Vanadium‐based polyanionic materials are promising electrode materials for sodium‐ion batteries (SIBs) due to their outstanding advantages such as high voltage, acceptable specific capacity, excellent structural reversibility, good thermal stability, etc. Polyanionic compounds, moreover, can exhibit excellent multiplicity performance as well as good cycling stability after well‐designed carbon covering and bulk‐phase doping and thus have attracted the attention of multiple researchers in recent years. In this paper, after the modification of carbon capping and bulk‐phase nitrogen doping, compared to pristine Na3V2(PO4)3, the well optimized Na3V(PO3)3N/C possesses improved electromagnetic induction strength and structural stability, therefore exhibits exceptional cycling capability of 96.11% after 500 cycles at 2 C (1 C = 80 mA g−1) with an elevated voltage platform of 4 V (vs Na+/Na). Meanwhile, the designed Na3V(PO3)3N/C possesses an exceptionally low volume change of ≈0.12% during cycling, demonstrating its quasi‐zero strain property, ensuring an impressive capacity retention of 70.26% after 10,000 cycles at 2 C. This work provides a facial and cost‐effective synthesis method to obtain stable vanadium‐based phosphate materials and highlights the enhanced electrochemical properties through the strategy of carbon rapping and bulk‐phase nitrogen doping.
