Yes, exactly. They were developed by SB-LiMotive which was a partnership between Samsung and Bosch. The ActiveE was the first EV to use these cells. Now the Fiat 500e will be using them and once BMW i launches all of their plug in offerings(for now the i3 & i8 but others are in development) will use them. BMW is very happy with their performance so far.
Recently Bosch bought out Samsung though, and the new entity is called Robert Bosch Battery Systems.
