Spanning a total land area of approximately 1,435 mu (about 96 hectares), CATL's Guiyang base will focus on electric vehicle and energy storage battery production with a total annual capacity of 60 GWh. The project is being built in two phases. With an area of about 885 mu (59 hectares) and a total investment of about 7 billion yuan (about 0.96 billion US dollars), the first phase has a designed annual capacity of 30GWh of EV and energy storage batteries.

At present, the first phase of the plant has officially kicked off production. It is designed with high standards of Lighthouse factory and zero carbon factory, which adopts advanced, high-speed, high-automation, and high-flexibility production lines, achieving an automation rate of up to 95%. From material feeding to finished product, it can achieve a noteworthy speed of producing a cell within one second and a pack in 2.5 minutes. After the first phase of the plant reaches mass production, it will gradually foster an industrial ecosystem, contributing to the development of Gui’an New Area as a production hub of electric vehicles, batteries and raw materials.

Dr.Robin Zeng, chairman and general manager of CATL, said that CATL’s investment in production bases in Guizhou is inseparable from Guizhou’s guiding policies and resource advantages. Investing in Guizhou is an important strategic move for CATL. CATL will actively seize the strategic opportunity of carbon peaking and carbon neutrality, integrate new energy business planning with the economic development of Guizhou Province, and strive to make contributions to Guizhou’s green, low-carbon and high-quality development.
