TOKYO -- Chinese battery maker Gotion High-Tech plans to nearly double the energy density of lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries by 2030, which could in turn double the driving range of electric vehicles and significantly reshape competition in the battery sector.

Gotion High-Tech is noted for its low-priced LFP batteries used in the $4,500 Hongguang Mini EV from SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile.
