CATL is a Chinese company that makes electric car batteries on behalf of automotive manufacturers. Last week it unveiled a new advanced battery pack it says can help cars achieve a range of just over 1 000km. No timeline has been announced as to when these will be installed in cars and which cars yet though.

Currently the best range we have been exposed to at IN4RIDE has been the BMW iX 50, which returns around 600km in the real world. The best of the rest include the Mercedes-Benz EQS and Jaguar I-PACE with between 450km and 550km each. We have heard of several companies like Toyota which claim they will be able to achieve 800km-plus in the next three years or so.
