NAIAS 2017: Samsung's Next-Gen Battery can Fast Charge EVs in 20 Minutes
Samsung SDI presented an Innovative Next Generation Battery with Fast Charging Capability and High Energy Density that enables Electric Vehicles (EV) to Drive 600km at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2017 on the 9th of January, 2017 in COBO Center, Detroit.
  • Samsung Introduced Next-Gen Fastest Charging Battery at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2017 in Detroit
 

The high density battery will allow the EVs to drive up to 600Kms. Samsung introduced in its customer exhibition 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.

A number of automakers are working on EVs these days. Most of them are trying to make sure that their EVs get to have a range more than the average offered 350-400 km.

Samsung has plunged in this domain in order to make a new battery which will not only be able to charge faster than others but will have more density as well. The Samsung SDI has introduced a cutting edge battery that has the fastest charging ability which is not shown by another battery these days.

Along with that it has a high density as well which will allow the car to be driven up to 600kms in single charge. Well this will surely bring a revolution in the EV industry. This battery is light in weight which is the reason that it won’t affect the efficiency of the car as well.

It is built on the concept pf “integrated battery module” which is the latest concept of EV batteries on which SDI Samsung is working on. This concept is based on to maximize the safety and energy efficiency of the car.

According to the company this battery will have the capacity to be charged in mere20 minutes and will have 10 percent less components making it weight efficient as well. This kind of innovative technology will surely make Samsung stand at a high position in the EV market.

As the battery which will take as less as 20 minutes to charge will be preferred by most of the EV makers. One problem with the EVs of the current era is that they take time to charge thus time saving and more range is bound to give Samsung batteries an edge over other battery makers.

Sehwoong Jeong, Executive Vice President & General Manager of Automotive Battery & ESS Business of Samsung SDI, emphasized, “By providing the industry-leading technologies and products that meet the demand of our customers and market, we will contribute to a rapid market adoption of EVs in North America and worldwide."
