BYD: We Will Soon Supply Elon Musk With Batteries webfi network

BYD will soon supply batteries to Tesla, said Lian Yubo, the company’s executive vice president and president of its automotive engineering research institute, in an interview with Kui Yingchun, host of state-owned media CGTN, according to a video of the interview released today.

In a new interview on a state-owned media channel in China this week, Lian Yubo, executive vice president and president of BYD’s automotive engineering research institute, was asked if he sees Tesla as competition.

He responded (via cnevpost):

Tesla is a very successful company no matter what, BYD respects Tesla and we admire Tesla. We are good friends with Elon Musk, and we will soon supply him with batteries. We are friends.

The new cells use LFP chemistry, and are much safer. Here is why these new BYD Blade batteries are safer.

BYD wrote in a press release:

While undergoing nail penetration tests, the Blade Battery emitted neither smoke nor fire after being penetrated, and its surface temperature only reached 30 to 60°C. Under the same conditions, a ternary lithium battery exceeded 500°C and violently burned, and while a conventional lithium iron phosphate block battery did not openly emit flames or smoke, its surface temperature reached dangerous temperatures of 200 to 400°C. This implies that EVs equipped with the Blade Battery would be far less susceptible to catching fire – even when they are severely damaged.

BYD Tesla battery supply. BYD to supply batteries to Tesla. Tesla to use BYD Blade batteries in its cars.

    Great news. I believe this is a win-win business. Chinese gets valuable tech (most probably not the latest and greatest but still good enough) and Tesla gets all what China has: market, materials, strong workforce and plenty of talents.

    Tesla's body is built to hold there new battery format and the press,cooling are not made for blade batteries This BYD interview took place years ago apparently. Look at Elon's age on the.video.A partnership between the 2 companies would be benift both.A combination of 4680 and blade batteries would be great

    I seriously think Elon should take Richard Kidd onto his team, that's Rich Rebuilds Tesla EV youtube chanel, an excellent chanel about upcycling and recycling crashed and destroyed into new projects, he is currently on top of my youtube favourite play list

    From the analysis I saw hours ago, Stock market are no longer lucrative anymore, firms are shutting down due to lack of money, stimulus haven't been paid yet, notwithstanding all these, I earn $16,700 from my return of $3,000 bi weekly, I grateful I had to invest

    Who cares they also have deals with other battery companies

    Tesla had the factory/tesla toronto/to make the machines needed to produce the blade battery and can supply byd with the machinery. Byd is opening several battery plants in the next year. Partnership helps both make money

    Elon runs on batteries supplied by BYD???

  • faramarz mokri on June 8, 2022

    You have a nice back yard. I am happy for you.

    Until Tesla builds and rams their own new battery factories in Burlin and Austin which might take more than a year Tesla cannot wait till then and will buy their batteries from Chines battery manufacturers CATL and now BYD so its growth will not be hampered.I think that guarantees the supply of batteries for the next two years.
