German multinational automotive corporation Daimler announced on Wednesday it plans to expand its partnership with Chinese battery maker CATL in order to make high-speed charge battery packs for its Mercedes-Benz vehicles.

In the joint announcement, Daimler stated that "the agreement covers the full range of battery technologies, from cells across modules for Mercedes-Benz Cars to entire battery systems for Mercedes-Benz Vans," and added that this also incorporates the CATL cell-to-pack (CTP) design, "which eliminates conventional modules and integrates the cells directly into the battery."

CATL said it will use only renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar and hydropower for its production.
