Samsung SDI Announced Next Generation Battery For 600 km (373 Mile) BEVs, Rechargeable In 20 Minutes!
Samsung SDI presented in Detroit at the 2017 NAIAS several battery innovations for electric cars. The major reveal is the next generation lithium-ion cells with both high energy density for 600 km (373 mi) of range in an all-electric car and high power density for 20-minute recharge (80%). The drawback is that Samsung SDI expects mass production of these cells in 2021. Well… it seems we will have couple years to enjoy 200+ miles BEVs first then before ICE vehicles will finally be crushed by electric cars equipped with these new cells.
