Shanghai (Gasgoo)- GAC Aion, GAC Group's wholly-owned subsidiary dedicated to new energy vehicle (NEV) business, officially launched its super-fast charging battery technology that boasts 6 charging multipliers assisted by the A480 supercharger, which made its world's debut at the same time.

According to the automaker, by virtue of the innovation and upgrade of anode and cathode materials, electrolyte, membrane, and conductive agent, the migration and embedding process of lithium ions will be greatly quickened and the electric conductivity will be improved, so as to enhance battery's charging speeds.

While improving conductivity, the charging stability is also ensured thanks to the use of such materials as high porosity ceramic-coated membrane and low-viscosity high-power electrolyte, and the soft-carbon/hard-carbon/graphene coating modification technology.

The newly-launched technology can enable batteries to work under a voltage of up to 880V and withstand a recharge rated at up to 480kW. Besides, a five-minute charging can support a range of over 200 kilometers.

The technology will be first applied in the Aion V, which has been on the market since 2020. The new variant has already been included in the MIIT (Ministry of Industry and Information Technology)'s catalogue.

Under the peak charging power of 480kW, GAC Aion's A480 ultra-fast charger is capable of a top voltage of 1,000V and a current of 600 amps, according to the company.

GAC Aion said its first supercharging station was launched on August 30 at Guangzhou Donghong International Square. Focusing on first- and second-tier cities in China, GAC Aion will speed up the expansion of its charging network, which is scheduled to have 2,000 charging stations in 300 cities by 2025.
