FUZHOU, Feb. 2 (Xinhua) -- CATL is China's leading automotive lithium-ion battery maker.

It has set up its first plant outside China, Contemporary Amperex Technology Thuringia GmbH (CATT), in Thuringia, Germany.

The first batch of lithium-ion battery cells passed all tests and will be delivered to European customers.

CATT says it will stay committed to Europe's e-mobility transition.

CATT received the permit for battery cell production from the state of Thuringia in April 2022.

With a total investment of up to 1.8 billion Euros, CATL plans to achieve a production capacity of 14GWh and create up to 2,000 new jobs in Germany.
