CATL plans to build new battery factory in Shanghai



Chinese company CATL plans to build a large new car battery plant in Shanghai, hoping to strengthen its position as the largest manufacturer of batteries for electric vehicles. Reuters reported this in an exclusive publication, citing two informants “familiar with the situation.”

According to one of them, the plant’s capacity, defined as the total capacity of the batteries produced in a year, will be 80 GWh. For comparison: the production capacity of CATL is now estimated at 69.1 GWh. In addition, the company is already building a new facility with a capacity of 77.5 GWh.

The Shanghai plant will allow CATL to attract a larger and more diversified talent pool than in Ningde, southeast China, where the company is headquartered. In addition, the plant will be closer to Tesla’s Chinese production base. As you know, last year CATL became a supplier to the American automaker. The new capacity will strengthen CATL’s position in competition with Panasonic and LG Chem, which also supply batteries for Tesla’s electric vehicles.

According to informants, CATL is negotiating the construction of the plant with the leadership of Shanghai. It is unclear when a final agreement can be reached and when CATL hopes to launch the new plant.
