China has made new advances in producing new materials for new energy vehicles (NEVs) with higher motor efficiency and reduced energy usage to satisfy the increasing demand in the country’s new energy vehicle (NEV) industry.
On Wednesday, a self-developed high-grade, non-oriented electrical steel production line was put into operation in Qian’an City, located in the Hebei Province of north China. The construction of this production line took China six years to complete.
According to Hu Zhiyuan, deputy general manager of Shougang Zhixin Qian’an Electromagnetic Material Co., Ltd., who spoke with China Media Group, the two types of new electrical steel that are currently being produced in the factory have the potential to increase the efficiency of the motor by more than 0.8 percent (CMG). He stated that if each car goes 50 kilometers daily, 20 million NEVs will save 5 million kilowatt-hours of electricity daily. This is assuming that there are 20 million NEVs.
CMG was informed by Ma Jiaji, the chief engineer of Beijing Shougang Co. Ltd., that once the manufacturing line becomes fully operational, it will steer the NEV industry in the direction of a new production process path. The production line, which is anticipated to create an annual output of 350,000 tonnes of the new electrical steel, will meet the requirements for manufacturing around 5 million new energy vehicles annually.
The demand for NEVs in China skyrocketed in the first half of 2022. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, sales of new energy vehicles (NEVs) reached around 2.6 million from January to June, representing a year-on-year increase of 129.2 percent. The surge in new energy vehicle (NEVs) sales has also boosted the demand for new energy vehicle batteries.
The National Energy Administration announced that there are a total of 1.3 million charging facilities across the country, and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology claimed that there are over 10,000 battery recycling stations in China. In addition, the core infrastructure necessary to keep NEVs on the road has been expanded.
