Will lead-free electric two-wheelers be realized

Recently, a statement to make BYD again on the hot search. BYD officially announced that the starting battery of plug-in hybrid models will be switched from lead-acid batteries to lithium iron phosphate batteries, successfully realizing the “lead-free” of the entire vehicle.

The key to this technical change, which has become a hotly debated event in the industry, lies in the trend of lead-free and BYD’s influence. As we all know, BYD, as a leading company in China’s new energy industry and lithium battery industry, has been paying attention to every move, especially every innovation in technology, which will affect the development direction of the industry.

Therefore, this declaration of “no lead” is not only a product choice of BYD, but also a wind vane event in the new energy industry. When we discuss this event, we can’t help but expand “lead-free” to the whole new energy industry, and a derivative topic emerges, which is more worthy of being widely discussed.

Will lead-free electric two-wheelers be realized

Electric two-wheeled vehicle as a national travel necessary transportation, almost every family has one or two, per capita retention base is extremely large. Such a huge amount of retention, to the lithium-electricity of electric two-wheeled vehicles has brought a great user base.

Moreover, compared to the lithium-ionization of automobile starter batteries, lithium-ionization of two-wheeled electric vehicles has long been in the forefront, and has a very wide range of user groups, the head of the major OEMs in recent years have also increased the code “lithium-ion vehicles”.

This time, the new energy vehicle giants to replace lead-acid batteries with lithium batteries, not only to promote a comprehensive change in China’s automotive industry lead-free, to help green low-carbon development of the key initiatives, but also to the field of lithium-electric electric two-wheeled vehicles will also bring greater impetus to the field of electric two-wheeled vehicles lithium-electricity.

Will lead-free electric two-wheelers be realized?

Why is lithium-ionization of electric two-wheelers a big trend

In terms of performance, the service life of lead-acid batteries is only 1 year, while the cycle life of lithium batteries is more than two to three times the life of lead-acid batteries. Lead-acid batteries generally weigh about 30 to 70 pounds, the greater the number of ampere hours the heavier the weight, while the same capacity of lithium batteries generally weigh only one-third of the lead-acid batteries.

With the deepening of the new national standard landing, in order to achieve the new national standard vehicle weight standards, lead-acid vehicles are basically installed 48V12Ah battery-based, range is only about 35KM. In contrast, some mainstream brands on the market now introduced the new national standard lithium battery car, range generally reached 80-100KM, whether from the performance or experience, lithium-ion are winning lead-acid.

Environmentally speaking, lead-acid batteries in the production and waste process there is serious pollution and harm, and the current social environmental demands, low-carbon requirements of the contradiction between the increasingly obvious. In recent years, with the deepening of the new national standard landing, the popularization of lithium two-wheeled vehicles accelerated, lithium batteries are welcomed by more and more consumers.

It can be said that the penetration of lithium batteries there is still a lot of room for growth, the trend of lithium is irreversible, electric two-wheeled vehicles to promote the field of “lead-free” time is ripe.

Why is lithium-ionization of electric two-wheelers a big trend

The cost of lithium-ion vehicles has been further reduced

The primary challenge facing the lithium-ionization of electric two-wheelers is price. This is also the reason why the current lead-acid bike can occupy the market. Although lithium-electric bike has quite obvious performance advantages, but due to the same configuration of the lead-acid bike purchase price is lower, especially in economically underdeveloped areas, consumers are more willing to buy short-distance travel to install lead-acid batteries electric bike.

But if consumers take into account the cost of the car, will find that the integrated cost of lithium car, in fact, and lead-acid bike with bike cost is not much different, or even better. Lithium battery bike although the initial acquisition cost is slightly higher, but lithium batteries are more durable than lead-acid batteries, consumers do not have to replace batteries frequently, saving a considerable amount of additional costs, greatly reducing the cost of using the bike. On the contrary, lead-acid batteries, because of the short service life, need to be replaced frequently, in fact, increase the cost of using bike.

In addition, lithium battery recycling and reutilization industry continues to mature and improve, lithium enterprises represented by Xingheng Power are actively laying out lithium recycling business, giving lithium batteries recyclable and reusable value. Consumers in the replacement of old batteries, old batteries can be recycled at a discounted price, thus further reducing the cost of battery replacement.

The cost of lithium-ion vehicles has been further reduced

From a comprehensive point of view, the longer service life of lithium-ion vehicles and the considerable recovery price will further dilute the price advantage of lead-acid vehicles, enhance the enthusiasm of consumers to purchase lithium-ion vehicles, and promote the accelerated popularization of lithium-ion vehicles.

The safety of lithium batteries is cracked

The lithium-ionization of electric two-wheelers has been accelerating in recent years. A noteworthy trend is that data shows that more than 50% of new models launched by major electric two-wheeler brands in 2022 are equipped with lithium batteries. The market size of lithium-electric vehicles is expected to reach R40 billion in 2024, and will continue to maintain a growth trend in the future.

The large-scale application of lithium batteries in electric two-wheeled vehicles, mainly due to the lithium enterprises to vigorously promote. In the future, if you want to further increase the penetration rate of lithium-electric vehicles, in addition to the above reduction in the cost of the car, reversing the cognitive bias of the consumer “lithium-electric vehicles are not safe” is particularly important, and the only way to reverse the bias, only relying on the lithium-electric products with very high safety.

The safety of lithium batteries is cracked


BYD to promote new energy vehicles lead-free, so that lithium batteries to fully replace lead-acid batteries is a fact of life. It can be predicted that, in the dual-carbon background, from “four-wheeled lead-free landing” to “lithium-ionization of two-wheelers”, environmental protection travel has become the trend of the times, electric two-wheeled vehicles as one of the important ways of national travel, is an important part of the new energy green travel! As one of the important ways of national transportation, electric two-wheelers are an important part of new energy green transportation.

With the deepening of the new national standard landing, consumer acceptance of the significant increase in electric two-wheeled vehicles “lithium replace lead acid” has blown the horn, lithium accelerated process has been the general trend!
