Panasonic to Produce lithium-ion batteries for EVs from its Himeji plant in 2019
Posted on : 02 Jan, 2018
Japanese electronics major – Panasonic Corp is planning to produce lithium-ion batteries for electric cars at its Himeji plant in Hyogo Prefecture. Panasonic plans to start manufacturing in 2019. It is going to use its existing unused space at the plant which was earlier used for LCD TV panel production. Currently, Panasonic’s Himeji plant manufactures small and medium-size liquid crystal display panels for vehicles and medical equipment.
Global demand for electric vehicles is expected to grow manifold. Already several automakers are shifting towards low-emission vehicles as governments across the world enforce tighter emission regulations. China, the world’s biggest car market, is pushing the move toward electric cars. The country is also planning to ban fossil fuel cars.
Panasonic plans to sell the batteries for electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids to domestic automakers in Japan.
Panasonic already has five other lithium-ion battery production plants in Japan. It is also supplies lithium-ion batteries to Tesla in USA. Besides, Panasonic has also partnered with Tesla to operate the Gigafactory in Nevada, USA – that mass-produces lithium-ion batteries.
