GCC:
Toyota and Panasonic to establish joint venture specializing in automotive batteries: prismatic Li-ion, solid-state and next-gen
https://www.greencarcongress.com/2020/0 ... lanet.html

This decision comes just over a year since the two companies that they had concluded a business integration contract and a joint-venture contract toward the establishment of a new company. . . .

The joint venture announced by Toyota and Panasonic will develop highly competitive, cost-effective batteries that are safe and feature excellent quality and performance (in terms of capacity, output, durability, etc.).

Furthermore, the joint venture will supply batteries not only to Toyota but also, broadly and stably, to all customers.

The partners expect employment of approximately 5,100, including 2,400 at a subsidiary in China.

VW held their "Power Day" on Monday to discuss their huge plans to expand cell manufacturing.

Also saw a report that NorthVolt of Sweden got a $14B contract to supply batteries to VW.

Saw Matt Miller's interview of Herbert Diess, head of VW, on Bloomberg Markets: Euro Closing 3/16/21 begins at 34:22 of the full show video. Discussion of fast charging, and EV production, cells, etc.

Interesting comment by Diess:
You know actually, EVs have won the race...
All competitors are basically following us...
So we feel confident.
