I did some looking into this yesterday.
It's not total bull, but the biggest achievement seems to be that they have managed to squeeze the batteries into using less space.
The energy density seems to be only a bit higher than NCA batteries (what Tesla uses).

The new battery has a capacity of 205 mAh/g while an NCA is up to 200 mAh/g. It's unclear what the nominal voltage is, but I doubt the difference is big.

So to achieve a range of 1000 km the cars might remain the same size but become much heavier. And probably as much more expensive.
