Going 1-1 was huge for me. It’s a great accomplishment that I’m really proud of and something I wasn’t even able to do last year in the 250 class when I won the championship. We’ve worked really hard to get to this point, and even though I had a rough start to the season, all the hard work is paying off. My Monster Energy Kawasaki team sets me up in a position to win every week, so it feels good to bring home a win for them.
