The future of the automobile is to be found in electric? Sony is convinced that want to invest in this sector. The company announced that it has started by the time production of lithium ion batteries for electric cars and hybrids. Sony has the idea that the demand for this type of battery will grow dramatically in the coming years and the company does not want to miss this opportunity, so as to build a dedicated plant in Japan.
Details are scarce at the moment: yesterday the first prototype battery was shown, measuring only 257×182 mm and promises longer “durability”. Major manufacturers of electric cars in Japan have already received offers from Sony, who probably will try to arrive at the international level. Even Panasonic invests in this sense: the image shows a Tesla opening with Panasonic batteries.
