Overview：Affected by the policy, the low-speed electric vehicle industry has witnessed a vigorous lithium wave this year. From distributors to consumers, they are fond of this trend, so there are many lithium products coming on the market in the second half of this year. Lithium battery companies are in frequent contact with low-speed electric vehicle companies, planning to develop a set of reasonable supporting programs for this special category of low-speed electric vehicles. All this shows that the low-speed electric vehicles have quietly upgraded themselves before the policy is introduced.
Affected by the policy, the low-speed electric vehicle industry has witnessed a vigorous lithium wave this year. From distributors to consumers, they are fond of this trend, so there are many lithium products coming on the market in the second half of this year. Lithium battery companies are in frequent contact with low-speed electric vehicle companies, planning to develop a set of reasonable supporting programs for this special category of low-speed electric vehicles. All this shows that the low-speed electric vehicles have quietly upgraded themselves before the policy is introduced.
But can lithium-ion batteries for low-speed electric vehicles completely replace the lead-acid batteries? Les's find out from 3 aspects:
The users of low-speed electric vehicles are middle-aged and elderly people in the third and fourth-tier cities and towns. Their consumption capacity is low, but they want a comfortable way to travel, which breeds the development of low-speed electric vehicles. It is undeniable that low-speed trams are an industry in grey areas, and even some drivers of low-speed electric vehicles are potential risk bombs on the road, but these can not stop the people's love for low-speed electric vehicles, which are cheap alternative vehicles. With the convenience of cheap and rain-free, low-speed electric vehicles have broad prospects for development in China.
In the whole price share of low-speed electric vehicles, batteries occupy the majority. The price of lead-acid batteries in the domestic market is much lower than that of lithium batteries. Low-speed electric vehicles carry lead-acid batteries without state subsidies and rely entirely on market economy. The price will double on the existing basis. As a result, the cost of travel increases dramatically with a single battery, and consumers of low-speed electric cars may find it difficult to pay for it again. Moreover, consumers who buy low-speed electric vehicles are disgusted with the high cost, and those who buy fuel vehicles are disgusted with the low grade. The follow-up results of low-speed electric vehicles are likely to be neglected.
2. Use Experience
Lithium batteries are too "delicate" to withstand the twists and turns of lead-acid batteries. Lithium tram can not withstand the impact of throwing. Once lithium batteries are punctured or severely impacted, lithium batteries may burn and explode. Lithium batteries have high requirements for chargers, and can not be recharged by coin chargers on the roadside like lead-acid batteries. Once the current is too high, it is possible to break through the protective panels in lithium batteries. Life causes combustion or even explosion.
The long repairing time seriously restricts the use of consumers. Once the failure of lithium batteries is repaired, it takes about a week, or even longer, which makes consumers impatient and lose confidence in using them. The reason is that distributors can not repair or replace the batteries that have problems inside the lithium batteries. They must be delivered to the manufacturing enterprises by express delivery, and the batteries can be repaired by professional equipment. This is one of the key factors restricting the large-scale replacement of lead-acid batteries by lithium batteries.
Under the background of the state's emphasis on the use of lithium batteries for low-speed electric vehicles, the government has taken some action in the lithium battery industry. The price of lithium batteries will certainly decrease, and it is likely that the price of lithium batteries will be reduced to the same level as lead-acid batteries in the future. Although lithium battery technology is mature, domestic manufacturers have not yet reached the stage of low-cost research and development of lithium battery materials. In the next three to five years, the price of lithium battery will be difficult to compete with lead-acid battery and win consumer recognition.
From the point of view of price and policy, it is a trend for Xiaoman to replace lead-acid batteries with lithium electrification for low-speed electric vehicles in the future, but there will be a long process.
