From:Internet Info Agency 2019-07-02 17:52:01

Here is Energy Weekly report. We are committed to bring together all the topics and new launching vehicles in the new energy area. Last week, the “white list” of NEV power batteries in the industry for nearly four years has been officially cancelled. And due to hidden danger of battery pack, NIO recalled some ES8 models. And let’s have a total look at it.

The Latest

  1. “White list” of power battery companies abolished, the Chinese power battery industry will be reshuffled

On June 24, IIA learned from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the PRC (MIIT) that the "Regulations on the Standards of Automotive Power Battery Industry" (hereinafter referred to as "Regulation") will be abolished from June 21, 2019. The first, second, third and fourth batches of enterprise catalogues meeting the conditions of the standards shall be abolished at the same time. This means that the “white list” of NEV power batteries in the industry for nearly four years has been officially cancelled.

Editor: The abolition of this "white list" will further accelerate the progress of Japanese and Korean battery giants re-entering China, and China's domestic power battery industry will also usher in a new round of competition. Under the challenge of internal and external, China's power battery companies will be under tremendous pressure, especially the battery companies currently in the second and third tiers. According to the current policy, China's NEV subsidy policy will be terminated by the end of 2020. In addition to higher requirements for power battery companies and OEMs, this has also cleared the way for overseas power battery brands to enter China. It is foreseeable that battery giants including Samsung SDI, LG Chem, and Panasonic will enter the Chinese market in the next two to three years. As more car companies accelerate their electrification strategies, new orders will no doubt be given priority to the leading companies, which will further deepen the Matthew effect.

  1. NIO recalled ES8, due to hidden danger of battery pack

On June 27, NIO announced that NIO would recall some NIO ES8 electric vehicles equipped with battery packs produced from April 2, 2018 to October 19, 2018. This recall affects 4,803 vehicles. The investigation has concluded that the battery packs in the vehicles involved were equipped with a module specification NEV-P50, and the voltage sampling cable harness in the module may be pressed by the upper cover of the module due to improper positioning. In extreme cases, the insulation on the pressed voltage sampling cable harness may wear out and cause a short circuit, creating a safety issue.

  1. LEAP MOTOR started the delivery

On June 28, LEAP S01 started the delivery of 10 units of Leap S01 380 Pro. It is understood that LEAP MOTOR has designated a full-process scheduling delivery plan covering pre-sales, deposit subscriptions, lock-and-sell production/logistics delivery, and car-on-board delivery for product delivery to ensure smooth delivery. At the same time, LEAP MOTOR will open at least 60 LEAP experience stores and service centers nationwide this year to further improve the offline delivery service network.
