We know how Tesla is into refining its products and also expanding its lifetime. With an outstanding lineup of electric cars, all that makes Musk anxious is the limited lifetime of the battery of these electric vehicles.

Tesla China’s battery supplier Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (CATL) has released details about its million-mile battery. You heard it right, this battery will allow Tesla models to run for a million miles. Currently, the range of these electric vehicles varies between 100,000 miles to 150,000 miles, depending on the variant of the vehicle. More extended mileage warranties apply to the Model S and Model X, while the shortest belongs to the Model 3 and Model Y Standard or Standard Range+ vehicles.

With these new batteries manufactured by the company, CATL, Tesla will soon achieve the milestone where the batteries would last sixteen years or 1.24 million miles. Currently, the batteries come with a warranty for eight years,

This huge step will be a game-changer for Tesla. The company had been steadily researching the millionth-mile battery type and hope to increase the lifespan of not just its electric vehicles but also its other products. Tesla acquired the help of Jeff Dahn, a battery researcher at Dalhousie University in Canada, to help with the development of long-lasting lithium-ion batteries.

The china based CATL is looking forward to setting its factories in countries like Germany to supply big brands like BMW, Volkswagen, Audi. With a strong focus to produce a battery that is capable of a million miles of travel in an EV or twenty years of lifespan in its energy products, Tesla is expected to unveil the finer points of its long-lasting batteries at its upcoming “Battery Day.”

Zeng spoke highly of his relationship with Musk. “We’re getting along well, and he’s a fun guy,” he said. “He’s talking about cost all day long, and I’m making sure we have the solutions.”
