Sony To Make Electric Vehicles Batteries

Sony will start manufacturing lithium-ion batteries specifically for electric cars and hybrids and demand for these batteries will surely increase as more people buy hybrids and electric cars, so Sony says it is prepared to build dedicated plants for this purpose too. Sony will be competing against the likes of fellow Japanese company Panasonic in this realm along with other battery makers around the world and we should start seeing Sony-branded battery packs for electric and hybrid vehicles by about mid-decade………………


There is probably no one left doubting that electric vehicles will be a huge market in the future, and now it seems that Sony is agreeing, too. The company announced it will start making lithium-ion batteries specifically for electric cars and hybrids from the middle of this decade. A Sony VP said his company expects demand for such batteries to grow drastically in the years to come, adding big S is ready to build dedicated plants in Japan and elsewhere if necessary. Details are scarce at this point, but a first battery prototype for electric vehicles that was shown to the press measures 257 x 182mm and apparently boasts a long life. According to reports in various Japanese newspapers from today, Sony has already started offering its batteries to major electric car makers in Japan and elsewhere.
