An agreement has been reached between the two South Korean companies. It is expected that without recharging the new electric car will be able to drive about 800 kilometers.

Hyundai and Samsung are going to combine knowledge and resources for the production of electric cars with great “range”. An agreement on cooperation in this promising area has already been reached. Negotiations took place at the Samsung SDI Battery Factory in Cheonan, located 80 kilometers south of Seoul. In the framework of this meeting, in particular, a new generation of battery technologies was discussed. At the same time, the parties shared their best practices and accumulated experience in the field of battery development.

 So, back in March 2020, Samsung SDI showed a high-performance solid-state battery. With its help, without recharging, an electric car can cover a distance of 800 kilometers. The number of charge cycles here exceeds 1,000.

¬†Currently, batteries for electric cars and hybrid models of the Hyundai brand are supplied by LG Chem and SK Innovation. The timing of the appearance of new batteries for “long-range” electric vehicles has not yet been reported. Recall that in the American and European car markets today you can see the Hyundai Kona electrocross, whose cruising range on the EPA cycle reaches 415 kilometers.
