At present, it appears there are two superpowers in the EV battery world – Panasonic and Samsung – both fighting for the top spot with their ever-improving rate of tech.

And although Panasonic may have secured the all-important Tesla gig, Samsung’s clearly not fazed in the slightest, with ambitious announcements such as the one at this week’s NAIAS auto show in Detroit, highlighting its latest range of batteries that could find themselves in EVs within the next four years.

The firm’s next-generation of cells claim to be able to power a car for up to 372 miles, with a 20 minute charge adding over 310 miles onto an empty battery. We’re not sure about you, but we think that’s sort of performance is likely to even seem ‘acceptable’ for the most stubborn of EV doubters.

Put it this way. An average diesel saloon car will probably offer you around 350 miles or so per tank, with a full fill-up at the petrol station taking anywhere from 5-15 minutes. Not far off what Samsung promises as soon as 2021…

The Korean firm also unveiled its “integrated battery module”, comprising more than 24 cells with a higher capacity of 6~8kWh rather than the conventional 12 cells (with a capacity of 2~3kWh) – something which it claims is far more adequate for the new high-capacity EV world.
