Citing leaked documents, the Tesla Model Y with blade battery from BYD has received approval from the European Union, teslamag.de says.

According to the teslamag.de report, approval was granted by the Dutch Vehicle Authority (RDW) on July 1, 2022. The report states that the new Model Y is called Type 005, which is internally referred to as the Tesla variant Y7CR.

The Model Y in the document uses a BYD battery with a capacity of 55 kWh and an estimated range of 440 kilometers, which is somehow a step back, according to the report.

Tesla only sells the Model Y Long Rang or Performance in Europe. A variant with rear-wheel drive and a smaller battery was registered in the EU and approved last summer, according to the report.

In a Sina Tech report, supplies of BYD blade batteries have begun to be shipped to Giga Berlin which will be the first to use BYD batteries.

The first batch of Tesla EVs with BYD blade batteries could roll off the assembly line in as little as one month, from late August to early September, according to the report.

So far, BYD’s blade batteries will only be used for Giga Berlin’s EVs. Giga Shanghai has no plans to use BYD batteries at this time as it is already using battery supplies from CATL and LG Energy Solution.
