CATL is the world’s leading lithium-ion battery R&D and manufacturing company, focusing on the R&D, production and sales of new energy vehicle power battery systems and energy storage systems, and is committed to providing first-class solutions for global new energy applications. Since Changan Automobile announced its third venture, it has unswervingly promoted the implementation of the “Beidou Tianshu” intelligent strategy and the “Shangri-La” new energy strategy, accelerating the transformation from a traditional automobile company to an intelligent mobility technology company.
Regarding cooperation with Ningde Times, Changan Automobile stated on the interactive platform in July that Ningde Times occupies a leading position in the upstream battery field of new energy vehicles. In order to ensure its own development, Changan Automobile has strengthened its cooperation with Ningde Times.
