Battery Pack becomes more important than the electric car itself?

Battery Pack becomes more important than the electric car itself? -

Cost and range electric car capable of traveling electric cars are still challenges. Automakers are currently figuring out how to put the larger capacity battery packs with the lowest prices in their electric cars to make them more attractive to customers. This raises a question whether the battery supplier will become the key players that the manufacturers themselves.

LG Chem is working with General Motors to supply batteries for the upcoming 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. This partnership provides an opportunity for both companies to design other components such that the combined drive motor of some instruments designed by GM and others developed internally by LG Chem. This partnership is also one of the reasons GM able to launch its 0-mile electric car by the end of this year. Bolt EV was presented as a concept car in January 2015 Detroit Auto Show and is scheduled to go to mass production before the end of this year.

Panasonic, on the other hand, provides both money and technical expertise for lithium-ion cell "Gigafactory" Tesla in Reno, Nevada. In addition to collaboration with Tesla, the company also plans to enter the Chinese electric car market through a partnership with Dalian Levear Electric Company. As Chinese automakers normally rely heavily on foreign participation, therefore it is interesting to know how this collaboration will turn in the future.


CEO 'Fiat Automobiles Chrysler, Sergio Machrionne thought otherwise. He said in January that electric powertrains lead automakers to cede control of the design of the base vehicle suppliers. Car manufacturers still have to control the internal combustion engine to the design of a car and a switch to electric drive trains that would erase. battery suppliers should be able to sell battery cells and other components of new car manufacturers, non-traditional.

electric powertrain also make it easier for Apple to enter the automotive industry.

Other examples of companies which electric car manufacturers need to note are Faraday Future, which try to compete with Tesla, Dyson, a Bristish vacuum manufacturer and Samsung which sells cars that are currently rebadged versions of Renault products under its own brand in its home market, Korea.
