SK Innovation will supply battery cells for Mercedes-Benz

SK Innovation is here to stay.

 

South Korea already has two big lithium cells manufacturers. LG Chem and Samsung SDI, but now SK Innovation has intentions of joining the party.

SK Innovation will supply cells to Mercedes-Benz. Those cells will be used in new electric car models starting 2017.

This may also mean that the Mercedes-Benz B-class Electric Drive will have its battery changed. The battery is currently made by Tesla Motors with Panasonic cells.

Since SK Innovation cells are already used in the Kia Soul EV battery, it will be no surprise to see them in new electric cars from Kia and Hyundai.

It’s great to see another cell maker emerging.

More than natural resources, are wasted human resources that bothers me the most. That's why I'm a strong advocate of a society based on cooperation, not competition, that helps every individual to reach his full potential so that he can contribute back to society. "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs".
