Battery switching, which takes approximately the same amount of time as fueling a conventional automobile, is the process of replacing empty or exhausted batteries in electric vehicles with charged ones.
Battery swapping as a consequence allays concerns about the adoption of electric cars (EVs), such as long charging times, range anxiety, and high battery replacement costs.
By separating the battery from the car, the battery swapping model also reduces the cost of purchasing an EV and raises the market’s level of competition.
The market’s growth for replacing the batteries in electric cars would be impacted by these factors.
Additionally, continued battery price drops, performance enhancements, and model options made accessible by manufacturers all contributed to the sustained acceptance of electric vehicles.
The Mexico EV Battery Swapping Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
From Brazil, BYD Launches a Battery Manufacturing Facility BYD has started running a battery production plant in Brazil, where it already has two sites.
Using lithium iron phosphate, or LFP, cells, the newest battery production plant in Manaus is very small (5,000 square metres) and seems to only make modules, not individual batteries.
Annual production will reach 18,000 battery modules (of undetermined capacity). Most of the batteries will be used in BYD’s buses. Batteries for twelve 22-meter articulated buses will be the inaugural project for the city of So, José dos Campos in the state of So Paulo.
The world’s first manufacturing facility for the mass manufacture of lithium-sulfur (Li-S) battery cells will be established by the Brazilian company CODEMGE in conjunction with the British company Oxis Energy.
The joint venture between CODEMGE and Oxis Energy, Oxis Brasil, will first focus on the heavy vehicle market—which includes trucks and buses—as well as the defence and aerospace sectors, with applications including drones, satellites, and vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.
The facility will be constructed near Belo Horizonte, in the state of Minas Gerais, in southeast Brazil. The factory is anticipated to start out by manufacturing 300,000 cells annually before increasing output to 1.2 million units, or half of its ultimate planned capacity, the following year.
