    German carmakers left reliant on others for battery cells

    Plans by a Chinese company to build a battery cell factory in Germany should serve as a wakeup call for the national car industry, whose lack of its own production capacity risks leaving it exposed in a dawning era of electric mobility. Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang is expected to take part in a signing ceremony at a summit in Berlin on Monday for Contemporary Amperex Technology Ltd (CATL) to build the plant in the eastern state of Thuringia. BMW has awarded a contract worth just over 1 billion euros ($1.2 billion) for CATL to make cells for electric cars, while Volkswagen has picked CATL and South Korea's Samsung and LG Chem to deliver $25 billion worth of batteries.

    Nissan calls off potential $1 billion sale of battery unit to China's GSR

    Nissan Motor cancelled a potential $1 billion sale of its electric car battery unit to China's GSR Capital, and while the automaker said it still aimed to find a buyer, analysts feel it could be a hard sell as the technology was not cutting edge. Japan's second-biggest automaker said on Monday the Chinese investment firm lacked the funds to make the purchase. The deal could not be closed by the June 29 deadline, Nissan said, ending a process which had faced several delays since its announcement almost a year ago.

    Tesla's Musk says Germany a front runner for Europe Gigafactory

    U.S. electric carmaker Tesla (TSLA.O) favors Germany as the location for its first European Gigafactory, its chief executive said, in what would be the latest move by an outside firm into the European battery market. Industry experts expect a green car revolution to boost Europe's battery market to around 250 billion euros ($290 billion) by 2025. Asian companies including CATL and Samsung have already signed up companies or set up their own European operations, prompting European politicians and business leaders to call for more home-grown investment.

    GM to sell new electric car batteries to Honda in North America

    GM said the new batteries, which it has branded EME 1.0 and first described last fall, will be smaller than current EV batteries, can be charged more quickly and will provide more energy. Battery packs, typically the most expensive component of electric vehicles, can cost $10,000 to $12,000 - nearly a third the price of GM's Chevrolet Bolt EV. GM aims to cut that price nearly in half by 2021, sources told Reuters earlier this year.

    LONDON/FRANKFURT/STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Chinese electric vehicle giant BYD (1211.HK) is looking at launching battery production in Europe, joining Asian rivals aiming to cash in on a green car revolution and threatening attempts by Brussels to nurture a home-grown industry. Keen to capture a European car battery value chain that will be worth an estimated 250 billion euros (219.48 billion pounds) by 2025, the European Commission launched an alliance of local companies last year aiming to build 10-20 huge battery factories. "We are considering cell production outside of China and that includes Europe," Julia Chen, Global Sales Director at BYD Batteries, told Reuters, speaking about the production of both automotive and home storage batteries.

    [$$] Power Play: How China-Owned Volvo Avoids Beijing’s Battery Rules

    SHANGHAI—Chinese-owned Volvo Car Group is being allowed to use high-end South Korean battery technology in vehicles it builds in China, even as Beijing strong-arms other auto makers into using Chinese batteries. To build up its battery industry, China requires auto makers to use batteries from one of its approved suppliers if they want to be cleared to mass-produce electric cars and plug-in hybrids and to qualify for subsidies. Volvo’s China-made plug-in hybrids, though, are powered by essentially the same LG Chem batteries the car maker uses outside China, according to people familiar with the situation.

    'Urban mining' in South Korea pulls rare battery materials from recycled tech

    Workers at a rural South Korean factory are busy extracting some of the world's most coveted metals, used in the batteries that power electric cars. Instead, they are sorting through a pile of lithium-ion batteries from old mobile phones and laptops. As China’s aggressive hunt for overseas cobalt and lithium for electric vehicles pushes up prices and causes a global shortage of the key metals, South Korea is increasingly turning to such "urban mining" to recover cobalt, lithium and other scarce metals from electronic waste.
