Geely Holdings is the company responsible for presenting a new battery lithium iron phosphate battery, which is more energy dense, but also 40% smaller in size. However, the point to highlight is that it offers a better capacity to store energy even over time.

According to the brand, it can be used for 1 million kilometers, which is equivalent to 3,500 charges without reducing its retention capacity. On the other hand, when the ambient temperature is -30 degrees Celsius, it can retain up to 90.5% of its capacity. In extreme temperatures, the batteries current ones have lower performance.

It is Geely’s first electric car in Mexico.

On the other hand, its more compact design also offers greater safety for users in the event of a crash or if the electric car falls under water. Its ability to not burn, explode and resist damage is superior to a current lithium battery.
