According to the agreement, CATL will develop, manufacture, and supply batteries for the Newton eTrailer, which will be launched in 2023 to promote sustainable road transport development in Europe.
The Newton eTrailer is Trailer Dynamics’s first electric semi-trailer model, is designed to respond to the driving behavior of its coupled tractor using integrated electric drive trains and provides support for it through an integrated electric transmission system, managing the electrical energy resources intelligently along the entire route.
Both sides creatively apply the batteries to semi-trailers, while improving efficiency and also lowering operating expenses.
To meet the requirements of high efficiency under the complex working conditions for long-haul trucks, CATL is developing a 300 kWh lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery with cell to pack (CTP) technology and cooling liquid for the Newton eTrailer.
The LFP chemistry system features an extraordinary long cycle life and a high thermal runaway temperature of up to 800°C.
Together with liquid cooling technology, it enables products’ outstanding performance in safety and reliability, as well as a wide working temperature range.
Under Europe’s tough emission rules, the Newton eTrailer with CATL battery systems will become a very competitive product thanks to a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and a better experience for end-users.
