BEIJING, Dec. 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — On December 14, 2023, TAILG, a global leader in electric two-wheelers, announced the release of its latest sodium-ion battery technology, marking the beginning of a new era for electric two-wheelers. The technology features exceptional long-range capabilities, extended warranties, superior low-temperature resistance, and enhanced safety. TAILG’s luxury e-bikes will be the first to feature the sodium-ion batteries, and they will initially be available in China.
TAILG’s first electric two-wheelers with sodium-ion battery technology are now available
The global electric two-wheeler market is currently growing at a rate of over 20% per year. Despite this progress, range anxiety remains a significant hurdle to the industry’s advancement.
TAILG’s sodium-ion battery solution, which was launched globally at the China (Beijing) Light Electric Vehicle Battery Forum, marks a significant milestone in the two-wheeler sector, ushering in a new era of sodium-ion batteries. As TAILG’s first sodium-ion battery, it also demonstrates TAILG’s strong commitment to long-range solutions.
Sun Muchu, Executive President of TAILG Group, highlighted the four major advantages of their battery technology:
- The battery has a super long range, capable of reaching 115 kilometers even in temperatures below 0°C, while maintaining a speed of 25km/h.
- The lifecycle exceeds 2,000 cycles, 5-7 times longer than conventional lead-acid batteries.
- The battery retains about 93% of its capacity even in the extreme cold of -20°C, making it exceptionally suitable for winter use.
- Additionally, the battery’s safety performance exceeds industry standards due to the IPX7-grade waterproof technology that covers the entire pack.
TAILG will apply the sodium-ion battery to its luxury e-bike range for the mid-to-premium consumer market.
As the first in the industry to launch electric two-wheelers equipped with sodium-ion batteries, TAILG aims to capitalize on its first-mover advantage to create a complete ecosystem. The strategy involves developing a comprehensive ecosystem encompassing R&D, products, and marketing, positioning TAILG for a systematic competitive edge in the sodium-ion battery market.
