Sony Will Finally Make Electric Vehicle Batteries

While it’s late to the electric vehicle market, Sony’s entrance is well timed. Production capacity of global leaders for electrified vehicle batteries, Korea’s LG Chem and Samsung SDI and Japan’s Panasonic and Sanyo, is more or less locked up for years to come, opening a door for Sony to enter. The company’s new VC7 battery is arriving soon and will match the capacity specifications of the other leading suppliers. Its tiny size would make it easy to adapt to any battery pack.
