Samsung SDI introducing latest EV battery lineup at NAIAS; roadmap for solid-state
14 January 2019
Samsung SDI said it will introduce its latest lineup of batteries for electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid models at the 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
Samsung SDI will present its fast-charging, high-capacity batteries for EVs and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) under the theme “Charged for Auto 2.0” to attract interest from global automakers seeking tailored products for their EVs.
Auto 2.0 is a concept introduced by Goldman Sachs in 2017 and refers to the next-generation automotive industry led by electric and fully autonomous vehicles combined with new business models for the sharing economy.
Samsung SDI will also unveil its business roadmap for solid-state batteries.
There may be a connection between Samsung and the LG Chem/Enevate effort.
Korean major battery makers form a 100 billion Won fund.
Volkswagen partners with Samsung and LG Chem.
If this new battery lineup includes silicon-dominant cells, it's almost certain that the Enevate electrode is rapidly taking over across the board.

Near future, much higher performance, very quick recharge, longer lasting, lower cost EV batteries may be around, from many sources, by 2025/2030 or so.
If so, affordable extended range (500 to 800 Km) all weather BEVs, from many manufacturers from China, So-Korea, Japan and EU, may become a reality?
