Mercedes EV Battery Plans

Mercedes shared some details about how they plan to scale their battery production for their EVs.

Daimler said it would establish a "global network" of nine battery factories at seven locations in Europe, North America, and Asia, primarily managed by battery-making subsidiary Deutsche Accumotive.

Mercedes is investing more than 1 billion euros ($1.1 billion) to fund this expansion.

Mercedes just announced that they're partnering with Chinese battery manufacturer CATL for the EQS' batteries.

Mercedes-Benz and Chinese battery manufacturer CATL today announced a “major” partnership to “create cutting-edge battery technology” and supply batteries for the upcoming EQS electric car.

Over the last few years, CATL has emerged as the leading battery supplier for electric automakers, not just in China, but around the world.

Now they are adding Mercedes-Benz to the long list of global auto partners.

Mercedes-Benz and CATL announced that they have entered “the next stage of their strategic partnership and will create cutting-edge battery technology in support of the high-volume electrification of the Mercedes-Benz model portfolio.”

The two companies say that the agreement covers “the full range of battery technologies, from cells across modules for Mercedes-Benz Cars to entire battery systems for Mercedes-Benz Vans in promising innovative technology configurations.”

Markus Schäfer, member of the board of management of Daimler AG and Mercedes-Benz AG responsible for Daimler Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars COO, commented on the announcement:

We intend to lead in battery technologies, so we are now combining our own research and development expertise with bold partners. We will integrate cutting-edge battery systems to create luxury cars with outstanding range, charging speed, safety, and sustainability. Working with CATL will see us accelerate our transformation toward carbon-neutrality. CATL will be a major supplier securing capacity for the next generations of our EQ products in the years to come.

The two most interesting parts of the deal are that Mercedes-Benz says it plans to use CATL’s cell-to-pack (CTP) design, and that CATL is going to supply battery cells for Mercedes-Benz’s upcoming EQS electric sedan.

Cell-to-pack design eliminates conventional modules and integrates the cells directly into the battery pack.

As for the EQS, Mercedes-Benz has been teasing a range of over 400 miles for the new electric car launching next year.
