SK Innovation Chosen As Lithium-Ion EV Battery Supplier By Mercedes-Benz

Editor’s Note: Mercedes has previously gotten its EV battery cells through Samsung SDI & Panasonic (via Magna & Tesla).

The Korean company SK Innovation has been chosen by Mercedes-Benz as its future supplier for electric vehicle lithium-ion battery cells, according to recent reports.

Mercedes-Benz is reportedly planning to deploy battery packs made from these Korean lithium-ion cells in a number of different electric vehicle (EV) types over the coming years.

A bit of background here, SK Innovation recently doubled production capacity at its facility in Seosan, Korea — with production there now running 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The company is reportedly planning to continue expanding manufacturing volume as further expected business opportunities arise.
