Renault is analyzing the LFP batteries

The price range of the Renault 5 should be between 20,000 and 30,000 euros. The LFP batteries (lithium iron phosphate batteries) have a more reasonable price and together with the new CMF-B EV platform for compact electric vehicles, could ensure that this goal is easily achieved. LFP batteries are more stable and more resistant to damages in the event of an accident. LFP batteries don't contain cobalt, which is still one of the most expensive metals in battery manufacturing. This is one of the reasons why they are cheaper than lithium-ion batteries with NMC (nickel, manganese and cobalt) cathodes. BMW will start to produce aluminium using solar power.
