Samsung SDI introduced in its customer exhibition at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) a “high-energy density battery cell of the next generation for a driving range of up to 600km that can fast charge EVs in 20 minutes” as well as an “integrated battery module” concept with a 10% decrease in component units and weight compared to the currently produced models.
- With an aim to contribute to the widespread EV adoption, Samsung SDI introduces the cutting-edge battery cell technology with the fast charging capability and high-energy density for a driving range of up to 600km
- Advanced “integrated battery module” is the latest concept that the company is working on, to maximize the safety and energy efficiency
These innovations are expected to forge the leading position of Samsung SDI in the era of electro mobility. The development of the fast charging technology is making a rapid advancement thanks to its technological know-how in materials and processes that vastly decreased the resistance inside a battery cell. With a 20min charge, you can have a driving range of up to 500km which is 80% of the capacity. This means that only 20min in the highway rest area will be enough for a battery to be charged, eliminating the range anxiety of EV drivers. The mass production of this product is slated for 2021.
