Samsung unveil new battery for electric cars

Samsung are working on an electric car battery to rival Tesla's.

The multinational corporation unveiled their compact "multifunctional battery packs" at the Frankfurt Motor Show and promise better mileage than their counterparts.

Explaining about their multifunctional battery packs, they shared: "The concept of the products Samsung SDI displayed at the show is a battery company preparing for the popularisation of EVs and high technologies were applied to them accordingly.

"Multifunctional battery packs from Samsung SDI attracted the most attention. Its users can change the number of modules as they want as if they place books on a shelf. For example, if 20 modules are installed in a premium car, it can go 600 to 700 kilometers. If 10 to 12 modules are mounted on a regular sedan, it can run up to 300 kilometers. This pack is expected to catch the eyes of automakers because they can design a car whose mileage may vary depending on how many modules of a single pack are installed."

The team also unveiled their "Low Height Cell" battery, which can "decrease battery load height".

They added: "This is a cell whose height has been reduced by more than 20 percent than that of other existing cells. If this cell is applied, it can decrease the battery load height in an EV. If the height is reduced, interior space will be better utilized, enabling automakers to develop EVs of various designs."

Whilst Samsung SDI President Jun Young-hyu shared: "Our products unveiled at the show are expected to advance the popularisation of EVs because they use high technologies optimized to the needs of customers and the market. We will keep leading the battery industry with our unrivaled technology."
