Improved batteries for electric cars
By 2025, with our innovations in electric car battery materials, we aim to double the driving range of midsize cars from 300 to 600 km on a single charge.
Batteries will be halved in size and cost. Their lifespans will be extended. Best of all, drivers could expect to get a full charge in as little as 15 minutes – no longer than it takes to enjoy a quick cup of coffee. BASF expects the market for lithium-ion batteries to grow rapidly and our innovations in battery materials will help to make electric vehicles a practical reality for everyone.
