On October 2, local time, Hiber System first appeared on Tesla's list of subsidiaries in Tesla's official Canadian federal lobbying registration document.
Last year, Hiber System received C $2 million from the Canadian National Research Council Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP), which was used to build a complete high-speed lithium-ion battery production system in Richmond Mountain, Ontario, Canada.
Although the company's website currently has only a blank page with contact information, it has previously mentioned the project in its profile: "2 million yuan will be allocated to support the development of high-speed lithium-ion battery production systems to meet the market's demand for large-scale power storage solutions."
It is understood that Tesla had previously reached a battery research agreement with Canadian lithium-ion battery pioneer Jeff Dahn, which led to the establishment of the NSERC/ Tesla Canada Industrial Research Group and the opening of a new research laboratory near Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Later, Tesla acquired Maxwell, a maker of supercapacitors and batteries, with a new revolutionary dry-electrode technology. It is understood that this technology is expected to increase the battery density from 40% to 140%, which will greatly expand the range of Tesla vehicles without using solvents and be more environmentally friendly.
