The company remains the largest battery consumer with a huge advantage over BYD.

report: tesla deployed 14 gwh of ev batteries in record-breaking september

Tesla consumes some astonishing volumes of lithium-ion batteries to fuel its sales growth. Today we will take a look at some of the results through September.

According to Adamas Intelligence, September was Tesla’s best month ever in terms of electric car deliveries, estimated at 190,255 (globally).

From January 2021 through September 2022, Tesla delivered about 1.848 million all-electric cars.

An interesting thing is how much battery capacity (in watt-hours) the company deployed, according to Adamas Intelligence estimations.

In September 2022 alone, it was 13.9 GWh (globally), which is a very high number. Compared to car sales, it’s also about 73 kWh per car on average.

Let’s note that some Tesla models are equipped with up to around 100 kWh battery, but the majority (Model 3/Model Y) is probably between around 60 kWh and up to over 80 kWh. Tesla does not communicate the exact battery capacity of its models, which varies between particular versions and changes from time to time with new battery types or even software updates.

In the period between January 2021 and September 2022, Tesla apparently deployed 132.9 GWh of batteries. That would be around 71.9 kWh per car on average if we compare the numbers.

Tesla vs. BYD

Adamas Intelligence reports also numbers for BYD, the second biggest all-electric car manufacturer, which also offers plug-in hybrids (the sales mix between BEVs and PHEVs is about 50/50 this year, compared to 45% BEVs in 2021).

BYD delivered some 192,648 BEV/PHEV cars during the month of September and 1.769 million between January 2021 and September 2022.

At the same time, its battery deployment is estimated at respectively 6.7 GWh (34.8 kWh per car) and 65.6 GWh (37.1 kWh per car).

It means that Tesla consumes about two times more batteries than BYD, which does not surprise us that much considering the long-range electric cars that Tesla sells.

Adamas Intelligence noted also that Tesla used roughly twice as much lithium, 17 times as much nickel and fourtimes as much cobalt as BYD. That’s because Tesla uses a lot of nickel-rich NCA and NCM battery chemistries (plus LFP), while BYD relies mostly on LFP (and some NCM).

September 2022 results:

  • Tesla: 190,255 BEVsbatteries: 13.9 GWh
    average: 73 kWh per car
  • BYD: 192,648 BEV/PHEVbatteries: 6.7 GWh
    average: 34.8 kWh per car

January 2021 – September 2022 results:

  • Tesla: 1.848 million BEVsbatteries: 132.9 GWh
    average: 71.9 kWh per car
  • BYD: 1.769 million BEV/PHEVbatteries: 65.6 GWh
    average: 37.1 kWh per car
  • Tesla vs. BYD:lithium: twice as muchnickel: 17-times as much
    cobalt: four-times as much
