Chinese battery maker Gotion High-Tech has begun construction of a new lithium-ion battery production plant in Hefei, the capital city of the eastern Anhui province. The new plant will have a capacity of 50 gigawatt-hours (GWh) per year and is scheduled to start production in March 2023. The plant will allow the Volkswagen-backed company to supply batteries to top international automakers, Gotion said in a Tuesday announcement. [Gotion release, in Chinese]
