The hottest Tesla or the acquisition of a Canadian

  • Detail

Tesla may acquire Canadian battery enterprises and new energy vehicle enterprises to "disrupt" the power battery market

electromechanical; Mechanical and electrical products; Power battery; Industry information; Market conditions Tesla, which makes cars, will also make batteries

recently, it was reported that Tesla acquired HIBAR, a Canadian battery manufacturing equipment and engineering company

in fact, Tesla has coveted the power battery market for a long time, and many new energy vehicle companies have also begun to layout this field to ensure battery supply

Tesla may make batteries

a new document shows that Tesla lists Haiba as a subordinate company and establishes a directly related subsidiary in cooperation with Tesla and the Canadian government

according to the official of Haiba China branch, the enterprise was registered in Ontario, Canada, and was founded in 1970. It started with precision metering pump and liquid injection distribution system. At present, it is mainly engaged in the manufacturing of small automatic battery production equipment for electric vehicles, notebook computers and other electric products, and provides solutions to relevant enterprises to meet their production automation requirements

in its self introduction, Haiba company also said that in the past 40 years, Haiba company has become the preferred supplier of primary and secondary battery production lines in the battery industry

but as of press time, Tesla and Haiba have not publicly responded to the acquisition

this is not the first time Tesla has entered the battery market

as early as February this year, Tesla purchased Maxwell, a battery technology company, for $218million to enhance its expertise in energy storage and power transmission, which is considered to be a strong signal for Tesla to enter the battery industry; In June, some media reported that Tesla had set up a secret laboratory to research and develop battery production technology

in addition, Tesla has reached a research agreement with the Canadian Jeff Dahn expert group to jointly carry out research on the improvement of battery capacity and density. Tesla also plans to build a new battery production line in California, the United States. At present, it is recruiting core positions such as designers, analysts and testers for the production line

at the investor conference in June this year, musk said that if I were an external investor, I would pay close attention to two things: the landing schedule of autonomous driving and the plan to expand the scale of battery production and reduce the cost of unit battery. He also stressed that Tesla plans to hold a battery and powertrain investor day at the end of this year, when more plans on batteries will surface

it is worth mentioning that on October 7, a model 3 electric vehicle appeared on a new test track near Tesla Shanghai factory, and the production of Tesla Shanghai factory entered the countdown

some insiders said that after the baptism of the reform and opening up, with the production of Tesla Shanghai plant, the demand for batteries will also be greater. In addition to seeking battery partners, battery manufacturing is becoming an important strategic layout of Tesla

many car companies have plans to make batteries

for new energy car companies, batteries, as the most critical link, can be said that only by making good batteries, can we build good new energy vehicles

but the current situation is that batteries are still the weakness of new energy vehicle enterprises

take Tesla as an example. In July 2014, Tesla and Panasonic signed a super factory agreement. According to the agreement, Tesla will be responsible for providing and managing the land, buildings and utilities of the plant. The experimental performance meets the different requirements of different levels. Panasonic is responsible for producing and supplying lithium batteries, and investing in the equipment required for production. However, after many years of cooperation between Tesla and Panasonic, Panasonic has been unable to meet Tesla's needs with the imminent commissioning of Tesla's Shanghai plant

Main production specifications: 0.23 ⑴ 0mm*800 ⑴ 250mm

musk once said that Panasonic can only achieve a battery capacity of 24gwh per year, and cannot fully meet Tesla's 35gwh battery demand

this also means that Tesla needs to find new battery suppliers

it is not only Tesla that is in trouble with batteries, but other new energy vehicle companies are also facing the same problems. Therefore, many car companies have plans to build batteries

it is understood that foreign car companies such as Mercedes Benz, Volkswagen and general motors have begun to layout the power battery market. Among them, Volkswagen plans to invest 900million euros to establish a new battery factory with northvolt, a Swedish battery company. The plant will be opened in salzgit, Germany, in 2020, and is scheduled to be put into operation in 2024 with an initial capacity of 16gwh

in addition, domestic auto companies such as SAIC, GAC and Dongfeng have also established joint ventures with Ningde times to ensure battery supply by binding with battery enterprises

although new energy vehicle enterprises are ready to move towards the power battery market, there are also insiders who are pessimistic about the manufacturing of batteries by vehicle enterprises

Mo Ke, chief analyst of true lithium research, is not optimistic that new energy vehicle companies can make a difference in the battery field. He said that professional reasons are professional people. It is easy to make a battery, and it is not easy to do a good job of electricity. In the zigzag experiment, it is not easy to find the shortcomings of stainless steel materials in time and repair the pool in time. Cooperate with battery enterprises to build factories. The battery manufacturing is left to the battery factory, and the battery system is done by itself. Each has its own division of labor, which can be considered, but there will be many problems if it is done by itself
