Whenever you look at a new design of pack it is important to some benchmarking of that design in the context of other packs. Any new pack will be measured against some key pack metrics and hopefully using a standard list of benchmarking data. Hence a key part of BatteryDesign.net is to collect together some of the benchmarking material available for some of the important packs.
- 2021 GT quattro – all electric flagship built on the J1 Performance platform shared with Porsche.
- Audi PPE – Premium Platform Electric – a hint at the new electric platform.
- GEN 6 Battery System – this introduces the 4695 and 46120 cylindrical cells, due to be launched in 2025.
- Blade – the cell to pack design based on LFP that achieves 150Wh/kg at launch. Used in the BYD Han.
- Qilin CTP 3.0 – CATL’s latest design for cell to pack. CATL suggests that this integrated system can increase the energy density to 255Wh/kg for ternary battery systems (NMC, NMCX etc), and 160Wh/kg for LFP battery systems.
- Ducati V21L Moto E Battery – the bike designed for the 2023 season of electric motorbike racing.
