Nickel, cobalt, and manganese use continues to grow, despite slowdown in global EV market

After China reduced EV incentives earlier this year, the global monthly drop in EV sales continued into October, which saw a 19% reduction in passenger EV sales versus the same month the year prior, according to Adamas Intelligence. On top of this downturn, the global sales-weighted average passenger EV’s battery capacity, a metric that has… Read more »

NCM 811 cathodes quickly grow to 18% market share in China

In September 2019, sales of new passenger EVs with NCM 811 battery cells accounted for 18% of all passenger EV battery capacity deployed in China and 7% of all capacity deployed globally, according to Adamas Intelligence’s latest EV Battery Capacity Monthly report. For the second month in a row, NCM 811 was second only to… Read more »

BEVs account for 91% of passenger vehicle battery capacity, outpacing PHEVs and hybrids

Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) accounted for 91 percent of all passenger EV battery capacity globally in June 2019, according to a recent report on monthly EV battery capacity by Adamas Intelligence. That figure was up from 84 percent a year earlier. Adamas attributes the increase to the sales growth of BEVs outpacing those of hybrids… Read more »

NCM cathodes making headway in EV market

In April 2019, 6.7 GWh of battery capacity was deployed globally in newly-sold passenger BEVs, PHEVs and hybrids – an increase of 69% year-over-year, according to Adamas Intelligence’s EV Battery Capacity and Battery Metals Tracker.
