Tesla is constantly improving battery technology for its vehicles. Last year, “biscuit” batteries were introduced, which should make electric vehicles cheaper.

The company claims the new 4680 battery cells will enable the production of larger, cheaper, safer and more efficient batteries. Now it has become known that Samsung SDI and LG Energy Solutions intend to receive huge contracts for the supply of batteries for new Tesla electric vehicles.

Tesla is already making the necessary changes at its factories to produce improved batteries for its vehicles. That being said, four leading battery manufacturers, including LG Energy Solutions and Samsung SDI, have announced plans to build their own versions of Tesla’s 4680 battery cells.

South Korean sources say Samsung SDI and LG Energy Solutions have already completed production of 4680 battery samples. Both companies are currently testing their 4680 batteries, with a view to mass production of batteries for Tesla’s electric vehicles in 2023.

The source adds that the new battery packs will debut in the Tesla Model Y electric vehicle.
