Chinese battery giant CATL has abruptly postponed plans to announce plans to build its second overseas plant in North America, following US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan that has exacerbated tensions between the US and Chinese governments, sources told Bloomberg on Tuesday. The world’s biggest electric vehicle battery supplier began weighing several locations in Mexico and the US to supply Tesla and Ford early this year, but has now decided to wait until at least September to make the announcement, the report said. CATL is headquartered in the eastern province of Fujian, in close proximity to Taiwan. [Bloomberg]
