Renault’s Ampere partners with LG Energy and CATL in LFP Technology push

By Editor


Renault’s electric vehicle unit, Ampere, announced its plan to incorporate lithium iron phosphate (LFP) technology into its mass production of EVs.

Renault’s Ampere unit will collaborate with LG Energy Solution (LGES) and CATL to establish a supply chain in Europe.

“This decision is an effective and cutting-edge response to market volatility and changing technologies,” Ampere said in a statement.

Renault’s Ampere added that LFP batteries would be used in “several” models of the Renault and Alpine brands over the coming years. Ampere also committed to developing cell-to-pack battery solutions with LGES to enhance the range of its EVs.

LGES announced it had signed a deal to supply 39 gigawatt hours of LFP pouch-type batteries to Renault, sufficient to power approximately 590,000 vehicles. The battery cells will be produced in Poland. This agreement marks LGES’s first LFP battery supply deal for EV use.

Automakers are increasingly turning to different battery chemistries, such as LFP, to reduce costs and make affordable EVs while mitigating supply chain concerns over materials like cobalt.

LGES noted that while the contract’s value has not been confirmed, the agreement will span from the end of 2025 to December 31, 2030.
