An electric motor replaces the internal combustion engine in all-electric vehicles, often known as battery electric vehicles (BEVs). One of the most promising and rapidly expanding markets for electric vehicles in the area is Angola.
Many things, including labor availability, R&D initiatives, geographic advantage, and government assistance, support the vehicle sector in Angola. The country’s sales of electric vehicles are expected to increase significantly due to the country’s improving economy and rising household purchasing power.
The Angola electric vehicle market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
In Angola, Mercedes-Benz announced a partnership with Sila, a manufacturer of next-generation battery materials, to provide Sila’s silicon anode chemistry as a battery option in the company’s future electric G-Class.
As part of its research and development of cutting-edge batteries for the German luxury automobile manufacturer’s upcoming electric vehicles, Mercedes-Benz had previously invested in Sila.
By using Sila’s technology, it is claimed that energy density at the cell level can be increased by 20–40% compared to currently existing commercially available cells of a similar format, reaching more than 800 Wh/l.
Mercedes-Benz hopes that this significant advancement will allow it to store more energy in a smaller space, hence extending range and allowing future vehicles to travel farther on a single charge.
Mercedes-Benz will be Sila’s first publicly acknowledged automotive client as it promises to use only renewable energy in its new Washington State factory to manufacture cutting-edge silicon anode materials. Both firms anticipate releasing the range-extended electric G-Class in the middle of the decade, equipped with the latest battery technology.
