According to the first financial news, apple is working with a Chinese power battery manufacturer secretly developed automotive power batteries, confirmed that the U.S. auto project is not just software, as well as hardware. Apple may really be making a car.
One is the Silicon Valley global high-tech giant, and the other is a power battery manufacturer in Fujian, China. Apple and the Ningde era of new energy Polytron Technologies Inc (hereinafter referred to as the "Ningde era", also known as "CATL") is a project based on confidentiality agreements. According to sources close to the collaboration, the first financial services are being co operated in the field of batteries.
Amperex Technology Limited (hereinafter referred to as "ATL") is Apple's consumer electronics products, the world's largest battery supplier. The Ningde era was part of the parent company's ATL power battery division, which became independent power battery manufacturers in 2011. Ningde times founder Ceng Yuqun, President Huang Shilin and many other start-up shareholders have been ATL executives.
Apple did not announce any news of the cooperation with the Ningde era, while the Ningde era refused to respond to this. CCID Consulting, new energy director Wu Hui told the first financial reporter said, if Apple and Ningde era cooperate in power battery, it does not rule out the possibility of Apple to continue to build cars, one of the core components of automatic driving electric vehicles is the power battery.
At present, Panasonic battery has become the market leader in automotive power batteries, in 2017, Dalian Matsushita automotive power battery project officially put into operation in April 27th, with an annual capacity of 200 thousand power lithium-ion batteries. If Apple is also making a car, then the potential power battery suppliers are also likely to be in China, and even as Apple's mobile phone, most of the production lines are likely to be in China.
The main reason is that China's manufacturing industry under the guidance of the national "Made in China 2025" strategy. China not only has a good scientific research and investment environment, but also cultivate a large number of outstanding skilled workers. And in the production of materials, China's rich mineral resources, iron, copper, tungsten, molybdenum, aluminum and other important materials. And after years of development, steel, tungsten, molybdenum, copper and alloy smelting industry has been in the world advanced level.
In addition, some experts believe that clean energy vehicles will replace the existing fuel vehicles in the next ten years, but due to the problem of thermal power pollution, electricity is still not ideal for clean energy, perhaps solar energy is the cleanest energy source. In recent years, with the development of nano technology and thin film technology, people have found a variety of can be used for solar cell manufacturing materials, such as monocrystalline silicon, monocrystalline tungsten, monocrystalline molybdenum, zirconium tungstate film, tungsten selenide film, these are very valuable solar power materials.
