The Rise of The Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) Battery

Last April, Tesla announced that nearly half of the electric vehicles it produced in its first quarter of 2022 were equipped with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries, a cheaper rival to the nickel-and-cobalt based cells that dominate in the West. The lithium iron phosphate battery offers an alternative in the electric vehicle market. It could diversify battery manufacturing, supply chains and EV sales in North America and Europe.
