The original Blade battery, introduced in 2020, quickly catapulted BYD to the forefront of the electric vehicle industry. The key advancement in the second generation Blade battery lies in the incorporation of LMFP (lithium manganese iron phosphate) cathode technology, replacing the previous LFP (lithium iron phosphate) composition. This upgrade will elevate the battery’s energy density from 150 Wh/kg to an impressive 190 Wh/kg, marking a significant leap forward in performance. Moreover, by integrating manganese into the cathode without substantially increasing costs, BYD has achieved a remarkable 20% boost in energy density.   

As a result, vehicles equipped with the second generation Blade battery are projected to achieve a staggering 600 kilometers of range, compared to the previous 500 kilometers, all while maintaining the same vehicle weight. In addition to advancements in battery chemistry, BYD has also clarified the chassis-integrated battery pack design, aiming to optimize both cost-efficiency and volumetric energy density.

 Wang Chuanfu, the CEO and founder of BYD, has officially confirmed that the second generation Blade battery will be revealed in August 2024. With the impending launch of the second generation Blade battery, BYD is set to move in a new era of electrification, redefining the possibilities of electric vehicles in sustainable transportation.

As the world looks towards a future powered by clean energy, BYD stands ready to create innovative solutions in the charge industry in electric mobility.
