Chinese Automaker Claims First Mass-Produced Solid-State Battery Car

IM Motors, the electric vehicle arm of SAIC Motor Corp, is making a bold claim. Their upcoming L6 sedan could be the world’s first production car with a solid-state battery.

  • IM Motors says the L6 will achieve over 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) of range on a single charge (though adjusted EPA estimates might be closer to 403 miles).
  • The battery is also said to be ultra-fast charging thanks to a new material combination and a high-voltage platform.
  • More technical details on the battery will be revealed on April 8th.
